Dear friends,

I found this informative article that is a must read for all who have dogs at home! This article comes from a reputable website dedicated to providing good and accurate information particularly on animal health issues. It is shocking to find that many of the food served on our plates are actually harmful to our dogs… even deadly in some cases.

Do read this article and share it with your friends, it will make a difference. It is very important for us to read up and become knowledgeable on animal care, especially if you have decided to take on one (or many animals) under your care… Taking responsibility of our pets and ensuring that they are well-taken care of should be priority.

Caring for an animal that cannot return the favour is an act of pure kindness… Which one of the foods below did you not know was hazardous to dogs till you read this article? Do leave a comment and let me know… Are there any more types of food that should be added to the list??

Tsem Rinpoche

 


 

Dangerous Food For The Dogs

 
Avocado

Avocados contain a substance called persin. It’s harmless for humans who aren’t allergic. But large amounts might be toxic to dogs. If you happen to be growing avocados at home, keep your dog away from the plants. Persin is in the leaves, seed, and bark, as well as in the fruit.

 
Alcohol

Beer, liquor, wine, foods containing alcohol — none of it’s good for your dog. That’s because alcohol has the same effect on a dog’s liver and brain that it has on humans. But it takes far less to do its damage. Just a little can cause vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, problems with coordination, difficulty breathing, coma, even death. And the smaller the dog, the greater the effect.

 
Onions and Garlic

Onions and garlic in all forms — powdered, raw, cooked, or dehydrated — can destroy a dog’s red blood cells, leading to anemia. That can happen even with the onion powder found in some baby food. An occasional small dose is probably OK. But just eating a large quantity once or eating smaller amounts regularly can cause poisoning. Symptoms of anemia include weakness, vomiting, little interest in food, dullness, and breathlessness.

 
Coffee, Tea, and Other Caffeine

Caffeine in large enough quantities can be fatal for a dog. And, there is no antidote. Symptoms of caffeine poisoning include restlessness, rapid breathing, heart palpitations, muscle tremors, fits, and bleeding. In addition to tea and coffee – including beans and grounds — caffeine can be found in cocoa, chocolate, colas, and stimulant drinks such as Red Bull. It’s also in some cold medicines and pain killers.

 
Grapes and Raisins

Although it isn’t clear why, grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in dogs. And just a small amount can make a dog ill. Repeated vomiting is an early sign. Within a day, the dog will become lethargic and depressed. The best prevention is to keep grapes and raisins off counters and other places your dog can reach.

 
Milk and Other Dairy Products

Milk and milk-based products can cause diarrhea and other digestive upset as well as set up food allergies (which often manifest as itchiness).

 
Macadamia Nuts

Dogs should not eat macadamia nuts or foods containing macadamia nuts because they can be fatal. As few as six raw or roasted macadamia nuts can make a dog ill. Symptoms of poisoning include muscle tremors, weakness or paralysis of the hindquarters, vomiting, elevated body temperature, and rapid heart rate. Eating chocolate with the nuts will make symptoms worse, possibly leading to death.

 
Candy and Gum

Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol can cause an increase in the insulin circulating through your dog’s body. That can cause your dog’s blood sugar to drop and can also cause liver failure. Initial symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and loss of coordination. Eventually, the dog may have seizures. Liver failure can occur within just a few days.

 
Chocolate

The toxic agent in chocolate is theobromine. It’s in all kinds of chocolate, even white chocolate. The most dangerous kinds, though, are dark chocolate, chocolate mulch, and unsweetened baking chocolate. Eating chocolate, even just licking the icing bowl, can cause a dog to vomit, have diarrhea, and be excessively thirsty. It can also cause abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures, and death.

 
Fat Trimmings and Bones

Table scraps often contain meat fat that a human didn’t eat and bones. Both are dangerous for dogs. Fat trimmed from meat, both cooked and uncooked, can cause pancreatitis in dogs. And, although it seems natural to give a dog a bone, a dog can choke on it. Bones can also splinter and cause an obstruction or lacerations of your dog’s digestive system. It’s best to just forget about the doggie bag.

 
Persimmons, Peaches, and Plums

The problem with these fruits is the seeds or pits. The seeds from persimmons can cause inflammation of the small intestine in dogs. They can also cause intestinal obstruction. Obstruction is also a possibility if a dog eats the pit from a peach or plum. Plus, peach and plum pits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to both humans and dogs. The difference is humans know not to eat them. Dogs don’t.

 
Raw Eggs

There are two problems with giving your dog raw eggs. The first is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli. The second is that an enzyme in raw eggs interferes with the absorption of a particular B vitamin. This can cause skin problems as well as problems with your dog’s coat if raw eggs are fed for a long time.

 
Salt

It’s not a good idea to share salty foods like chips or pretzels with your dog. Eating too much salt can cause excessive thirst and urination and lead to sodium ion poisoning. Symptoms of too much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, elevated body temperature, and seizures. It may even cause death.

 
Sugary Foods and Drinks

Too much sugar can do the same thing to dogs that it does to humans. It can lead to obesity, dental problems, and possibly the onset of diabetes.

 
Yeast Dough

Before it’s baked, bread dough needs to rise. And, that’s exactly what it would do in your dog’s stomach if your dog ate it. As it swells inside, the dough can stretch the dog’s abdomen and cause severe pain. In addition, when the yeast ferments the dough to make it rise, it produces alcohol that can lead to alcohol poisoning.

