    I do find that a small amount can lead to deadly farts.

    We had an aussie terror who ate about half a football full of truffles and the lid of the football - easter chocolate, and then spent the next couple of hours making brown vomit puddles around the house and yard. I guess she was lucky she chucked it all up
    My brother thought that none of us would find his chocolate stash under the side board. He didn't consider the four legged family member.

    As already said , nothing to get worked up over. I am yet to have a dog that has had a reaction to any of the supposedly deadly foods *madly touching wood*

    And The Honky Tonk is an absolute chocoholic! And I am guilty of going bite for bite also , nothing worse than sticky chokky on your fingers

    Chocolate can and does KILL. Recent one on other forum, dog stole and ate dark cooking chocolate died from chocolate toxicity, only 4 years old. Not worth the risk imo.

    and how much did it steal and eat? My boyfriend's staffy has been given chocolate her whole life (she's five or six not), but not all dogs are as tolerant as she appears to be. I suppose that's the whole point of this thread All of those foods are listed to be toxic, yet some dogs are very tolerant of them.

    i suppose its the same as with not giving young babies and toddlers certain foods. eg strawberries should not be given under two as there is some toxic substance in them, same as egg not before one incase of allergies.. some children may be ok eating strawberries from a very young age and not have the reaction to them.. but if they do it could be deadly. i guess its the same with dogs, most dogs wont have a reaction to small amounts of these foods, but for the few that are intollerable to the certain foods it can be fatal. so i guess i am in the "dont want to take the chance" group. it just could be my dog that could have the fatal reaction.. ill just stick to dog foods.

    I didn't know strawberries and eggs were toxic to kids. My brother was certainly given anything we had (within reason, no alcohol, etc.). His favourite was to taste any lemons we had on the dinner table. He lovd curry, pepper, everything haha.

    I dont think its because they are toxic, it just they are common in allergic reactions so they say to not feed them till they are a little older so if they do have a reaction their body is better and fighting it.

    I didnt feed either of my children meat or peanut butter until they were 12 months old. Everything else, they got

    Dark Chocolate is worse because the content of theobromine is higher (because the Cocoa content is higher) and as Silvershadow said it also depends on the amount, a large amount of dark cooking chocolate would definitely cause severe illness and death if not caught early. General if you know straight away and can make the dog throw up or take it to the vet to make it throw up they should be ok. It also depends on the size of the dog, a small dog is obviously more at risk then a large dog.

    Milk and white chocolate are different because lower content of theobromine

    Small amount of choc won't hurt your dog.

    This is a handy way of checking to see how much of what chocolates for what sized dogs are dangerous.

    Default Sunday mail - Lethal pet foods report

    They tested all the major pet foods and found some to have levels of the preserative sulpher dioxide, 435 times more than claimed on the packaging. Sulphur dioxide destroys the thiamine (vit B) levels in food, which is essential to the health of the animal. Scientists have warned the public that thiamine deficiency can a cause serious neurological breakdown in dogs and cats. It happens very suddenly and is extremely severe. Confused vets and owners could mistake this condition for a brain tumour leading to the pet being put down unnecessarily. The RSPCA is pushing for new laws to ensure there is enough thiamine in pet foods and reccomends owners feed human grade raw meats until we have adequate safeguards.
