Great thread Clea. Definitely think it should be a 'sticky', very important info.
Thanks Clea! Few questions...
Why would they put yucca in cat food???
Great thread. Just a couple of things... As far as I know it is not clear what the toxic agent is in grapes and actually it is not toxic for some dogs. Yes, I agree I wouldn't test if it is for my dog or not. I am just saying this so that people don't panic if the dog ate some grapes.
Tuna is another fish very high in thiaminase. So it is better not to feed large quantities of it when raw.
And I just came across the following on facebook. Someone got Cocoa Mulch from Target for their garden. One of their dogs ate some of it and the next day the dog had apparently a seizure and died instantly. The mulch contains a chemical that can be harmful for dogs and cats but it doesn't say it on the label. Here is a link with more info snopes.com: Cocoa Mulch Danger to Dogs
hippo, and then the owners sued the company. Although, I don't know how silly you have to be to use "cocoa" mulch (and yes, it DOES say that it is made from the cocoa tree) with dogs. It should seem obvious? >.>
We have always given our dogs leftovers of things such as bolognaise, which has contained onions, and we've never had a problem. I would assume that it would depend on the dog and quantity, just like chocolate.
Calamine lotion is toxic as well.
When Amos was stung by a swarm of wasps we rang the vet, he asked what we had in the medicine cabinet. When we said calamine he told us how toxic it was.
I am going to query garlic...
It is add to most dry food, and I have been told, if added in small doses to food it is ok.
I understand garlic is part of the onion family but???
Dogs Aren't Our Whole Lives, But They Make Our Lives Whole
Same family as onion but less of the toxic compound whatsamathingy....therefore ok in small amounts