 
Your Medicine

Reaction to a drug commonly prescribed for humans is the most common cause of poisoning in dogs. Just as you would do for your children, keep all medicines out of your dog’s reach. And, never give your dog any over-the-counter medicine unless told to do so by your vet. Ingredients such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen are common in pain relievers and cold medicine. And, they can be deadly for your dog.

  2. dhs on Apr 13, 2018 at 11:10 pm

    the worst thing that can be fed to a dog (big or small) is the mushroom verticillium

  3. Shelly Ballard on Jan 7, 2018 at 7:43 pm

    Thank you! Just took dog to vet. Sick from chili. Didn’t know how bad garlic & onions were. Knew about chocolate and raisins. Not the others so much. Dog gave me a scare. Mini dachshund, 14 yr old. I feel horrible. Appreciate info greatly!!

    • Joy Kam on Jan 8, 2018 at 8:34 am

      Hello Shelly,

      Thank you!

  4. Anne Ong on Oct 18, 2016 at 9:28 pm

    Wow!! I never ever gave this a thought that dogs cant sat so many things. Many people i know just simply feed their dogs anythin..including fruits.But luckily not gum as listed here because it is very gluey and will get stuck in their throat and suffocate the dog to death. Thank you very much Rinpoche for sharing this very important information with us _/\_ 🙂

  5. samfoonheei on Jul 13, 2016 at 5:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.
    At least now i know more of what can and cannot of foods for my pet.I will share it with my friends so they are careful too.

  6. Michael Dearing on Mar 21, 2016 at 2:19 am

    I am curious if some hot peppers would have the same health benefits for a dogs health as they do for humans. I’ve been reading so much negative news about vaccines I kinda feel that sensible eating is more effective and safer than injecting posions and taking part in medical statistics by being that test subject

    • Tsem Rinpoche on Apr 5, 2016 at 3:29 pm

      Dear Michael Dearing,

      Dogs are like humans. They have different body temperaments. Some things one dog can eat another may not. It would be good to do research if overall can dogs eat chili and do let me know your findings. I would be interested here.

      And then we must experiment with our dogs if we find out that a certain food is generally safe for dogs to consume.

      Thank you.

    • Kps on Jan 22, 2017 at 2:24 am

      Hot peppers have no health benefits to dogs and can cause digestive irritation.

  7. Puppy School on Mar 23, 2015 at 5:47 am

    I experienced countless difficulty as of late with
    my dog, i dreamed of him to listen to me, i have found many estimable information in this site.

  8. Sally on Sep 24, 2014 at 12:27 pm

    Sorry to say so but some of this information is inaccurate. Not sure about all of it but I know for sure that garlic is totally fine for dogs and is used in many dog foods and also as a natural remedy for keeping fleas away. I’ve had several good vets tell me this and it has been used on dogs for hundreds of years.

    • Richard on Apr 26, 2017 at 7:17 am

      Garlic is not fine golf dogs. It contains thiosulfates that cause clumping of red blood cells, reducing their ability to carry oxygen and causing them to die much quicker than replacements can be produced leading to anemia. Garlic is less dangerous than onion. If you look at the detailed ingredients of dog food that contains onion or garlic, you will find the quantities are less than a few milligrams per 100g or 1000g.

      • Pastor Shin Tan on Apr 29, 2017 at 8:42 am

        Thank you for your comment. I read from a few articles that consumption of around 15 to 30 gram of garlic per kilogram for dogs will result in harmful changes in a dog’s blood. As the average clove of supermarket garlic weighs between 3 and 7 grams, that would be quite a number of cloves. A pet’s weight, type of breed and prior health history can vary the toxicity level of ingested garlic, so it is best to consult your regular vet. It may take up to two to four days after your pet eats garlic for symptoms to appear, so keep a look out of the symptoms, such as: include breathlessness, lethargy, diarrhea, vomiting, pale gums, an elevated heart rate, an increased respiratory rate, weakness, exercise intolerance, and collapse.

        • Richard on Apr 29, 2017 at 8:49 pm

          If you’re cooking yourself than you may be able to monitor the exact amount of garlic. However, it is surprising how much garlic and onion is in some Italian/French/Asian recipes!

  9. Lucas Roth on Feb 26, 2014 at 9:42 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this information. My little brother wants to give m dog milk and i day no because i read it somewhere. It was here! Now i have solid proof. Anyway i would never give my dog these thing and i never will for his sake. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  10. Carmen Lin @ KMP on Nov 19, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    Oh My God! I didn’t know that dog cannot eat bones, yet my family give the leftover bone to the dogs. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this useful information to all dogs’ owner.

  11. PHYLLIS LAWRENCE on Oct 31, 2013 at 4:28 am

    can dogs have plain greek yougart..or plain yougart….love your site..

  12. VInnie Tan on Sep 15, 2013 at 1:50 am

    Yikes! I did not know that there were so many food that dogs are not suppose to eat. I always thought that dogs can eat almost everything. After knowing this, I better warn some of the dog lovers that do not know about this. Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us Rinpoche.

  13. Felix Kong on Feb 21, 2013 at 2:26 am

    Thank you Rinpoche sharing,just realize that doggies choke bone will affected the digestion. After read this blog ,know that dog also same with human , need take care of their daily meal for more healthy life. Will share to the doggies owner too.

