20th April 2007, 04:47 AM
anyone know where i could find a decent list of which foods are toxic for dogs online??? i know some, like chocolate, onions, etc. and i know sugary, greasy, salty foods aren't good (just like they are not good for us) but i am looking for a good list. i didn't know that some dogs couldn't have grapes until i read it here today (and to think i tried to give my b/f's chihuahua a grape last night, but she wasn't interested, EEP! could have been bad) i think that supplementing a dog's diet with a variety of healthy "treats" is a good idea but i want to make sure i don't accidentally give something bad. thanks oodles for any help!

Here are some



It pays to cross reference a bit because there are some lists out there that are really extreme & make some wild claims about what is toxic. I think if you look at say half dozen lists & they have foods in common then they are the ones to avoid. If a food item comes up on just one of those lists, then I'd be looking into it further before taking it as gospel. Do a big of a Google... you'll find many, many pages.

Many of the things on lists are only toxic in very large quantities, so no need to panic if a dog gets a tiny bit, though the size of a dog has to be considered. A quantity which would harm a chihuahua would probably have no effect on a Dane.

This is not just my opinion. It was given by a vet.
