Is your dog into garbage?

dog-garbageKeeping your dog away from the garbage is more that just ordinary sanitation. Dogs who are trash eaters are living dangerously.  They can digest many foreign objects and bone fragments which are very dangerous to their digestive tract.  If they are digesting moist food from the garbage, it may be toxic to their system.  Discarded food can grow fungus in just two or three days. This can pose a great risk to your dog.  Cheese products like old pizza are particularly dangerous because they contain toxins that can give your pet muscle tremors and seizures. It’s important to keep your pet away from the trash. If he does manage to get into the garbage, watch him closely. A loss of appetite, shivering or yellow eyes are signs that you must call your vet immediately. Give him lots of dog toys and dog treats and keep him away from the garbage!
