Do you know what to keep away from your dog?

Here’s a list of some of the most common ones:

  • Grapes and raisins

  • Dark chocolate

  • Cherries

  • Avocados

  • Green tomatoes

  • Wild mushrooms

  • Garlic

  • Sugar free candy, gum and peanut butter (xylitol)

  • Macadamia nuts

  • Lily of the valley

  • Azalea

  • Rhododendron

  • Rhubarb

  • Tulips   

What can you do if your dog does eat these substances?

You can call pet poison helpline 855-764-7661. But the best thing is to see your Veterinarian or if off hours go to an emergency clinic. If early enough after ingestion, they can administer apomorphine to induce vomiting. There are substances that should not be vomited, hence the importance of a veterinary visit   Obviously the best move is to avoid your pet from eating things they should not. Watch your pet!
