I think perhaps we should make a list of all the common food items that are dangerous to dogs and add it to the memories for easy access. i found some, if anyone knows if any others, please post them. obviously, we should all know by now that dogs should not drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, or consume bleach and stuff like that, so lets keep the list to food items only.


Avocado
Broccoli (in large amounts)
Chocolate (the darker it is, the more dangerous it is)
Coffee grounds, beans & tea (caffeine)
Fatty foods
Garlic (in large quantities)
Hops (used in home brewing)
Macadamia Nuts
Onions
Pear pips, the kernels of plums, peaches and apricots, apple core pips (contain cyanogenic glycosides resulting in cyanide posioning)
Potato peelings and green looking potatoes
Products sweetened with xylitol
Raisins and grapes
Rhubarb leaves
Salt
Tomato leaves & stems (green parts)
Yeast dough

some of those aren't that common to me (hops, rhubarb leaves) but they may be common to someone else so i think its important to list it.


i know joey made a PSA about grapes and macadamia nuts a while back. perhaps he or bentley or another dog that is crafty in photoshop can make a cute graphic with the finished list so we can post it in the info (instead of in the memories where it might be forgotten)?
