    I think your dog would need to eat an awful lot of grapes for it to cause a problem

    My 'Keesie' had a liking for Cherry Tomatos and Strawberrys.... We had to eventually fence off the vegi patch.. I wonder if it was the colour 'RED' that attracted her attention..
    'Kosmo' liked eating passionfruit off the vine..

    Havent been here for a while, so I feel a bit giving my 10 cents worth, but I found this Dangerous foods for Dogs - Dog Articles - Dogs.com.au that has a few other "poisonous" things for dogs.......macadamia nuts for instance???

    Both our dogs love grapes and 'tanies, will drool pools while Im eating them. Poor things.

    My dogs have always had dried fruit, usually dates - VERY traditional Saluki and Afghan food! But figs, sultanas and raisins as well...

    Guess we'll have to stick to dates and figs from now on!

    How would it be that the toxicity has only been noticed since the late '80's? Better diagnosis perhaps? Or something else...? From reading about it no-one seems to have put a finger on it. Very strange.

    I know of chocolate, onions and tomato being bad.

    We used to give Axle grapes, he would play with them until they were a soggy lump, then he would eat them! But since the Vet told us not to give him grapes, we stopped feeding them too him, he doesn't seem to miss them! But he loves other fruits! He will eat mango, banana, apple and orange!

    Oh, and on the beer topic, my old Jack Russell used to like drinking beer, but when my brother had his 21st, every one was feeding her beer until she was drunk Poor thing.

    Foods that we forbid to feed the dogs are grapes, sultana's, macadamia nuts, chocolate and beer! Pretty much everything that everyone else has said!

    It's soo confusing.
    I never knew about pork untill I did a roast and fed Falcon the leftovers...he spewed it up and had the runs for the next day! When I mentioned this to others...they all said the same thing....dogs shouldn't have pork

    But then...why is pig ears and trotters ok? Maybe it's how it's cooked?? I have always given the dogs and cats the bacon rine too...they love it and it doesn't affect them like the roast did.

    I did google it...but it was all 50/50...some say yes, some say no...soo conclusion is.... lol

    Candy is a pigging dog...she's bred to sink her teeth into some pork!!!! LOL

    As far as know, pigs can share some parasites with dogs, so pig offal is a big no-no. I don't know about pork muscle meat though, and pork is quite prevalent in commercial dog treats like you said...
