  • Chocolate
  • Avocados
  • Grapes and raisins
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Onions, garlic and chives
  • Xylitol (a common sugar-free sweetener, often found in chewing gum and commercial baked goods, that can cause life-threatening liver failure)
  • Yeast dough
  • Some beverages, such as coffee and alcohol, can also be poisonous to pets.
  • Grapes are sometimes recommended as treats for dogs; however, cases of serious kidney damage related to eating grapes have been reported. Raisins have also been reported to be toxic to dogs.
