Elevated dog bowls allow dogs to eat at a more natural stance, keeping their neck, back and hips in a standing position without putting undue stress on these joints. They also keep your puppy from swallowing too much air while eating which can cause indigestion, vomiting, choking and bloat which can be deadly. This is particularly important for English Bulldog puppies as they have a deep chest cavity that is more prone to bloat than other breeds.
Pitted Fruits - (Peaches, Pears, Cherries, and Apricots) The pits of these fruits contain small doses of cyanide, which can be fatal to smaller dogs. Also, if the pit is swallowed whole, it may become lodged in the intestinal tract, where the blockage will have to be surgically removed. Raw Fish - Raw fish, especially salmon, can contain parasites, usually fluke larvae. The dog consumes the fish, and the larvae hatch in your dogs digestive tract, attaching themselves to his intestinal walls. Symptoms can take up to a week to exhibit and usually mimic other canine diseases, such as distemper or parvovirus. The hazard here is misdiagnosis by the veterinarian, leading to an improper or ineffective treatment. If you choose to feed your dog fish, be sure to cook it thoroughly to kill any bad critters that could be hiding inside.
Alcoholic Beverages - Dogs physiologies are not equipped to handle alcohol consumption. They are extremely susceptible to alcohol poisoning, and even small amounts can lead to digestive problems or even death. Bread Dough - Because it is soft, dogs will often swallow the dough without chewing it. When the dough hits your dogs stomach, his body heat will cause the dough to rise inside his stomach. This rising action can cause bloating or vomiting. To compound things further, the rising action creates alcohol as a by-product, and your dog may experience the symptoms listed in the previous paragraph.
