    My golden retriever eat most of those things. He loves beer and milk. He is a very healthy dog.

      Ced, please educate yourself about what foods are dangerous for dogs to ingest. You are an irresponsible pet parent and are putting your dog at risk.

        Darlene, you come off like a judgmental, overreactive twit. Unless you have one of those useless small dogs, a limited amount of beer or milk or even (gasp!) an occasional grape is unlikely to cause any significant damage. Dogs are omnivores and scavengers with a short digestive tract with a very low pH (lower than us primates do). They move food and the non-food items they inevitably ingest through their gut quickly. Unless their diet consists strictly of the foods in the (overstated) infographic above, the dog will be just fine. As far as grapes go, no one knows why some dogs react so severely, with renal failure and death. For decades, trainers gave their dogs frozen grapes as a treat and nothing came of it. We’re still figuring that one out so it is better to probably control access to them. All things in moderation, dear.

        I agree! Also who would give their dog beer!Really not a good thing to do at all. And to Glenda you are SO wrong, dogs don’t need none of that shit, not good for them!

    To much corn can cause stomach upset, someone needs to let most dog food makers know that as a lot of dry dog foods are mostly corn.

      Most dog food MAKERS KNOW about too much corn. It’s dog OWNERS that need to be informed.

    This chart says most dogs are lactose intolerant, but Paula Deen’s dog treat recipe calls for powdered milk. Which is it? Is there a substitute?

      I presume it is immaterial, but the recipe calls for “non fat milk” says nothing about powdered.
