Pet Toxins

Chocolate, fruit and nuts may sound like tasty delights to you, but these foods can be downright deadly to our four-legged friends. Avoid these common toxins to ensure your dogs and cats live long, healthy lives.

Grapes and Raisins Healthy for you? Yes. Healthy for pets? No. In dogs and cats, grapes can cause kidney failure.

Bread Dough The dog's body heat will cause the dough to expand quickly resulting in severe abdominal pain and bloating. In some cases, death can occur if enough dough is eaten.

Chewing Gum The artificial sweetener, xylitol, in many types of gum and breath mints, can be deadly to pets. The sweetener can cause a low-blood sugar crisis in your pet. In fact, just one pack of gum can kill a dog.

Macadamia Nuts Ingesting these nuts can cause tremors, weakness, unsteadiness, depression, a rapid heart rate, and a dangerous rise in body temperature that can lead to other complications.

Nicotine Nicotine is highly toxic so it doesn't take much to cause a health crisis for your pet, including seizures, coma and death.

Chocolate Who doesn't find chocolate irresistible? But when it comes to dogs, chocolate is one deadly treat. Caffeine-like stimulants in chocolate known as methylxanthines can produce vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst and urination, hyperactivity, abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures and even death.

Alcohol Alcohol ingestion can lead to seizures, heart arythmia, vomiting, coma and death.

Pain Relievers In most cases, problems are caused by pet owners giving their pets drugs intended for human use.

Tea Ever had your cat poke its head into your cup of tea? It's not just annoying, it can be downright dangerous depending on the type of tea you're drinking. Caffeine in your tea is toxic to both cats and dogs.

Onions If you toss your dog a piece of steak cooked with onions, you're putting your dog in danger. Onions are toxic to dogs and cats whether they're raw or cooked.
