10 Foods Shih Tzu Should NOT Eat

Page 1 of 4

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:

1. Avocado

This fruit contains a toxin called persin that is found in the pit of the fruit, but is still distributed all throughout the fruit. Do give any part of this fruit to your dog.

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.

    I’ve owned three Shih Tzus and had a litter of these lovely creatures. At the present time I have Pekingese. What I want to know what will they gladly eat? I boil chicken and try all kinds of things they begrudgingly eat after much discussion!
