Dogs Shouldn't Eat Hot Dogs, and Other Pet-Unsafe Barbecue Foods
No matter how hard they beg, don't let them partake in these barbecue staples.
The biggest danger to dogs at a cookout isn’t poisoning—it’s choking. According to the ASPCA, bones from ribs and chicken wings, corn cobs, and discarded wooden skewers are all exactly the right size and shape to cause serious problems. They’re also the kind of things people leave out without a second thought. To curious pups, abandoned plates piled with bones, sticks, and corn look like an all-you-can-eat buffet, so keep yours away from food waste.
