Hats off to you for posting this Brenda! I knew all the ones mentioned in the article. All pet lovers needs this critical information to protect their loving animals.
I also give my pets vitamins/minerals as well, only veterinarian recommended no doubt! They also get bones to chew on as my neighbor does wild life hunting, which I do not like but I cannot control what he does & then he passes the scraps & bones for my dogs. My animals are very healthy & very well mannered & most of all Happy & contented!

such a sweet cat for the picture :)...I can say that my cats don't eat table food, only a canned food once in a blue moon and dry food, every day...really, they won't eat cooked or raw meat, can you believe it?

OMG. We have a grape arbor and every fall the dogs eat the grapes that fall to the ground. I did not realize that they would be harmful!!! They also love to eat apples that fall from the trees.
