    I have been feeding my lab garlic powder on her food for 10 years A old dog trainer that won 92 straight field trials told me about it and said it helped keep fleas away. I am not here to tell you that there is any evedience that
    what he says is true but the 2 dogs I had before my lab lived to be 14 years old and garlic powder never hurt them and I have never found a flea on my dogs

    Thank you for such a wonderful information and the replies shared regarding the food items to be given to our dogs. However, certain items have been consumed by my dog. Cakes are his favourite, thus he eats raisins, chocolates and nuts.

    I have also fed him quite frequently boiled fish and egg flip. Anyways will be alert.

    About 6 years ago, not knowing that grapes were a problem for dogs we tossed a grape to our CLF and alternated with our Jack Russell. Each had about 5 grapes (if not fewer) and within 5 hours time the lab was so sick and weak she couldn't lift her head to vomit. I sat up with her all night, being hours from the nearest emergency vet. About 6am she raised her head, and looked at me an hour later she stood and went to get a drink and by that evening you would have never known she'd been sick.
    The Jack Russell on the other hand didn't show any symptoms or anything. It was a scary night for sure but the girl recovered. Lesson learned.

    Lots of good info here, thanks.
    We had a scare in November, our black ate some home made playdough. My wife babysits and made some snow men out of the playdough. Jack ate 3 or 4 snowmen. He was swollen right up and drinking like crazy. I was timing him when he was peeing and the first time he peed for over a minute.
    Ended up at the vets and 2 bags of IV fluid.He pulled through that but we found out before Christmas he has bone cancer.:( Its tough losing a good dog,thanks again for the info.

    My guess tobacco is on here because, since dogs don't have thumbs they tend to catch themselves on fire lighting their cigarettes and cigars.

    Sorry, but I have an odd since of humor and had to share. Truthfully this was an interesting and informative thread.

    The fruit of an ornamental Bradford Pear tree is toxic. It's actually the seed. I've seen a very sick dog from this. I also found out it is very toxic to children. It's cyanide.
