    Many fruits and veg are fine for dogs, in evolutionary terms they will always have consumed plant matter either through scavenging or from the stomach contents of their prey. But of course some fruit and veg is highly toxic to dogs. The first post here lists things that should never be fed. I would suggest cutting out the onions for a start. And I don't know if the pips in kiwi fruit contain cyanide or not (the stones and pips of some other fruit do)

    Be careful what wood your dog gnaws on whilst out and about. Unbeknown to be, lots of felled logs are poisonous to dogs. My girl is at the vets now and waiting to hear results.

    This is what google says - "Spinach is safe for your dog. Spinach contains oxalates that are toxic to a dog's kidneys. However, a very large quantity would have to be consumed to cause damage. Strawberries are safe for your dog and makes a good treat.13 Feb 2016"

    My dog smelled chocolate cake through a styrafoam cooler thing and he ate through the styrafoam. Now he is growling and snapping and walking all weird. Usually he is absolutely harmless.

    If you google poison for dogs it will give a long list of food and plants that are poisonous to dogs and cats, I now make sure that I have no poisonous plants growing

    My spaniel has been having tremors for the past week since moving to a new house. There have been two episodes of head tremors that were pretty scary, his head would shake for about a minute then he would be fine for about 10 mins then it would start again, this pattern lasted for about an hour. He has been to the vet and had a clear blood panel and he may be referred to a neurologist if it keeps happening.

    I noticed there were sweet peas growing in the garden, I know these are toxic. He is not the type to ingest seeds but he has been sunbathing near them and could maybe have accidentally ingested a little?? He hasn't vomited or anything but do you think the tremors and sweet peas could be linked? I've pulled them up now!

    I don't know enough about plants / garden stuff etc to do it otherwise I would but I do know raw salmon and spinach are not poisonous, let alone fatal.

    Hope its ok to put this here but if anyone is concerned about their dog/cat eating something or coming into contact with something toxic, pet owners can now also call the veterinary poisons information service (VPIS) on their animal poison line.
