10 Things Not to Feed Your Pets

Alcohol

Alcohol — This one’s a no-brainer. We all know the effects alcohol consumption can have on a human, but its effects are amplified in cats and dogs. Affecting both liver and brain, it takes much less than a human would consume before your pet is feeling the effects: two teaspoons of whisky will put an average-size cat into a coma. Dogs, too, are at risk of vomiting, may have difficulty moving, may develop breathing problems, and could enter a coma – especially small dogs. Both animals could die from alcohol consumption – it would take just one more teaspoon of whisky to kill your cat. Whatever the proof of your beverage, don’t offer it to your pet.
