Fruits & Veggies for Dogs: What is Safe? What is Dangerous?

Most dogs will eat absolutely anything edible you place in front of their mouths, so before you give your dog free access to the refrigerator, be sure to familiarize yourself with the foods that are both safe and dangerous to your furry friend. Dogs’ bodies react much differently than ours do to the food they consume, so please play it safe!