  14. Jutika Lam on Feb 17, 2013 at 3:20 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Though I don’t have a pet or dog I still find this article very helpful to me because with this article I can help other people who have dogs but don’t know about such facts at all, it may seem like a small article but it is a very big and serious thing when it comes to watching what your dog can eat and cannot eat.

    This article has also boosted my knowledge on what a dog cannot eat as well as my knowledge when other people feed a stray dog one of this 16 foods and I see it and I would stop them from feeding the restricted food to the stray dog.

    One out of the 16 foods that blew my mind was that dogs cannot eat bones because I have seen hundreds of dogs being feed and eating bones.

    Anyway Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this very knowledgeable blog post.

    Love
    Jutika

  15. Sean Wang on Dec 3, 2012 at 12:27 am

    This is extremely interesting as I did not know about most of these foods. I guess I have to be more careful about what I feed to my furry little friends. Thanks for the useful information.

  16. Jessica Yap on Nov 26, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    OMB! I cannot believe that there are so many types of food that cannot be fed to our dogs! This piece of information is handy because i am looking to adopt a doggie soon and i need to brush up on how to look after our furry friends. Need to circulate this to my friends with doggies..

    Thank you so much for sharing , Rinpoche!

  17. edward ooi on Nov 19, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting this article. I found out that dog cannot eat bones.I thought that dog can chew and eat bones without having any problem but they will choke on bones.

  18. Sean Wang on Nov 18, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    Thank you for sharing these, Rinpoche. It is extremely beneficial to learn what your dog cannot eat. This guide would be helpful for those who have dogs. Hope less dogs will suffer because of the owner’s ignorance.

  19. Lucas Roth on Nov 2, 2012 at 12:46 am

    wow half of these i did not know. this is quite interesting for me and now i know what i can and cannot feed to my dogs. 😀

  20. beatrix ooi on Oct 23, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Oh my..I’ve no idea that dogs can’t eat all these food. I used to have a dog in Penang when I was little. My uncle used to feed her with all kind of weird food(including chocolate). But luckily she didn’t die. She was given away after my uncle has discovered his sickness. She was a very obedient dog. I miss her very much.
    Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love,
    beatrix

  21. Julien Roth on Oct 21, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Wow i had no idea that grapes and raisins were bad for dogs. Well now i know the list, and i will be sure never to give any of these foods to dogs.

    Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  22. David Lai on Oct 11, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    These foodstuffs are really interesting because some like fats and dog bones are what most people feed their pet dogs. This is really good information for all dog owners so we can take care to ensure our dogs eat good food that do not cause long term damage to their little bodies. I think that Tsem Rinpoche takes care of his dogs really well and that this is a part of ongoing research that Rinpoche does with his students to ensure the dogs are always healthy and happy.

  23. mayy on Sep 17, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Thank you for sharing such informative advice. Those who cares should read this and avoid in feeding them. In fact, it is an eye opener to know. I didn’t know that diary products are no no likewise Nuts and sugary food.

  24. Any Loke on Sep 9, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Thank you so much for the sharing Rinpoche.. Now I knew that all these food are harmful, I better keep FiFi the vacumm cleaner away.. Cos I really love her

  25. Sharon Saw on Aug 21, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    Thank you for sharing this really useful info. I used to feed my dog cheese! Also there were chocolate doggy treats which made me think that chocolates were okay for dogs (once i came home from work and found a kit kat wrapper shredded in the living room and i thought it was my husband who had eaten it but later found out it was my dog! My husband had asked me why i thought he had decimated the wrapper…)

    Anyway i shall definitely keep these tips in mind and share them as all dog owners should know this.

  26. nicholas on Aug 19, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.
    I have been seeing people giving their dogs eat so many type of food and some of them mentioned above. We really need to be very careful and of course caring to our pets. What the do and don’ts. Instead of we thought that we are being good for sharing what we have with our lovely pets we actually cause more suffering to them. Learn up and get more knowledge is important and this is definitely a great sharing for all the dog’s lover. We show our care by our right action not by our negligent and irresponsible attitude.

  27. wei theng on Aug 17, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    This is very informative. Now i learned that actually we should not give milk or dairy product to dog. Also, should not let them have raw eggs too. I must let my friends who have dogs to know about this as people used to told me that they let their dog drink milk and have raw egg so that it will be good to their fur. For Chinese, some also used to give their dogs left over food. this would be bad for the dogs too as it is normally salty and bad for dogs.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these. Now we have more knowledge to be a more responsible dog owner.

    […] all of those mentioned above about dog treatment, you are sure that your pet would be well. Dog Treatments All living entities in the globe need special treatment to guarantee their progress …ns, can get sick and sometimes need supportive care to make them feel more comfortable at home […]

  29. Grace ( KSJC ) on Aug 7, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Thank u Rinpoche for the information. it useful for us and share with other who have dogs.

  30. bengkooi on Aug 6, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Thank you for sharing this. I have always known about chocolate, avocado and grape products, but the rest are new to me and this is very valuable information indeed. As they say, a dog is for life, and our dog’s welfare is totally dependent on us. So, since we have taken this living sentient being home and into our lives, we should educate ourselves as much as possible on how to provide the best care for them.

    Rinpoche is a shining example of animal care, and if you ever have the chance to get to know Mumu, Oser and Dharma, you will be able to see for yourself how happy, well fed and well cared for they are. Rinpoche spares no expense when it comes to their health, and when they are very ill, as Mumu was a couple of years ago, Rinpoche even gets pujas and dedicates statues to their well being.

