10 Things Not to Feed Your Pets

Coffee

Caffeine — Do you know someone who lets their pet drink tea or coffee? You might not, but it’s worryingly common – and potentially lethal. There is no way to treat caffeine poisoning in an animal, and symptoms include rapid breathing, muscle spasms, bleeding, fits and increased restlessness. Unless you’re willingly feeding your pet caffeine, it’s unlikely that they’ll ingest it – just make sure your cat isn’t dunking their face into your coffee cup when you leave the room.
