Foods that are perfectly suitable for human consumption, as well as other animals, may be toxic and even poisonous to your dog, posing a serious threat to their health and well-being. Why? Because all animals have very different rates of metabolism. Metabolism is basically the process of breaking down food and turning it into energy. 

Please note that while we’re attempting to add every food we can find that is potentially unsafe for dogs, there are certain foods that we may miss, so don’t consider a food safe to feed to our dog just because it’s not on this list of foods bad for dogs.

Do your research if you are uncertain and let us know by adding a comment below with your new information, so we can keep this list of food bad for dogs updated. If you are worried about something your pet consumed, please call your vet promptly.

Alcohol

Do not give your dog alcohol on purpose. Alcohol can cause not only intoxication, lack of coordination, poor breathing and abnormal acidity, but potentially even coma and/or death.5 Find out what dogs can drink safely.

Apple Seeds

The casing of apple seeds are toxic to a dog as they contain a natural chemical (amygdlin) that releases cyanide when digested. This is really only an issue if a large amount was eaten and the seed were chewed up by the dog, causing it to enter its bloodstream. To play it safe, be sure to core and seed apples before you feed them to your dog.2

Avocado

Avocados contain persin, which can cause diarrhea, vomiting and heart congestion. The most dangerous part of an avocado is the pit because it is a choking hazard and it is full of persin. If you think your dog has ingested an avocado pit, call your vet asap. If your dog ate a small piece of avocado, it will probably be okay, but make sure you monitor your dog and call your vet for further care.5

Candy, Chewing Gum, Toothpaste & Mouthwash

Not only does candy contain sugar, but it often contains xylitol, which can lead to vomiting, loss of coordination, seizures and liver failure.1

Cat Food

Cat food contains proteins and fats that are targeted at the diet of a cat, not a dog. The protein and fat levels in cat food are too high for your dog, and not healthy. Ingesting too much cat food can result in upset stomach, obesity and pancreatitis.3

Chocolate

Chocolate contains theobromine and caffeine, which speed the heart rate and stimulate the nervous system. Depending on the type of chocolate, amount your dog ingested and your dog’s weight will determine how sick (or not sick) your dog may become.

Ingesting too much theobromine and caffeine in chocolate may result in: vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, increased urination, tremors, elevated heart rate, seizures and death.3 Below is a list of most dangerous to least dangerous chocolate to dogs:

  • Cocoa powder
  • Unsweetened baker’s chocolate
  • Semisweet chocolate
  • Dark chocolate
  • Milk chocolate
  • White chocolate

Since this is a common item in houses and dogs love the smell and taste of it, PetMD created a “dog chocolate toxicity meter” to help you know how serious your dog’s chocolate ingestion may be.

Coffee, Tea & Other Caffeine

Caffeine is extremely dangerous to dog and within 1-2 hours, your dog could be experiencing mild to severe hyperactivity, restlessness, vomiting, elevated heart rate and blood pressure, tremors, seizures and death.4

Cooked Bones

When it comes to bones, the danger is that cooked bones can easily splinter when chewed by your dog. Raw (uncooked) bones, however, are appropriate and good for both your dog’s nutrition and teeth.

Corn On The Cob

While small amounts of corn are safe for a dog to ingest, giving your dog an ear of corn can be dangerous. If your dog is determined enough (which let’s face it, most dogs are) they will eat the cob and all. The cob can be a choking hazard and can cause intestinal blockage. This could be fatal to your dog.3

Fat Trimmings

Cooked and uncooked fat trimmings can cause pancreatitis.5

Garlic

While garlic can be okay for dogs in very small amounts (and even beneficial for flea treatment), larger amounts can be risky. Garlic is related to onions which is toxic for dogs because it kills dog’s red blood cell count, causing anemia. Signs may include weakness, vomiting and troubles breathing.5

Grapes & Raisins

Grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure for dogs. Even a small amount can make a dog ill. Vomiting is an early symptom followed by depression and low energy. We’ve heard stories of dogs dying from only a handful of grapes, so do not feed your pup this potentially toxic food.5

Hops

An ingredient in beer that can be toxic to your dog. The consumption of hops by your dog can cause vomiting, panting, increased heart rate, fever and even death.4

Human Vitamins

It isn’t recommended to give your dog one of your vitamins or supplements. Human vitamins often contain 100% of the recommended daily amount of various minerals. This could cause an overdose of a mineral for your dog.