    The last time Mumu was ill with pancreatitis, we had Medicine Buddha and Namgyalma pujas done for him, and a statue of Medicine Buddha dedicated for his long life and swift recovery. True enough, Mumu is back to normal, and hasnt had an attack of pancreatitis for a year now.

    I found that giving the wrong type of dog food to my pet will cause him skin allergy. He is an English bulldog and he looks tough but he is such a sweetie. English bulldogs get skin rashes easily if they take chicken flavour pet food so I bought organic vegetarian lamb pet food instead. It worked. His skin rashes and allergy disappeared. We need to know all kinds of food our pet cannot take so we do not cause them harm.

  32. Su Ming on Aug 4, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    OMG, I almost fed Gizmo some Avocado snacks the other day. I have threw those snacks away.

    It is very scary and pet owners should look through all the ingredients before buying the snacks or food. Most of these manufacturers are very commercial and they do not have intensive research done to the food for animals.

    Do not take this lightly as it can affect your pet in a long run and could be detrimental to their health in a short run also.

  33. william on Aug 2, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    Thank you for the informativearticle. Now I know so manyitems thsticould not feed my dogs with. I was guilty of feeding my dogs raw eggs and the left over meat/fats cos i thought it will be good for them. How ignorant of me! It will not happen again. Recently, I heard from a friend that a dog treathebought from a pet store has avacado in it! How could this happen? Doesn’t the manufacturer know better of what to put in or not! So, dog owners, please read the ingredients carefully before feeding your dog any food products.

  34. David Lai on Jul 30, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Omg! Zamkar would just eat everything and anything that falls off our plates and that’s very scary. I have to be extra careful because Zamkar always hover around sniffing every time I am having my meals. On the flip side, Zamkar’s stomach is made of steel.

    There was a time, he dived into a cake and ate it all up and there was another time, he ate all the wax off the tea lights from a packet of tea lights. However, I am not going to risk giving him any of these types of food. In fact, I never give him any human food.

  35. Paris on Jul 30, 2012 at 3:34 am

    It’s important to also find out the sensitivities of your particular dog’s breed. For example, schnauzers are prone to suffering pancretitis and kidney so their diets would have to be further adjusted accordingly to suit their health conditions (ie they shouldn’t be given so much meat, food with high fat level etc).

    Then there’s the opposite side of the spectrum – our family have also had dogs that eat everything and nothing at all happens to them. So while it does take some time for us to ascertain each individual dog’s dietary habits, allergies, sensitivities etc, we should try as much as possible to go with what is recommended by the vets or on the many sources we can now find on dogs (on and offline). Always better to be safe than sorry, especially when a mumu’s life is in our hands.

  36. Leu Chong Hin (KH) JB on Jul 29, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    如果我们要飼養寵物,应多了解它们的生活習性,那么,就可以漸少对它们的伤害。Thanks

  37. Tan HP - KH(JB) on Jul 29, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Very useful information, would be sharing to all i know. Now i know why my Great Grand Mother stopped me from feeding the dog with chocolate when I was a young boy. And being a boy I used to teased the dog with hot chilli mixed with food. Luckily chilli is not in the list. Even though Dog is Man’s best friend, we have to be selective in sharing the food to avoid harming them.

  38. jennifer on Jul 29, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the list of foods that furry babies cannot eat.
    I’m also told that eggplant and tomatoes are not good for doggies as they can cause indigestion. And also chicken is very bad for doggies with very sensitive skin . I have a furry baby who is highly allergic to chicken and would break up in a most awful and distressing rash. Most the chickens that we purchase in the supermarkets and wet markets are not free range and would have had hormone injections, that would cause a terrible reaction to doggies who are hypersensitive.
    I’m now giving my furry babies fresh vegetables like long beans and fruits like apple slices and carrot sticks for little treats instead of store purchase treats as these treats contain preservatives and colouring , and also they are fed with home cooked food like a variety of fresh vegetables, minced lean meat ( not chicken) and carefully deboned fish.
    Our pets are our responsibility and we should give them the best what we possibly can.

  39. justin cheah on Jul 28, 2012 at 2:18 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article. I didn’t know that there are so many items mentioned were not suitable at all for our dogs. Now i will be more aware on things especially for dogs. Will share this with my friends too! Thank you again.

  40. Wan Wai Meng on Jul 28, 2012 at 2:16 am

    Very good tips to keep our furry friends alive and happy. Thank you to rinpoche and the blog team.

  41. tenzin llhamo on Jul 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm

    After I read the above post, I feel guilty for giving my dogs raw egg with rice. I usually give them canned dog food and rice and once ion a while I will add raw egg with the hot rice so I don’t have to fry it as I find it oily. Daddy love to take the bones from his after meal to give to his neighbor’s dogs but he soaks and wash it beforehand so it won’t be salty. Daddy never give them chicken bones as it might choke the dogs with the sharp edge. This post is definitely an eye opener. Thank you Rinpoche for the information.

  42. Choi Sheem on Jul 27, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    Thank you so much Rinpoche, for sharing this with everyone here. Although I know dogs should not be fed chocolate, I have been feeding milk to some stray dogs and puppies. I must stop giving milk to dogs from now. My mom used to add garlic and sometimes sugar into the rice for her pet dog. She believe it will give the dog a healthy coat. How ignorant we are. Instead of doing any good, we are poisoning them. Now that we have this guide, we will stop feeding any dogs these foods.

