Poisons abound in every home. Potentially lethal substances include disinfectants, paints, paint remover, detergent, poisonous edibles and plants. One of the most important things to remember is that dogs can not eat many things that people can eat. Here is a list of foods that are toxic for dogs:

- Chocolate (all forms)*Please keep your dogs away from your Holiday chocolate.
- Coffee (all forms)
- Alcoholic beverages
- Avocado
- Fatty foods
- Macadamia nuts
- Moldy or spoiled foods
- Onions, onion powder
- Raisins and grapes
- Salt
- Yeast dough
- Garlic
- Products sweetened with xylitol (such as sugarless gum or candy)

All of these can make your dog very sick or cause death depending upon the amount ingested and the weight of your dog.

There are also many plants in and out of the house that are poisonous to dogs. This is a very limited list but I thought I would highlight few common ones. If you go to the ASPCA website they have very detailed expanded list. http://www.aspca.com


One more note: Many folks put battery operated toys with a pack of batteries attached under their Christmas tree. Batteries are very toxic to dogs if they are ingested.

Your best friend will appreciate that you are taking the time to make their environment safe.
