Top 10 Things Dogs Eat That Can Hurt Them

This post is an edited article from PetPlace.com and their Dog Crazy newsletter. Watch out for our for legged PALS!

Some of these items are generally non-toxic while other items (including foods) can be highly toxic. Today I want to give you a list of the most toxic items dogs commonly ingest. They include:

  1. Chocolate
  2. Cocoa bean mulch
  3. Cigarettes and cigarette butts
  4. Mushrooms
  5. Paint balls
  6. Potpourri
  7. Grapes and raisins
  8. Slug bait

  9. Some types of chewing gum that contain Xylitol
  10. Pennies
  11. Yarn, string, ribbon, cassette tape and other similar items


If your dog eats something and you have any doubt about whether it is dangerous or toxic, always call your veterinarian or local emergency clinic.
