Foods that are toxic to dogs

Many of our common foods are toxic to dogs and can cause anything from tummy upset to full blown neurological disorders.

Some of these toxic foods are::

  • Onions and garlic – these cause anaemia, or a lack of red blood cells, and will cause tiredness and a reluctance to move. Left over Bolognese or soups with stock in them are common causes.
  • Chocolate – dogs love chocolate, but it contains a chemical that dogs cannot metabolise. It will affect many areas of the body including the heart lungs, kidneys and the nervous system. If you believe your dog has ingested a significant quantity of chocolate, take him to the vet.
  • Caffeine – can also affect many areas of the body. Hyperactivity is the first symptom, followed by weakness, staggering and tremors.
  • Grapes and sultanas – although the exact mechanism is unknown, there are many accounts of poisoning from these fruits, in particular sultanas and raisins – simply because they are much more concentrated than grapes.
  • Xylitol – this sweetener is used in many things, in particular ‘sugar free’ foods. It is remarkably toxic to dogs and will cause low blood sugar and eventual liver damage.
