We have all succumbed to the temptation to invite what we eat, but we must be careful because some foods can harm our dog.
Feeding a dog
We have all been caught in this easy trap of giving our dog the leftovers of our own food. For practicality, for economy, or because we see it with that little face giving pity and we can not resist so much tenderness. The food of humans can be a delight for our beloved animal, but also cause of discomforts, illnesses, and even worse situations.

1. Chocolate: It is the main recommendation, and one that you must comply with the table. Chocolate contains an alkaloid called theobromine, which in the can increases the heart rate, stimulates the central nervous system and negatively influences the arteries. When the dog consumes chocolate, it can present vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, and in extreme cases (due to abuse or sensitivity) to heart failure and heart attacks.
2. Nuts: In particular nuts, have a large amount of phosphorus, a mineral that causes gallstones and affects the muscular system of the dog, causing tremors and even paralysis in the legs.
3. Avocados (avocados): This delicious fruit has persin, a substance that is toxic to dogs, and is present in meat, leaves and skin. It can cause stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting and in extreme cases: pancreatitis. Also the avocado bone can suffocate the dog when swallowed, as it is not soluble and has a considerable size.

6. Potatoes and tomatoes: The potato has starches (starches) that prevent the correct digestive functioning of the dog, when consumed in excess. But the problem with this tuber lies in the skin, stem and leaves, which have solanine, a toxin that causes damage to the digestive and nervous system. This substance is also present in tomatoes.
