5 Superbowl foods that can kill your pets!

If you are having a Super Bowl party  and you have pets, there are some foods that can be very dangerous to them according to Pet MD

1. Alcohol.

Just a few ounces of beer or another alcoholic drink can cause ethanol poisoning in dogs and cats.

Signs of poisoning include peeing themselves, hypothermia, slowed breathing, and even heart attacks.

Caffeinated drinks can cause restlessness, breathing issues, heart palpitations, and muscle tremors.

3. Chicken wings.

The bones can cause choking or intestinal obstruction, but the salt is bad for them too. Just one wing has the daily recommended amount of sodium for a 20-pound dog. And too much salt can cause high blood pressure and contribute to kidney and heart disease.

4. Chocolate.

They have to eat a lot of it, but there’s something in chocolate called theobromine that’s poisonous to dogs and cats. And it’s in stuff like brownies and cookies too. Chocolate poisoning can cause heart arrhythmias, muscle tremors, and seizures.
