Chocolate contains theobromine, which is toxic to dogs. Even small amounts can cause serious health problems.

Grapes and Raisins

Onions and Garlic

Onions and garlic can damage your dog’s red blood cells, leading to anemia. They are toxic in all forms—raw, cooked, or powdered.


Avocados contain persin, which can cause vomiting and diarrhea in dogs. The pit can also be a choking hazard.


Alcohol can cause severe poisoning in dogs, leading to vomiting, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, and even death.

Macadamia Nuts

Xylitol, a sugar substitute found in many sugar-free products, can cause a rapid insulin release, leading to liver failure.