  43. EricLee KHJB on Jul 26, 2012 at 7:49 pm

    原来这么多的东西是狗不能吃的。原以为只是不要让狗吃的太咸就可以了,直到看了仁波切这一篇post才知道原来有这么多的食物是不适合的。看了这个post后突然有个想法,己所不欲勿施于人,不要以为给狗吃我们人类吃剩的食物,对他们就是最好的。我们人总是自以为是,总是没有考虑其他人的感受,以为知己给于的,已经是很好的了,至于对方的需要,我们则没有去了解。所以,当下次有机会为别人服务时,我们应该以他的需要为主,这才是真正的帮助。

  44. sweekeong on Jul 26, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    Oh my goodness. There are so many foods dog cannot take, easily caused by poisoning, and lead to death. I would never have known about it. If we think it is better to be born a dog, think again, many foods we cannot take, and you can get easily killed from the food you take.

  45. Julia Tan on Jul 26, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this with us. This is definitely helpful to everyone. Whether we have a dog at home or not, I think it’s always good to know this common knowledge. If we care enough to protect and love our dogs or stray dogs, we have to be careful and keep this food away from them.

  46. Cynthia Ng on Jul 25, 2012 at 11:28 pm

    哇。。原来狗狗有这么多食物是不能吃的,没想到水果也会危害到它们的健康,我只听说狗狗不能吃巧克力。感谢仁波切分享,虽然我没有饲养狗狗,这对我来说是一个很好的知识,我会和朋友分享,免得因为无知而害了一条生命。

    I do not have a pet dog now but during my younger days and still living with my parents, we did have a dog. We fed our dog with leftover food including chicken bones and when our dog was a puppy we even fed him milk, chocolate and cakes. Gosh, lucky thing nothing happened to him and he died of old age.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing this information so that dog owners will be more aware of not giving these food to their dogs.

    谢谢仁波切的分享

    我只知道巧克力和盐是不可以喂给吃狗。

    哇,不只两样而已,蘑菇,水果Avocado,肉类。

    我还不知道狗有这么多东西不能吃,牛奶也不可以。

    我还给狗喝很多牛奶,我还以为给狗喝牛奶是最好的.有营养原来不是的。。。。。。

  49. cindy on Jul 25, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    Oh, yes, thank you so much for this great information. My brother take good care for his two dogs but i should also share this info with him.

  50. judy.lam@kechara.com on Jul 25, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    I didn’t know dogs cannot consume raw eggs and milk/dairy products. We have been giving our family dogs those stuff! At least we know now. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

  51. Yvonne Yap on Jul 25, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing,

    Yes, this is the things we should know, some people eat what then they will let the dog eat the same things, this is very dangerous for a dog, because dog can not talk , if the owner never observe, the will get harm.

    We should take care all the animal _/\_

  52. pat on Jul 25, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Thank you for this great info for all dogs lovers.Didn’t realise there were so many forbidden food for dogs.Only knew chocolate and salt were not allowed, usually we feed dogs with leftovers and table scraps but now we must be very careful as not to make them feel uncomfortable and suffer.

  53. wah ying on Jul 25, 2012 at 12:40 am

    I do not know avocado was hazardous to dogs, I only know chocolate and salt are the most common food should not feed to dogs.

    Other food I get from Animal websites that to be harmful (to some dogs and some not, but better to avoid) are mushroom. Actually mushroom sell on supermarket or market are not poisonous but it’s with the purpose to avoid dogs to develop the habit of eating mushroom, especially some wild mushroom which are poisonous when they come across one outside.

    Raw meat is another food to avoid. Most veterinarians don’t like it because of the toxic bacteria that is present, such as E. coli and Salmonella.

    Pork is not a meat that dogs easily digest because of its high fat, it often makes them vomit, whether cooked or raw.

    In small amounts liver is good for dogs, but if the liver intake is too high it can cause nutritional problems because liver has a high content of vitamin A. Consumption of this vitamin in large amounts can lead to vitamin A toxicity, or hypervitaminosis.

    Hot food would do harm to dogs’ nose, reduce it’s sensitivity. Too cold the food, it would hurt dogs’ stomach and cause diarrhea.

  54. Paul Yap on Jul 25, 2012 at 12:37 am

    Never though of milk will cause diarrhea and other digestive upset as well as food allergies.
    We so use to feed puppies with milk, but after reading this, no more milk for them! I hope more people read this too!

  55. lucy yap on Jul 24, 2012 at 11:30 pm

    Didn’t know there are so many foods that dogs can’t eat.The most common I know is chocolate.The only extra food I give my dogs are hard boiled eggs and apples,besides dog food/biscuits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this information to save our dogs from suffering of diarrhea,vomit and etc.We must love our dogs and treat them as part of the family.

  56. June Tang (KH-JB) on Jul 24, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this informative article,it is really help^_^ I only knew that dogs cannot eat chocolate,i just realise that many types of foods and fruits cannot feed to dogs after i read this article.I will remember and share this information to my friend whom are the dogs owner!!

  57. Lim (KH JB) on Jul 24, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    Normally we will give the dogs to eat the food we left and dog foods, but from this article we learn that there are many more foods that we should give to dogs. Thanks Rinpoche for sharing this informative article to us however whose have no dog at home, we may share this info to others.

