10 Things Not to Feed Your Pets

Dog

Fat Trimmings and Bones — It would seem odd to include this in a list of things your pet shouldn’t eat, but fat can cause pancreatitis in dogs and stomach problems in cats, while bones present a very real choking hazard. What’s more, if a bone splinters in your pet’s stomach, it can slice its way through your cat’s innards as they are digested. No more table scraps, please — get your bones from a pet store.
