    PS tea {and honey} contain a natural antiseptic - with tea, it's tannin - so there are times it's useful - just go for the decaffeinated ones!

    Also, avoid nuts:

    Walnuts are poisonous to dogs and should be avoided. In particular,
    there is a type of fungus common to walnuts (especially wet deadfall
    walnuts) that will cause severe episodes of seizuring. Many nuts are
    not good for dogs in general, their high phosphorous content is said
    to possibly lead to bladder stones."

    Dogs can't seem to digest them anyway.

    OK I'll shut up now!

    Wonderful! Very helpful. Of course, I'm learning more everyday. He tried a sardine cake (a recipe I may have gotten from this site) last night and absolutely hated it! He barked at me!! Well, can't win 'em all! I gave him a little kibble mixed with chicken livers and hearts and wrapped it up with a pork neck bone. Going day by day. The guy is not really a picky eater, but seems to be becoming one. He seems to prefer the dog food (and cheese and strawberries and of course the pork neck). I couldn't believe he turned up his nose at the sardine concoction!