    Sometimes we feel that give our lovely dog to eat some special food but it will get harm for them. So we must be more careful when take care of them.

  58. Low ksjc on Jul 24, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.We must be more careful when we intend to feed a stray dog the next time.In the past,we always assume that the dog stomach is much stronger then human.By looking at the list we better make sure we do not feed the dog left over mutton curry it is definitely a big NO NO .

  59. Milly on Jul 24, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    I didnt know that yeast dough, avocados, persimmons, peaches, grapes, raisins are not good for dogs. I thought that all fruits are good as contains vitamins and fibre. My dog’s vet advised not to feed chicken or beef if a dog has skin problem. To feed only lamb, salmon or duck. Perhaps dogs can also have a vegetarian diet for a healthier lifestyle. Thank you Rinpoche for your concern for all sentient beings and animals well being are also constantly in your mind.

  60. Sheryl KH (JB) on Jul 24, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    This article is informative, for it may have listed quite a number of foods that we shouldnt give to dogs.

    While I have known some foods listed here, other foods such as yeast dough and avocado surprise me.

    To keep a dog healthy, we surely have to be aware of those foods which we shouldnt give them at all, such as coke during celebrations and human medicine during emergency cases. Their bodies simply function differently from us.

    Better be careful than sorry. For organ failures or sudden sickness can easily take away the lives of our beloved pets unnexpectedly.

  61. Han on Jul 24, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this informative article, I used to give my pets some human food, and I now only aware that actually there are so many food that dogs need to avoid.
    All dogs owner really need to be extra careful and aware of all the 16 things that dog can’t eat.

  62. HelenaC on Jul 24, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    Oh dear, Din’t know so much until this post! I fed my dog milk and bread i thought it was ok. Now i know more about what not to feed them. Thank you Rinpoche for the post its really help 🙂

    Much care,
    Helena

  63. verontung on Jul 24, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing these…

    I used to scare of any dog (big or small) as bitten by dog during i was a child. But only started this year i have rescued Longlong from street. A lot of these informations i am still learning. It really gives me better understanding about what and what not to give to dog to eat. Must remember now… and always beware of these delicious food of human is a poison to our little furry kids at home!

  64. Chris Tan on Jul 24, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful for all dogs lover. So far i only know that dog cannot eat chocolate only. In fact there are so many things that dogs cannot eat. Will keep it in my mind not letting my pets eat all the food mention above.

    Sometimes we wont notice that they eat these food if we didnt keep all these food properly. Have to keep awareness to store our food where the dogs can reach.

  65. Sofi on Jul 24, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    My goodness, I have given my dogs some of those stated above. Avocado and garlic. Thought those are good for them. Thanks Rinpoche for this timely posting. I think its an eye opener for many dog owners as well.

  66. Mei Fong on Jul 24, 2012 at 11:40 am

    OMG!! My dog will eat up anything that is dropped on the floor by accident. I will need to be careful about this. Sometimes its hard to prevent since he is super quick and swift in getting the food. There was once he nearly eat a whole loaf of bread which he manage to cause it to fall off the dining table. For those that allow their dog to do strolls by themselves outside in the evening are very dangerous as they are exposed to people who might not have knowledge about this and might even provide the doggies with their leftover food which normally is cooked with onions and garlic.

  67. Jace Chong on Jul 24, 2012 at 11:35 am

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing these.

    Omg! I should bear in mind not to give all these food to doggies! Sometimes, when we have extra fruits at home, we just cut and feed them, now have to remind myself fruits like avocado, grapes, persimmons, peaches and plum are not the right food the give them.

    But raw egg can save a dog life according to Dr.Hank, a veterinary. I used to have a dog in my house, we will let the dog go out and have a walk by himself in the evening and he will come back by himself around 1 hour. One day, the dog came back and start vomiting, after a while he started to choke. He must had eaten something poisonous outside. We were so worried but we did not know what to do. The dog died, it was so sad for us.

    After that I called Dr.Hank, he told me I should break a raw egg and force to the dog mouth. As the raw egg is sticky, it will stick all the things that stuck in his throat, he will throw out everything. This could save his life.

    I hope dog owners can also bear in mind that this could help during the emergency.

    • Amber on Sep 3, 2013 at 2:08 am

      Specifically dogs cannot have raw egg whites. Yolks are good for them. If I bake with egg whites, I mix the remaining yolks into my dog’s food. There is a chemical in egg whites that binds to a B vitamin and minerals that make the dog (or human) unable to absorb them.

    Ji Gong the mad monk is a very famous figure in Chinese folklore. Even though he is a monk, he doesn’t live in the monastery, he was always wandering around wearing a very old and torn monk’s robe, he looks dirty and crazy. He also likes to eat meat and drink alcohol. However, he is always helping people without wanting anything back in return. The way he carries himself is very similar to the Indian Mahasiddhas. Read more about his life story, it is very interesting.

    If we care about our body and health, we should take on a vegetarian diet. It is scientifically proven that eating meat will increase the chances of getting heart disease and cancer. There are many benefits when we take on a vegetarian diet. To name a few, we can reduce inflammation on our body, our blood cholesterol levels will plummet, we can reduce the chances of getting type 2 diabetes.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this short biography of a greatmaster. Khedrup Gelek Pelzang, 1st Panchen Lama – better known as Khedrup Je – was one of the main disciples of Je Tsongkhapa. He became a monk at an early age and studied under great masters. He taught extensively, gave many initiations, and guided many renowned scholars at that time. He is considered to be the First Panchen Lama and was an incarnation of Amitabha Buddha. He wrote an important text on Kalachakra initiation which is still used by Tenzin Gyatso, HH the 14th Dalai Lama. . Amazing , he wrote many prayer books and his collected works total nine volumes in all.

