    I'm sure I've read somewhere that garlic is OK for dogs and causes a skin odour that repels ticks and fleas ???

    I'm pretty sure rhubarb is toxic to a lot of animals and a quick google had it show up on a list of 'not safe for dogs' list. Though it mentioned just the leaves as being bad, not sure on the stems. A friend of mine is a vet out west and she had a case of macadamia poisoning in a dog, so I think those are bad, not sure about other nuts.

    Onion is really bad, but I feed lots of seaweed (kelp), mine also get some garlic, not too much and milk........We milked our own cow and guess where the left-overs went

    One of our super treats is is when you have been super clever in our household. I have fed these things for years, but my dogs are huge, so maybe that makes a difference.

    We also had a dog who stole avocado's and she was fine, but she never ate the seed

    Copied list

    Alcoholic beverages Can cause intoxication, coma, and death.
    Baby food Can contain onion powder, which can be toxic to dogs. (Please see onion below.) Can also result in nutritional deficiencies, if fed in large amounts.
    Bones from fish, poultry, or other meat sources Can cause obstruction or laceration of the digestive system.
    Cat food Generally too high in protein and fats.
    Chocolate, coffee, tea, and other caffeine Contain caffeine, theobromine, or theophylline, which can be toxic and affect the heart and nervous systems.
    Citrus oil extracts Can cause vomiting.
    Fat trimmings Can cause pancreatitis.
    Grapes and raisins Contain an unknown toxin, which can damage the kidneys.
    Hops Unknown compound causes panting, increased heart rate, elevated temperature, seizures, and death.
    Human vitamin supplements containing iron Can damage the lining of the digestive system and be toxic to the other organs including the liver and kidneys.
    Large amounts of liver Can cause Vitamin A toxicity, which affects muscles and bones.
    Macadamia nuts Contain an unknown toxin, which can affect the digestive and nervous systems and muscle.
    Marijuana Can depress the nervous system, cause vomiting, and changes in the heart rate.
    Milk and other dairy products Some adult dogs and cats do not have sufficient amounts of the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose in milk. This can result in diarrhea. Lactose-free milk products are available for pets.
    Moldy or spoiled food, garbage Can contain multiple toxins causing vomiting and diarrhea and can also affect other organs.
    Mushrooms Can contain toxins, which may affect multiple systems in the body, cause shock, and result in death.
    Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder) Contain sulfoxides and disulfides, which can damage red blood cells and cause anemia.Cats are more susceptible than dogs. Garlic is less toxic than onions.
    Persimmons Seeds can cause intestinal obstruction and enteritis.
    Pits from peaches and plums Can cause obstruction of the digestive tract.
    Potato, rhubarb, and tomato leaves; potato and tomato stems Contain oxalates, which can affect the digestive, nervous, and urinary systems. This is more of a problem in livestock.
    Raw eggs Contain an enzyme called avidin, which decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin). This can lead to skin and hair coat problems. Raw eggs may also contain Salmonella.
    Raw fish Can result in a thiamine (a B vitamin) deficiency leading to loss of appetite, seizures, and in severe cases, death. More common if raw fish is fed regularly.
    Salt If eaten in large quantities it may lead to electrolyte imbalances.
    String Can become trapped in the digestive system; called a "string foreign body."
    Sugary foods Can lead to obesity, dental problems, and possibly diabetes mellitus.
    Table scraps (in large amounts) Table scraps are not nutritionally balanced. They should never be more than 10% of the diet. Fat should be trimmed from meat; bones should not be fed.
    Tobacco Contains nicotine, which affects the digestive and nervous systems. Can result in rapid heart beat, collapse, coma, and death.
    Yeast dough Can expand and produce gas in the digestive system, causing pain and possible rupture of the stomach or intestines.

    And to add...I feed RAW fish once a week and never have had a problem, but again my dogs are huge
    I use RAW eggs and have beautiful coats so who knows......

    I have heard that dogs cant eat anything from above lists. I feed mine raw, which includes left overs of all of the above.
    dogs are fine. Coats are great, never had bloat, nor runny poo.

    I guess its like a human, invite them around for a curry, and they are boiled chicken eaters, you are going to get er 'results' shall we say, similar with dogs.

    Chilli : had to laugh at this one, Pohm ate every single chilli we grew this year, and we grew a LOT lol

    My dogs are large, which makes a lot of difference to the 'dose' of each they get in leftovers.

    I would have taken the mince with onions in it back as "not fit for purpose".

    walnuts - but peanut paste is ok
    puffer fish
    strapping tape ($4000 to remove from Labrador...)
    tomatos (although I know a few dogs that eat these with no problems - in other news - its the plant not the fruit).

    i think some of these things in small doses are ok but not in bigger doses. Ie 3 raw brown onions can kill a dog, but smaller quantities like the left over bolognese - will just make outrageous farts.

    my dog likes chilli

    Some dogs are just allergic to random stuff like wheat, or corn or some proteins eg can eat turkey but not roo...

    garlic is ok in small doses - eg one clove garlic across 8 serves of dog food.

    bread is ok - most dog food is made of wheat.
    whole meal bread is better but a dog cannot live on weetbix alone. milk is ok in small doses. so is cheese.

    grapes and raisins occasionally - are ok. We used to put Aussie Terror's pills inside a raisin to get her to eat them. For Frosty - she gets hers inside peanut paste inside a sardine.

    Marajuana can kill a dog - some idiot left their stash at one of our local dog training parks (next to a football and cricket ground) and several dogs ended up at the vet.

    feeding lots of fish oil - must be paired with vitamin E supplements (or lots of vegies) because the fish oil depletes the vitamin E - and dogs can get quite sick if this is not balanced. (is interesting that someone else found raw fish depletes vitamin B - are you sure it's not E?).

    lol... Didn't realise 'dough' always refers to the uncooked/baked state. You probably guessed English isn't my first language Perhaps it's my German upbringing. When I hear 'yeast' or 'dough' I stop thinking and start drooling. Like my dog.
