Toxic Food and Plants for Dogs

Avoid hazardous food and remove poisonous plants and other toxic substances that can harm or kill your pets! Toxic food and plants for dogs can be found at the links below. Be aware of what you are feeding your pets!

Toxic and Hazardous Foods

Just because humans can eat certain foods and they don’t get sick doesn’t mean that your pet can eat those same foods. If you are feeding them their dog food (whether RAW, a nutritional kibble, or wholesome, nutritionally balanced fresh food that you prepare for your dog), they do not also need to eat human food including table scraps and junk food.

You can do a search on the internet to find lists of foods that are hazardous for your dog and other pets. Two examples of such lists include one on the ASPCA website, Foods that are Hazardous to Dogs, and one on the Humane Society website, Foods that are Poisonous to Pets.

It is important to read this information so you know which foods can harm your dog’s health. If you have children, it is also important to educate them about why they should not feed the foods on these lists to your family pets!
