    Rocky, some things I would definitely avoid are onions, grapes, raisins, raw tomatoes, apple seeds and chocolate. There are probably many more but they're what i springing to mind. I often give Sally chunks of carrot to eat or a slice of apple without the pips as a treat. I think the mince should be ok to add to his food as long as you reduce some of the dried food accordingly so that he doesn't get too much. You will get plenty more info of other members too. Hope this helps

    I think tomatoes are Ok, in fact I have to double fence my cherry tomatoes b'cuz of dog thieves and so I really researched their relationship with canines. Their stems and leaves are not OK.
