We’ve all heard it time and time again dogs can eat “this” but they can’t eat “that”, but you have to admit it’s pretty hard keeping track of what is on the “No” and “Yes” list.

Here are a few key foods that may have left you stumped as far as giving into your pooch pals begging.

Dogs CANNOT eat salt

While you and Fido are sharing the couch you find yourself throwing him a couple salt-filled potato chips. However, you should know this may not be a good idea. Salty foods can cause excessive thirst and urination leading to sodium ion poisoning. In this case watch out for symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, high temperature, and seizures or just avoid the salt.

Dogs CAN eat salt-free snacks like popcorn and pretzels

 We can’t resist them and I’m sure your dog can’t too. Just like us, once the smell of that fresh popcorn or oven-baked pretzels hit their noses,  you know your four-legged friend will be begging to have a bite. So feel free to share just as long as they’re unsalted. In the end less salt and no butter will be good for the both of you!
