I got this list from: http://www.cynadohavanese.com/

I've been looking for this so thought that maybe some of you might want to know.....

There are a number of foods we humans eat that can be quite toxic to our canine companions.

Please be aware this is only a partial list of foods & symptoms. This list is provided for your perusal, and is in no way meant to offer medical advice.

If you believe your dog has been subjected to food toxins, please call your veterinarian immediately!!!

Almond Pit contains cyanide. Can be fatal. *Remember, dogs do not know to stop eating at the pit.
Animal Fat Excessive fat can cause Pancreatitis.
Apple Pit contains cyanide. Can be fatal.
Apricot Pit contains cyanide. Can be fatal.
Avocados Fruit, Pit, and plant are all toxic!! Can cause respiratory problems as well as fluid accumulation in the head, chest, and abdomen.

Good to know - raisins and grapes are big one as they can cause acute renal failure and death ..
Also there are also plants you need to be aware of . Lillies is one of them so keep your Easter lillies away from your dogs or maybe better yet do not buy them at all ..

Here's a list I found of toxic plants done by the ASPCA.

We're in the process of replacing many of the plants we had landscaped with before Shadow came to live with us. We're using "dog friendly" ones. Here's the link to those.

I'm just curios about the garlic because there are recipes out there for dog cookies and they say to add garlic powder to it. Now, if garlic is toxic, what about the powder? Is that different in any other way than the fact that it is powdered?

Garlic

Helen, i asked about the garlic too as it is in a lot of dog food. It is also thought to be a natural flea and tick repellant. the answer I found - was that garlic is Ok in small amounts is Ok - that it would take 50 cloves of garlic in one sitting to cause any harm . Here's an article, it happens to be from the pet food I am currently using- but I had read it other places too. (http://beowulfs.com/)

Thanks for the lists all.




Missy, Jasper & Cash
