Remember to teach your children about these food so that your pet can de safe with every member of your family. Raw egg: specially the white part that contains an enzyme called avidin. This enzyme interferes with the absorption of biotin a "B vitamin". When this vitamin is low it causes skin and hair problems. Onions: It contains toxic ingredient called thiosulphate. This causes the red blood cells to burst while they circulate in the body which in turn cause your dog to be anemic. After eating the onions which can be in any form; dehydrate, raw, and even in baby food often given to puppies can cause illness.
