  1. It’s important to know that animals are not like humans. They have different body systems than we do and sometimes, something that may be good for us is not good for the animal. I’ve always known that dogs shouldn’t eat sweets, especially chocolate. I used to have a dog, and we always made sure to keep it from eating anything it shouldn’t.

    If you want to give your dog a treat, make sure it’s actually for dogs. These days they have cakes and cookies that are made especially for dogs, but can be eaten by people as well. For instance, for those who like to throw their dogs birthday parties (which i’ve never understood) people can buy birthday cakes for the dogs that are safe to eat for the animals and for the humans.
