Shih tzu may not be a gluttonous breed, but there are some food materials that must not be given to these dogs. One of the most common mistakes of owners is assuming that dogs can ingest any food that is eaten by humans. Well, that might always be the case since dogs are naturally curious creatures. They may mot know that some food can serve as poison to them.
Although, there are some human foods that Shih Tzus can safely consume, but as owners, it is our responsibility to keep following foods away from them that can be dangerous and harmful for them.
Here is a list of foods that Shih Tzus should not eat:
2. Macadamia nuts
Bladder stones in the dog are made of a phosphate mineral. Macadamia nuts, on the other hand contain lots of phosphorous which can lead to formation of the stones in the urinary tract. When not treated, this can lead to kidney failure and musculoskeletal problems.
