We all love our fur babies!! Some of us will do anything in the world for our pets. We here at Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa all love our boy, Diesel.
But it's a constant battle about what you can and can't give him with the people at work.
We all want to feed them table food! Especially when they're looking up at you with those big sad eyes. But if you're anything like me you're always worried. Are they going to get sick, Are they going to choke, Is the bone going to splinter, Is it going to hurt their belly, Is it gonna make them sick to where they mess up the whole house. All these things go through my head and they are all legitimate concerns.

So here's the definitive list of items you should never feed your dog. Somethings I knew, something I didn't, But I'm sure glad I know them now.
