Dangerous Food

Okay- so... with three boys in the house- we sometimes drop food on the floor. We scramble like mad men to get the food before Zeplin does. Can someone list dangerous foods that we know we have to be more careful about? I hate to panic the kids everytime they drop something. I know chocolate and grapes are no nos.

Also- what are some foods that Havenese can eat? he eats his dry kibble- although sometimes i do try and treat him with some chicken or turkey which he always goobles up. he once got half a hotdog that rolled off a plate and devored it in less then 10 seconds. This morning he tried to grab some scrambled eggs that dropped- can he eat those? My 7 yr old made a flying leap to grab the eggs because we did not know if the yolk or whites could hurt him.

I know this sounds very silly- but any advice appreciated!

There was a thread where someone posted foods that were highly toxic for dogs, you could also Google it. We give our dogs boiled chicken and an occasional bit of carrot or cheese to take medicine but they don't get any other people food.

Sugarless gum and mints that contain Xylitol can kill a small dog, even in very small amounts so warn your kids to be very careful!!!

Anything containing Xylitol which means almost all diet foods. Even natural fruits have Xylitol in them, so just be careful. There have been many threads about this so it would probably be a good idea to do a search or do like Ann says and google it. For example chocolate, raisens, etc......I can't recall all of them off the top of my head.

On one thread about the danger of onions, Paradise Havs once posted a link, http://www.vetinfo.com/dtoxin.html, that contained a list. I try to stick to dog food and treats with the occasional boiled chicken, as it's hard to tell what kind of dangerous spices like onion powder could be in the food. I have learned so much by reading these threads - never knew grapes or raisons or onions were bad. I had only heard about chocolate.

Scambled eggs are fine, Dexter loves them.

Be VERY careful when you are getting your medicines out because if you drop one pill, your Hav will grab the medicine like lightning. Stay very close to the counter tops when getting medications, so the counter can catch anything you might drop.

Teaching your dog LEAVE IT could save it's life and only takes a couple minutes a day to train. One of the Hotlines might have a column I wrote about it.....or maybe a back issue of the Havanese Horizons? I THINK I wrote it for one of them
There's a page on my website with toxic foods and plants at:
http://jashavanese.net/plantsfoods.html
I tried to copy it to put here and that didn't work

Don't forget about checking your houseplants also. Pixie nibbled on a rhododendron leaf when she was a small puppy and was fine, but I had no idea it was poisonous. LOTS of plants, both inside and out are dangerous if your dog decides to chew on them. I think they should put warnings on the plant tag, but they don't (I suppose it would hinder sales).

I seriously am like a crazed person when doing this! I have thought about the possiblity over and over as both dh and I take meds daily. And one son has migraines and takes children motrin- which smells oh so yummy- so I am sure he would gobble that up in a second!
