We found in coffee a stimulant drink because of its content in trimeltilxanthin. In addition to dependence, the consumption of this substance has strong stimulating effects on the central nervous system and other cardiovascular system. They are also present in tea or cola.

As with humans, excess coffee has serious consequences for the body causing vomiting, agitation and can even lead to death.


As we mentioned in our article on why dogs can not eat chocolate , dogs are unable to metabolize theobromine , so chocolate considers it a forbidden food for dogs.

Offering chocolate in excessive doses can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration and can even cause the dogs to die. Still, although it only gives you only small pieces, it is also a detrimental product as it increases cardiac contractility.

Milk and cheese

As with chocolate, dogs are unable to metabolize milk, so we should not offer them. It is a non-fatal but harmful product that causes vomiting, diarrhea and various gastrointestinal problems.

We should only offer our dog specific milk during its growth phase.

Cheese is not as harmful as milk, however its abuse can lead to problems such as pancreatitis or more serious problems if our dog is lactose intolerant. So we should avoid this type of food.

Yeast or yeast

The conventional yeasts we use for cakes and other recipes become a toxic product inside the body of the dog. The consequences can be the accumulation of gas, vomiting, pain, discomfort and lethargy.


We should eliminate any trace of nuts from our dog’s diet for its large amount of phosphorus. The effects of excessive ingestion can be vomiting, muscle pain, weakness, dizziness, tremors, kidney failure and even fever in the dog.

Some fruits can be really lethal as is the case of macadamia nuts, in addition they can cause the appearance of calculations.


An excess of salt is harmful to your dog’s health, vomiting or diarrhea are visible symptoms, but there are more serious consequences that we can not observe. Dogs with heart problems may be more affected and aggravate their condition if they ingest it.


Although we do not believe that anyone is able to offer alcohol, the truth is that it can happen by accident if we do not have the well-kept and hidden bottles of our pet. An excess causes symptoms similar to humans, toxicity affects the dog causing vomiting and even an ethyl coma .

Raw eggs

If you are going to use eggs in the BARF diet, you should make sure of their quality and condition before you offer them. The possibility of contracting salmonella is the same that can occur with us.

However, boiled egg is a very beneficial product for our mascot, we can bake it and offer once a week to our dog to improve the shine of the hair. It is also a source of protein and taurine.

Fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables should be present in the dog’s food (about 15%) and their consumption should be habitual. In our article on forbidden fruits and vegetables for dogs we explain which are the most harmful.

Undoubtedly, the most important to know is the avocado for its high content in persina, toxins and vegetable fat that make its consumption is a real risk to the health of our dog. It is a toxic food, the most serious consequences can be pancreatitis, deficiencies in the pulmonary system and can even affect the heart.

Citrus fruits are not toxic foods but the truth is that their high sugar content can lead to obesity and its excess can cause intestinal malaise .

As with humans, raw potatoes are a toxic product inside our bodies. We can offer it without problem whenever we cook it before.
