Doggie No-No List

* Alcoholic Beverages
* Avacados (skin and pits) - causes difficulty breathing and fluid accumulation in the lungs and heart. The fruit, pit and plant are toxic.
* Chocolate (all forms) - causes seizures, coma and death. Baker’s chocolate is the most toxic.
* Coffee and Tea (all forms) - foods and drinks containing caffeine cause similar symptoms as chocolate ingestion.
* Fatty Foods - causes pancreatitis.
* Macadamia Nuts and Walnuts - Macadamia nuts can cause weakness, muscle tremor and paralysis. Limit all other nuts as they are not good for dogs in general, their high phosphorous content is said to possibly lead to bladder stones. Exception to this rule seems to be PEANUT BUTTER.
* Moldy or Spoiled foods
* Onions, Onion Powders - destroys red blood cells and may cause anemia.
* Raisins and Grapes - causes liver damage/failure. As little as a single serving can kill a dog.
* Salt - excessive consumption causes kidney problems.
* Yeast Dough - expands several times its original size in the stomach. Especially dangerous to dogs prone to bloat.
* Green Tomatoes - can cause tremors and heart arrhythmia. The plant is more toxic than the fruit, though all should be avoided. This is a member of the nightshade family.
* Pits (apple/cherry/peach) - contain cyanide. The fleshy part of the fruit however is good for them.
* Garlic - excessive amounts
* Products sweetened with xylatol - causes liver failure.
