Wow amazing post. this threat should become sticky...

There is some tip I wanted to share with you.
We live in Tampa, and we have some hot days here at the summer. when I want to spoil my dogs, I give them a sweet treat that makes them so so so happy.

I buy these diet frozen ice sticks, make sure they do not have any colors or sugar in them (there are lot's of good ones around, also very cheap), I place them at the freezer, and when we are back from a walk at the hot sun I soil them with a piece of that frozen good stuff, you can't imagine how happy they are...

Woof Woof guys...

I make my dog treats without any butter or oil or anything that isn't good for a dog. Dogs do need some fat in their diet, so I use natural fat that is found in natural peanut butter and ground flax seed, etc. The ground flax seed is also rich in Omega 6 and Omega 3.

VERY BAD idea. Some of the artificial sweeteners used in diet foods are DEADLY to dogs, and they aren't all that good for us, either.

Actually, there's nothing wrong with honest butter (not margarine), olive oil and even animal fats in moderation for dogs. Animal fats and butter are much closer to their natural food sources.

Need to be careful about the diet sugar free stuff. A lot of the diet stuff have artificial sweeteners that are not good for dogs.

Other common toxins are apple seed, olives, and avocado.
My Rocky LOVES apples so I cut the apple in half and take out all the seeds for him. Its a great snack for him to have. My dogs also love to eat whole raw carrots.

After my experience this past 24hrs. with xylitol poisoning (not confirmed but they have all the symptoms) I'm never going to have it in my house again.

I also didnt know at first that chocolates can harm dogs. I use to give my dog a chocolate before he died. But, he didnt died because of the chocolates i gave, sometimes i saw him too weak,i guess chocolate is the reason why he is weak. Thanks for the post. Im planing to buy a new puppy, so it can help me a lot.
