Wellllll after seeing the post about apples, I realized I didn't know all that much about whats dangerous for dogs
Soo I thought we could all compile one for people like me, who don't know everything about poisonous foods. And maybe everyone can learn a thing or two
Allright, I'll start.

Chocolate
Onions
Caffeine
Grapes
Apple Seeds
Yeast

aaaand that's all I can think of
Please, someone add.
Thanks

Same here. Phoebe especially loves the leaves!


Here is the list:

lillies
philodendrons
dieffenbachia
elephant ear
eucalyptus
spider plants
azalea
ivy
amaryllis
pyrancantha
oleander
boxwood
jerusalem cherry
bulbs

Obviously some of these are outdoor too. There is a second sheet that describes what exactly is the problem and some additional ones:

agave roots can be fatal
pulcherrima juice can irritate mucous membrane
Sago palm (Cycas) causes ataxia in hind limbs and hepatitis- Ive heard this plant is Deadly with a capitol D
mirabilis can cause gastroenteritis
wormwood can cause brain damage
african violets leaves and stems both poisonous
begonias
hydrangeas
petunias
English Ivy can cause respiratory problems and coma
eucalyptus can cause cyanide poisoning

Unlike food, most people arent going to let their pets eat plants, but just in case you have any of these it would be good to keep them way out of reach. Some are surprising to me.

Also raisins must be on the list even though they are grapes I wanted to put them seperately.

Celery is not a good but only because of the stringyness which they can choke on. Raw dough...pizza, bread and the like...it turns to alcohol in the stomach and they can die of poisoning. (if the dough is cooked it is fine).

It is so much fun to feed them natural things...they are so grateful and the joy they show on their faces is awesome.

Sorry...also mushrooms.

And Tylenol can be very dangerous...it is lethal if the dosage is not correct from the vet.

_______________________________________________________________
AND I FOUND A PUPPY/DOG PROFFING YOUR BACKYARD!....
If you have a yard(or a balcony or patio think dog thoughts while you investigate it. Check the perimeter fence or rail to make sureit is dog-proof in two ways: secure enough to prevent puppy escapes and strong enough 4 when she/he gets older. A 3 foot fence is fine for smaller dogs where as a 7foot one is needed 4 larger ones. make sure your fence is surcure.. expecially if your dog likes to dig.make sure your gates are locked sut and have no gaps beneath 'em. the safet gates spring shut after opening.And don't put n e thing near the fance that the dog can climb on. ..
FOLLOW THESE RULES IF YOUR DOG GOES OUTSIDE:
-prevent access to the bbq area when cooking food
-cover your pond
-avoid placing pants where hey can be nocked over
-fence off veg. garden
-instal digging zone or sand box if you don't want u're dog digging up your ground
----------------Check Your Pool-----------------------------
---------------Store all gardening tools and chemicals safley---------
______________________________________________________________
DOG PROOFING YOUR HOUSE
Traing will be easier and life for your puppy will be safer if you plan ahead and dog-proof u're home. Think "safe for kids" and u're almost there. What u r doin is controlling u're dogs invorment. If you do that, it is more likly you can antisipate her hehavior and prepair for the consenquences.
TIPS:
-remove electrical cords to prevent shocks
-avoid dangeling cords(there fun to tug on)
-remove cleaners out of reach
-remove trash bin
-do not give your dog a old shoes or slipper ot will lead to problems in the future
-do not let u're puippy chew on any thing.. wooden table legs are ideal
-remove thrown rugs and small carpets!
