You don’t have to keep on feeding Shih Tzu random stuff. Be careful with its diet and meals. Many people think that dogs can eat anything the owner eat themselves but that’s a very wrong misconception.
As an owner it’s your responsibility to look after the healthy diet of Shih- Tzu. Below are mentioned those foods that can be poisonous & dangerous to them.
Macadamia nuts: Always keep your dogs away from Macadamia the globular edible nuts as they are high in phosphorous. As in dogs the bladder stones are mostly formed by phosphate. If your dog’s get stones in its bladder then they have a high risk of musculoskeletal complications and kidney failure.
Say no to avocados: For Shih Tzu dogs’ avocado ( A pear-shaped fruit with a rough leathery skin & smooth, oily edible flesh) as it acts as poison so don’t ever give them any meal which contains avocado.
Sorry Candies are a big no too: Basically candies are made using xylitol which are very harmful to dogs but not humans. It causes an increase in insulin production which leads to high absorption of hypoglycemia and sugar from the veins. When a dog has low sugar levels the chances of feebleness, seizures, liver failures and incoordination increases.
Onions too: Sorry folks you can’t give your dog onions as it has sulfate in it which bursts red blood cells. This can lead to anemia. The outcome of eating onions includes vomiting, diarrhea and fatigue.
Grapes, Raisins and Currants: After eating these fruits your dog may experience fatigue, stomach pain, diarrhea and vomiting so avoid these fruits too. For dogs eating a lot of grapes have proven the main reason behind kidney failure too.
Chocolates: Believe it or not chocolates can also be harmful to some creatures. Sadly dogs come under that category. So chocolates are made up of methylxanthines derivative (as caffeine, theobromine or theophylline) which results in diarrhea, nausea, breathing difficulties and increased thirst in dogs.
