2  Hello my name is Geovana Villa I am a senior at Carl Wunsche Sr. High School in the Veterinary Science pathway.  I chose this topic to help bring awareness to dog owners and innovate a fun and understanding lesson plan.  After high school I plan to attend Lone Star College-North Harris were I will get my basics. After finishing my basics I plan to attend Texas Women's University where I will major in neonatal nursing.

3  Dogs are being treated more and more as a part of the family. Because of this it becomes more assessable for dogs to consume what they please without the owner knowing it can harm them.

4  Less and less dog owners are aware of what human foods are toxic to their dog therefore unintentionally feeding them something toxic.

5  Toxic: of, pertaining to, affected with, or caused by a toxin or poison

6  Chocolate  Grapes and Raisins  Xylitol  Macadamia Nuts  Onions and Garlic  Uncooked bread/Yeast

7  Chocolate contains theobromine.  Theobromine is a bitter compound that comes from cacao seeds. It is a organic compound of plant origin that produces physiological actions in humans known as methylxanthine.

8  Methylxanthine is much like caffeine in that it’s similar to its physiological effects but in a much smaller scale. This substance is found in chocolate.  Dogs metabolize theobromine much slower than humans which effects the heart, kidneys, and central nervous system.

9  Vomiting  Hyperactivity  Restlessness  Elevated heart rate  Elevated blood pressure  Abnormal heart rhythm's  Hyperthermia  Seizures  Collapse

10  The reason behind there toxicity is unknown.

11  Vomiting  Diarrhea  Abnormal drinking  Lethargy  Dehydration  Kidney failure

12  Xylitol is a natural sugar free sweetener found in gum, mints, sugarless candy, toothpaste, oral rinses, and sugar free multivitamins.  Xylitol is found in plants that can be supplemented to replace sugar.  If consumed it can cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).

13  Signs and symptoms that a dog has consumed xylitol include: › Vomiting › Seizures › Lethargy › Collapse › Weakness › Trembling › Coma

14  The reason behind macadamia nuts toxicity to dogs is unknown.

15  Signs and symptoms that a dog has consumed macadamia nuts include: › Weakness › Depression › Vomiting › Hyperthermia

16  Onions and garlic can cause Heinz body anemia resulting in a breakdown of red blood cells composed of damaged hemoglobin an iron that transports oxygen to the rest of the body.

17  Signs and symptoms that a dog has consumed onions or garlic include: › Vomiting › Diarrhea › Anemia › Discolored urine › Weakness › Liver damage › Allergic reaction

18  Uncooked dough rests in the stomach, expands, and causes the stomach to bloat which can lead to gastric dilatation volvulus. (twisted stomach).  Unbaked dough (yeast) is fermented which results in carbon dioxide, causing bloat.

19  Alcohol from the fermented yeast is rapidly absorbed in the blood stream resulting in alcohol poisoning.  Ingestion of alcohol can cause drops in low blood sugar, blood pressure, and body temperature.

20  Signs and symptoms that a dog has consumed uncooked bread/ dough or yeast include: › Drooling › Retching › Vomiting › Extended stomach/twisted stomach › Hypotension › Hyperthermia › Elevated heart rate › Weakness

21  Create a comprehensive and innovative lesson plan that will teach young children ages four and up what foods are toxic to their dog.

22  This will help them remember at an early age what toxins are harmful and help keep less dogs in vet clinics.

23  Create a song with a familiar rhythm but changing the lyrics to include what human foods will harm their pet.  I will make sure to cover all three different learning styles. Kinesthetic, Auditory, and Visual.

24  Children will memorize this and grow up more knowledge filled about what is toxic to their dog, and what it does to them.

25  Using the same rhythm as the song ‘If you're happy and you know it’ (a familiar children's song), but changed the lyrics to include the toxins harmful to dogs.  This will help them known and memorize what toxins not to feed their dog.
