    Are we allowed to add more harmful items for dogs here? I have some more to add and I think it might help all the dog owners. The following items should also be avoided.

    Garlic
    Chamomile
    Mustard Seeds
    Rhubarb
    Coffee or Caffeine
    Hops
    Xylitol

    Why is Garlic on your list? Plus Rhubarb? Plus chamomile?

    I don't know where you are getting your information from but it's nothing but poppycock.
    Garlic in the right quantities is helpful to dogs in various ways... It's even sold in tablet form marketed by many well known and respected brands. Am sure people who are aware of what it can do for health also know what too much can do by causing anaemia. After all water can be toxic.

    Rhubarb leaves...the leaves are toxic just like tomato plant leaves are. Isn't this what we class as waste product? We don't eat them so why would we feed our dogs.

    Chamomile..used in a multitude of calming dog treats and foods. That again pass standards. Great for the digestion too.

    It's crazy scaremongering out of context information from Google

    Are you sure? I have been told my vet many times to avoid them, especially Garlic.

    I have no idea why...chamomile is in most lily kitchen foods and their bedtime biscuits,
    Both Johnson's, and Lintbells do garlic tablets for dogs.
    Rhubarb it's the leaves like tomatoes, both get banded about on the internet together.

    Just to clarify there is a recommended amount of garlic per size of dog, but then like I said water has a toxicity dose too.

    Garlic is perfectly safe, beneficial, for dogs in moderation.

    It certainly is not toxic.

    There is a safe amount of garlic. Vets sadly are vets not food experts. Garlic is good for preventing fleas too. It helps at least.
