Food you should NOT give to your dog

We are happy when we see our pet happy. And our dog is happy when we give him food we, human beings, eat. But did you know that some human food can cause stomach upset, diarrhoea, serious health problems or even death of our beloved pet?

Here is a list of some of the many things I found on the Internet that we should avoid giving to him, even if these make his day:

  1. Chewing gum, candies, sweets and mints and artificial sweetener
  2. Chocolate, coffee and caffeine
  3. Grapes and raisins
  4. Avocados – I did not know about this one and shared an avocado with my dog just last month. Fortunately, I did not notice anything serious… this time (there will be no next time)
  5. Onions and garlic – I don’t know about garlic, some say it’s good others say it’s not. I think given the right quantity it’s OK. I found some useful information here (in French only) –
  6. Macademia nuts

What is good for us may turn out to be deadly for them. So next time you feed your dog with what you are eating, think twice.

 Do you know of any other food which can cause health problems to dogs? Thank you for sharing.

Pennisetum glaucum and purpureum

Pennisetum glaucum and purpureum are basically weedy grasses. At the right place, mixed with other ornamental plants, they become more than attractive plants. Probably originating in Africa, in a diffuse belt stretching from western Sudan to Senegal, and domesticated some 4,000 years ago in this region.

This species is adapted to a range of soil types, but is best on sandy or light loam soils.