    Lhawang Chokyi Gyeltsen was the first member of the lineage, born to a noble family. At a young boy ,he had a strong desire to become a monk, even composing a letter in verse to his parents, expressing his desire to ordain. He became a monk at an early age, and studied under great scholars. At the age of fourteen Chokyi Gyeltsen was recognized as the reincarnation of Baso Chokyi Gyeltsen. He did received numerous teachings from many great teachers, lamas and he even studied sutra and tantra under them including the Third Dalai Lama.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting read.

    Buddhist art has a rich and intricate tradition of expressing the divine iconography of awakened beings. They are not just beautiful works of art but contain powerful symbolism and are representations of the stages of an awakened mind. Therefore, they serve not just to entice our senses but also to invoke the presence of these awakened beings, empower our meditations and plant powerful blessings into our mind stream. The e-books featured below contain a treasure house of precious knowledge about Buddhist art, iconography, pantheons of deities and so forth. These e-books serve to guide people in their artistic representations of the divine and also in personal practice. I hope you enjoy reading them and come back to them again and again in your study of Buddhist iconography.~Tsem Rinpoche

    The most famous Vajrayogini pilgrimage site I think is in Nepal. Tsem Rinpoche has written many articles about Vajrayogini in Nepal. But did you know in India, there are also a few Vajrayogini temples? One of them is the sixty-four yogini temple in Hirapur, Odisha. It is a very ancient temple for people to worship the yogini.

    I don’t know much about Vajrayogini until I came across one of Rinpoche’s blog post “Starting On Vajra Yogini NOW!” 2 years ago. Since then, I paid more attention to read and understand the posts that related to Vajrayogini.

    Vajrayogini practice is considered the most suitable for people of these degenerate times due to the stronger desire. And Vajrayogini has ability to transform desire energy into enlightened virtue. That is most encouraging and inspiring when Vajrayogini appeared to HH Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and promised him that those who received Vajra Yogini practice from him, and inclusive of the following 4 generations, would be taken to Kechara Paradise within 7 lifetimes. From here we can see Vajrayogini is so compassionate and wanting us to be free from suffering soonest possible. Of course, we should not forget our precious guru in this spiritual path. Without our guru, we may not have opportunity to learn and practice dharma. Without our guru, we know nothing about Vajrayogini and her sacred practice.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful post that let me develop a strong faith in Vajrayogini. ��

    Human is the biggest destroyer of our living environment. In the process of development, many trees are cut down and the wildlife animals lost their habitat. Eventually, the wildlife animals extinct and the weather becomes warmer as the eco-system is disturbed. It is a good news to know that India in planting more than 66 million trees in 12 hours to try to save our planet from human destruction.

    When disasters strike, it is normal that we will be running for our lives, leaving for a safer place. When we are running for our lives, are we also taking our pets with us? When the flood happened in Houston, Texas, many pet dogs and cats were tied up and left behind to die, this is extremely cruel.

    The 17th Karmapa escaped from China and went to India thinking he could learn the Buddhist doctrine from qualified masters. However, this was not the case as these qualified masters are not easily accessible. He has expressed his disappointment and frustration in a video he has recorded. The 17th Karmapa was sad because he could not do what he is supposed to do, i.e. to teach Dharma. It is sad to know a high lama like him is not able to do Dharma work as much as he wants to.

    Pastor Antoinette Kass first came to Malaysia all the way from half a globe away – Luxembourg to meet His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche in 2011, after getting know and learning Dharma from Rinpoche just from online resources (Youtube, blog, Facebook…). She has always been spiritual and had visited places like Findhorn in search of spirituality. On the first meeting, Rinpoche had a nice chat with her and presented her a Vajrayogini statue to encourage her in the Dharma path.

    She did not have personal contact with Rinpoche after that, and yet from that single meeting of just one hour and her promise to Rinpoche to do more Dharma, she has been keeping her promise and is very consistent about it. Since then, she has been coming back to Malaysia yearly to volunteer and learn in Kechara (most of the time did not have the opportunity to meet Rinpoche), and lately made plans to relocate to Malaysia so that she can pursue her Dharma aspirations full-time.

    凡人和圣人的差别就在这里。凡人遇到了苦难,他对自己说,我必须发奋图强,不再让自己过这种艰苦的生活!于是他真的努力了,为生活打拼,最终成功了,丰衣足食,从此过着无忧无虑的生活。但他所改善的,只是他自己一个人的生活。

    而圣人呢,他遇到苦难时,他会对自己说,这种饥饿的感觉,流浪街头的感觉,身体有病痛却没钱看病的感觉,生活苦迫煎熬的感觉,我自己经历了,非常难受,我发愿不要让任何人,任何众生,经历同样的痛苦!

