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 ..

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.
