Did you know some human foods are toxic to dogs?  I honestly didn't know most of these when I was a dog owner, so I thought I'd pass along the information from Battersea and the ASPCA, just in case I'm not the only one.

Who knew this was so toxic? Alcohol can cause vomiting, diarrhea, decreased coordination, central nervous system depression, difficulty breathing, tremors,  coma and death. It's recommended that you call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center if your dog gets into the alcohol.

Onions, Garlic and Chives

No matter if it's cooked or raw, these can cause gastrointestinal irritation and red blood cell damage.


Most of us know this.  The darker the chocolate, the worse it is for your pet. It can cause kidney failure.

Macadamia Nuts, Almonds, Pecans, and Walnuts

I'm surprised this is an issue, I've never seen a dog eat any kind of nut.  It can affect their nervous system and muscles, cause pancreatitis, diarrhea, or vomiting.

Grapes and Raisins

They can cause kidney failure.

Corn on the Cob

The cob can actually kill your dog by blocking the intestine.

Salt and Salty Snacks

Chips or other salty foods can cause vomiting, diarrhea, tremors, high temperature, seizures and death.

XYLITOL, an Artificial Sweetener

Ingesting this can cause liver failure and blood clotting disorders.  The article said to be careful about peanut butter because some contain this sweetener.

Yeast Dough

Can cause your dog's stomach to bloat and maybe even twist which is life threatening.  Raw bread dough can actually make your dog drunk.