    每一次的轮回转世,詹杜固仁波切都发愿再来娑婆世界帮助最需要他的人。这样的愿力,造就了詹杜固仁波切的一颗金刚菩提心,让他永远都能用无量的慈悲去帮助和渡化众生。

    This is a miraculous White Tara statue from the Majapahit empire in Indonesia. The statue was made 800 years ago and its was hidden in a well with gold and silver as offerings. When it was discovered and being owned by a collector named Yan, two lamas wanted to bless it. It was Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje, who is a Bhutanese oracle for the deity Tsiu Marpo (In Gelug tradition: Kache Marpo), and Lama Rangbar Nyimai Ozer, the founder and President of the Bodhivastu Foundation in the United States. During the blessing ceremony, there are miracles manifested and realise that this white tara statue is a terma. Lama Chokyong Yeshi Dorje saw a mantra from the back of the statue and wrote it down.

    This image, shot by photographer Ding Zuhe and called, “Monk’s Posture,” won first prize in the China category for National Geographic’s 2017 photography contest. Here are six people, all in some form of sleep, lethargy, stupor, or unconsciousness. There are two women (the one in the foreground looks older), and four males: a child in the foreground, a teen or young adult to the far left, and a young man plus a slightly older one in the right corner. Ding leaves open to interpretation how they feel; for all we know they might be comfortable. However, it doesn’t look like as if they are. Then we have the monk: sitting in a classical Zen posture, his head slightly bowed, cross-legged, dignified, a noble contrast to the six sloppy engines of flesh splayed out around him.

    The current form of Naro Kachö Vajra Yogini appeared to the Indian Mahasiddha Naropa after he meditated intensely on her practice inside a cave. He beheld her glorious form in a vision. This unique form later became known as Naropa’s Vajra Yogini or Naro Kachö, as it had never existed before. Later, in Tibet, His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche also had visions of Vajra Yogini. His vision differed slightly from the vision of her that Naropa beheld. In the original Naro Kachö form, Vajra Yogini looks towards her pure land named Kechara. However in Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s vision, she looked straight at him, symbolic of the deity empowering him to bestow her practice onto many people in order to benefit them. The practice of Vajra Yogini belongs to the Highest Yoga Tantra classification that leads to tremendous inner transformation and can even grant Enlightenment within just one lifetime.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche

In 1989, Bill Porter, also known by his pen name ‘Red Pine’, travelled to the Zhongnan Mountains in China to meet some of these hermits and learn about their way of life. This resulted in his publishing the work titled Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits in 1993. 25 years later, Bill Porter travelled back to the same mountains to see if life there had changed. The outcome of this particular trip was a documentary titled Hermit, about a modern-day journey into the heart of the hermit tradition in China. This is a must watch documentary with so much to learn to enhance our lives which will give us hope as we are all drowning in materialism’s false promises.~Tsem Rinpoche Fantastic and profound documentary: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/?p=163457
Wrathful Dakini Ucchusma-In the form of wrathful dakini, Ucchusma has 3 eyes; with both hands holding a vase with nectar at her heart level, her hair loose, and no ornaments. She wears a garment of black silk, with two legs, feet together, standing on a lotus and sun disc. This deity functions to remove negative energy and pollutions from body, speech and mind. The practice was conferred by a Dakini to Drupangsa. -Mantra: Om ar-kham zir-kam bu-ma-na-se ou-cus-ha-ma ma-ha tro-da hung phet

Stunning photo of offerings on my shrine photographed by Victor Choi. The lighting is beautiful. Offerings of food, fruits, drinks, flowers and incense are made on my shrine daily. For me the shrine is a portal to the Enlightened Beings and connecting to their blessings. Blessings to accomplish positive things in my life for others and myself. We do need this connection very much in our unpredictable lives where can experience so much anxiety, pain and a feeling of senselessness. We should never lose our connection to the Enlightened Beings and be firm about it. We will eventually need them no matter how \'good\' things seem now. Today this photograph taken is beautiful and I wanted to share it. 

May everyone who visit my page here be blessed, your obstacles cleared, be healthy and have a long life.~Tsem Rinpoche

We have to discipline ourselves in order that our mind can allow the Buddha Dharma to take root. When it takes root, our lives will change for the better. What we perceive in the world around us is dependent on the attitude within us. Never give up improving on ourselves because that is the true road to peace and happiness. We are worth it. Others are worth seeing us in our best.~ Tsem Rinpoche

I am in love with only you my Adamantine Lady of Coral hue. I am in love of liberation, freedom and wisdom I seek in you. Even to whisper your name Vajra Yogini excites me to the core of my soul. I have been away for so long and I wonder when I can join my supreme mother in Akanishta. My love for you has no end and it only grows. My mind is focused on you daily and my heart only awaits for you to place sindura on my crown soon. Nothing I have seen or experienced in this deceitful world can remotely compare with you my dear wisdom lady. Please with supreme sound of damarus, cymbals, incense and voices of sunyata, embrace me to ascend amidst rainbow lights effortlessly to my home.  My true home where you will bring me. Bring me home soon. In my heart only lies you. In your heart I know I am existent also. We are one.~ Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

We have many outdoor sacred images of various Buddhas. The ones that were visited were Tsongkapa, Nageshvaraja, Loma Gyoma, Tara, Nagarakshasa and then back to Tsongkapa. At each location circumambulations and lamp offerings were done. We walked the vast land while chanting Migtseyma mantras. The very elderly followed to each location in cars. Kechara Forest retreat is 70 acres of land located in rural Bentong, one hour from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. ~Tsem Rinpoche For more information: www.tsemrinpoche.com
