    The problem with pork is that it's hard to digest.

    How about tomatoes? I remember hearing they were poisonous to dogs but I cannot find anything to back it.. Anybody know anything about this?

    I'm relieved that a little cooked onion in stew or casserole is ok- Holly has had it that way a handful of times (usually at my mums; I'm mean and feed her dried) with no ill effects. Oddly, I've noticed that sweetcorn- even cooked sweetcorn- does not seem to be well digested and in some cases even causes the runs.

    corn comes back out the way it goes in.. It makes dogs POOP lots too. Avi fed Kosmo about 1/4 of an ear of corn one night and I could have killed him as Kos pooped 3 times during that morning walk. A lot of "commercial" brand dog foods make dogs poop a LOT because the first few ingredients are corn corn corn (good filler, right?) wrong!

    I would not purposely feed a dog onion under any circumstances. Why take a chance - onion is toxic to dogs!

    Way back when, when I didn't know better, I would give my dogs (not my cavaliers) each a grape if I was eating a bunch. My one dog, a blue heeler mix would have so much fun tossing that grape around, playing with it almost like a toy. My other dog, a springer mix would snarf hers down so fast. They never got more than one or two at a time so I guess it was not enough to cause them any problems. A woman at a garden store was trying to convince me to plant some grape vines in my backyard. When I told her that I had dogs (my cavaliers) and I didn't want them eating the fruit because it was toxic, she was dumbfounded. She said her lab ate grapes in her backyard all the time without any problem. I don't know how well her luck has held out. Monty accidently got some chocolate covered raisins. He got sick to his stomach. He threw up a few times. I was out of town at the time. It wasn't until later that we discovered what he had eaten. Monty is his own worse enemy. I do my very best to keep bad things away from my pups.

    Just as a point of information: these are not actually things dogs are allergic to but rather things that are poisonous to dogs -- I think that is what you mean?

    I have a link with lots of info in the Library section as well.
