Chocolate just might be the most loved food in the world, and it’s easy to see why. A bite (or a few) might flood your brain with feel good hormones, but this sweet treat can be deadly to your dog. Depending on your pet’s size anything between a bite size to a whole bar can have a fatal outcome.

Grapes and Raisins

This one may be new to you, but it’s true. Sure, they make great bite-sized treats, but you shouldn’t be feeding them to your dog.


Chopping them might make you cry, but eating onions can do far worse things to your dog. Onion contains disulfides and sulfoxides (thiosulphate), which can cause anemia and damage red blood cells.


It’s not good for us (even though we love it) and it’s not good for our dogs. Leave it out of your treat recipes (use a drizzle of honey instead if you really have to) and make sure to pay attention to ingredients lists of the store bought stuff- sugar is often lurking somewhere in treats or kibble.

Coffee and Caffeine

No matter how cranky your dog is in the morning, don’t give him a cup of coffee or caffeinated drink. That includes cola, tea and cocoa (as well as human cold medicine and pain killers).

Macadamia Nuts

They may be full of protein, but Macadamia nuts are deadly for your dog. If your dog eats as few as six raw Macadamia nuts, he could become ill.

Yeast Dough

You know how yeast makes dough rise. Well, if your dog gets into yeast dough, you can expect it to do the same thing in his belly! His stomach will stretch and expand, causing serious pain and lots of gas.


You’re not going to pour salt on your dog’s meal, but it is found on human food such as chips and pretzels. Keep these foods to yourself while snacking, as too much salt can lead to sodium ion poisoning.
