#3 Onions and Garlic
Onions and other related vegetables, such as shallots, scallions, and garlic, contain substances that are damaging to dogs' red blood cells. Among common vegetables in the house, these may be among the most dangerous for your dog!
Why It Can Be Bad For Dogs:
The stronger and more concentrated the source of onions or garlic, the worse the effects on the dog that eats them. Worst of all, the symptoms from the damage may take several days to show up. According to the ASPCA, “affected dogs may seem weak or reluctant to move, or they may appear to tire easily after mild exercise. Their urine may be orange-tinged to dark red in color.”
What to do:
Onions and garlic are seriously dangerous for dogs and you should get your pooch to a vet immediately for examination and care; blood transfusions may even be required!
