- Coffee (all forms)
- Fatty foods
- Macadamia nuts
- Moldy or spoiled foods
- Onions, onion powder

This list is based on the Animal Poison Controls list of death and illness in pets

Sugarless candies can also be toxic to pets

Have first hand experience with macadamia nuts and dogs.   ::)   Although I believe no dogs have ever died from eating them, it does affect their muscle coordination for some time.  I thought Emmett had torn another ligament when he could not move his back legs one morning to go outside. Could not even stand up without a towel to help him.  After going to the emergency vet (of course it was a Sunday morning) and bringing him back home with the plan to see a specialist during the week I came home to find Briona acting squirrely too.  I knew they had eaten a whole jar of macs the night before but was not aware how they could affect them (Addie appeared fine, she must not have been fast enough gobbling them up!)  So back to the emerg vet I went with both Briona and Emmett to get charcoal.  I questioned what good was that going to do since it had been probably over 10-12 hours and would have moved through their stomach by now, but they said do it anyways (a Great Dane has to take a LOT of charcoal btw!).  Researching later on I saw I was right that it was too late for the charcoal and that there was no known deaths or lasting affects from eating them.  They were pretty twitchy the whole day, Emmett was the worst.  Either he was more reactive to them or for once he beat the others to the goodies!!  ;D

And those macs came right from Hawaii!!   >:(  So not only did they cost me a good vet bill, but they ate my macs!!!   >:(

We learned about the grapes a few years ago after we bought our house with the huge grape vine in the yard.  We fed the dogs a bunch of grapes and the next day when I got home from work...let's just say I headed to Wallyworld for gloves, sponges and disinfectant.   >:(

Interesting.  I wonder if there's been any link to peanuts like the macadamia.

Awhile back, I gave our dog a peanut & he was acting up & not feeling good.  I thought just (1) peanut should have not made him feel ill.  Anyways, he puked (a bunch of bile) with one little peanut i the middle.  Right after that, he was 100%.

Last tuesday I was up late & having a few peanuts.  He was begging like he always does & I gave him a 'few'.  The next morning, he couldn't stand on his left front leg.  He was hobbling around like an old man all day & would just sleep.  He showed no interest in anything but he did force himself to get up when it was time to eat. 

The following day...he was 90% better & the day after that...he acted like there was noooo problem ever.

So...now I am thinking he may be highly allergic to peanuts.  His sister shows no signs when I gave her some too.

What about peanut butter? My kids always give our dog peanut butter and seems to be fine.

from what i read...peanut butter is fine.

I'm thinking my dog may have suffered from an obscure allergic reaction

I know most dogs LOVE beer, but as far as I know it's a NO NO.  There's "doggy beer" available out there.

 ;D

I could have sworn i saw a program where a vet said it was ok, possibly good, to give dogs some beer.

I don't really give Dakota much anyway. Good to know, though.....

Though the breeder told us to give him garlic with dinner when we first got him. Weird.  :-\

I give my dog garlic twice a week but the links posted said garlic is bad for dogs. My dog has not had any side affects from garlic so what gives?

Is garlic in or out for Fido?

I've heard conflicting stories on garlic too ~ but it is in the onion family so...  ???  I tried to call into the vet on public radio today with that exact question (re: beer, garlic, etc.), but I didn't get on.  She won't be on til next month now  :-\  I guess I would err on the side of caution.

Putzi gets hardly any snacks - if so it's a pig's ear or just a regular dog snack.

garlic is actually a natural wormer and antibiotic.

n-propyldisulfide, found in onions and in less quantity in garlic is toxic for dogs.
you will need a large dose of garlic for it to be toxic.

you can give some to your dog 3-4 times a week.

10 to 15 pounds dog: half a clove per day
20 to 40 pounds: 1 clove
45 to 70 pounds: 2 cloves
75 to 90 pounds: 2,5 cloves
100 pounds and over: 3 cloves

to avoid anemia, no garlic at least one day per week and stop completely for 1-2 weeks every once in a while

I bought some "Oreo" style cookies for our dogs at the pet store. They are from Three Dog Bakery. They're made with carob and all natural ingredients. They pretty much look like an Oreo cookie. I can tell you the pups go nuts for them.

Dog Owners Beware: FDA Warns Against Deadly Ingredient More Harmful Than Chocolate
Andrea Huspeni
May 16, 2016
No Comments

While chocolate has received the most attention for its deadly effect on dogs, another ingredient is gaining momentum.

The FDA has just published a strong warning about xylitol, an ingredient that experts believe is 100 times more harmful than chocolate, The Wall Street Journal reports. The artificial sweetener is found in many food items and household products, including Chewing gum, sugar-free candy, breath mints, baked goods, cough syrup, mouthwash, chewable vitamins, some nut butters and toothpaste.

Dogs have an adverse reaction to the ingredient because of its impact on the pancreas. A pupís blood sugar levels are controlled by the release of insulin from the pancreas. Xylitol triggers the rapid release of insulin in dogs causing the dogís blood sugar to drop dramatically, resulting in hypoglycemia. If left untreated, a dog can die.


Symptoms of xylitol poisoning include vomiting, followed by decrease in a dogís activity, weakness, wobbliness, loss of coordination and seizures.

If you think your dog ingested xylitol take him to the vet immediately. It can take up to 12 to 24 hours for the full effects to occur, so your pup may need to be monitored.

To prevent this life-threatening situation, owners should read labels and keep anything with xylitol away from their dog.

The FDA warning comes after poison-control centers have seen an increase in dog deaths and illnesses after dogs ingested xylitol.
