Dogs, cats need meat. They are predators. Leave salads and brocoli for cows, dear doctor. Let me guess. Are you wegetarian?

Dogs are predators. Why do humans constantly try to make vegetarians out of carnivores and omnivores?

You all can keep listening to this crap but let me know when you find a wild k9 thats a vegetarian. We do not share the same diet just get past it. People like this clown keep passing this type of information like it real and have convinced people they know something. Let me know when someone gets a wolf chasing down a damn potato on film.

Folks, do you really love your pet enough to save his life from your spoiling the pet? Listen to your vet and know what you can and can't give the little guy! Damn it! Ever heard of pancreatic disease? Don't be such a lover of your little blessing you kill the buddy! Bird meat is fine if you pick every damned bone and ligament out so as not to choke your buddy. All sugar free or low cal diet stuff has chems that are poison to dogs. When you share your plate, clear what you give your best friend with a smart Vet and look up pet stuff online or you could be giving your best pal and family member a death sentance with your love for them.

I agree. I never even turn my speakers on. I never watch the videos. Some of us do prefer to read!

I thought broccoli was a no no for dogs as is turkey skin, why no mention of that but I agree with others a list would really have been nice. While I realize ads are important could we make them shorter and not have them between EVERY story.

Broccoli is a no-no for dogs. It causes crystals to form in the kidneys in some breeds. My friend has two maltese dogs who died because of this.. Most vets will say that only some breeds have problems with kidney crystalization but i say why mess with it at all..

if you're referring to struvite crystals in the urine, they can be broken up with vitamin c.