The most dangerous vitamin is prenatal vitamins, which have a higher dose of iron and can cause iron toxicity in pets. If your dog ingests a bunch of prenatal vitamins (or other vitamins with a high dosage of iron) you should call your vet immediately. 1

Liver

In small amounts, liver is great but avoid feeding too much liver to your dog. Liver contains quite a bit of vitamin A, which can adversely affect your pup’s muscles and bones.2

Macadamia Nuts

Ingesting even small amounts of macadamia nuts can be lethal to your dog. Symptoms include muscle shakes, vomiting, increased temperature and weak back legs. If your dog ingested chocolate with the macadamia nuts the symptoms can be worse.5

Marijuana

Depending how much your dog was exposed to can affect the level of poison. There isn’t much information out about dogs and marijuana but from what we can find, these are the common symptoms: slow response times, dribbling urine, heart rate change, neurological stimulation, hyperactivity, coma and even death.4 Read more about Dogs and Marijuana.

Milk & Dairy Products

While small doses aren’t going to kill your dog, you could get some smelly farts and some nasty cases of diarrhea. Milk and dairy products can cause digestive problems as well as trigger food allergies.5

Onions & Chives

No matter what form they’re in (dry, raw, cooked, powder, within other foods), onions are some of the absolute worst foods you could possibly give your pup. They contain disulfides and sulfoxides (thiosulphate), both of which can cause anemia and damage red blood cells.5

Peppers

Bell Peppers are okay to feed dogs. Dogs are carnivores and prefer meat to vegetables, but there are some benefits to veggies. For example, green peppers are a low-calorie snack that is packed with vitamin C and beta-carotene. Be sure to chop peppers into small pieces because the outer skin can be tough and difficult to chew. Pureeing or steaming the peppers makes them easier to consume and digest. As with most human food, don’t overdo it because too much could lead to sickness. It might go without saying, but never give your dog spicy varieties such as jalapeños or hot peppers!

Persimmon, Peach & Plum Pits

Pits/seeds from these fruits can cause intestinal issues in dogs. Additionally, peach and plum pits have cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs (and people!).5

Raw Meat & Fish

Raw meat and fish can have bacteria which causes food poisoning. Additionally, some fish can contain a parasite that causes “fish disease” or “salmon poisoning disease.” Symptoms include vomiting, fever and enlarged lymph nodes. Cooked fish is perfectly fine since the parasite is killed during the cooking process.5

Rhubarb & Tomato Leaves

These contain oxalates, which can cause, drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, weakness, tremors and bloody urine.4

Salt

Just like salt isn’t the healthiest thing for humans, it’s even less healthy for dogs. Too much of it can lead to sodium ion poisoning, which may result in vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, increased temperature, seizures and even death.5

Sugar

This applies to any food containing sugar. Make sure you check the ingredient label for human foods – corn syrup (which is a less expensive form of sugar or glucose) is found in just about everything these days. Too much sugar for your pup can lead to dental issues, obesity and even diabetes.5

Tobacco

Tobacco contains nicotine, which can be lethal to dogs. Symptoms include vomiting, abnormal heart rate, tremors and weakness. Tobacco poisoning can present itself within 1 hour of ingestion.4

Xylitol

A sugar alcohol found in gum, candies, baked goods and other sugar-substituted items, xylitol, while causing no apparent harm to humans, is extremely toxic to dogs. Even small amounts can cause low blood sugar, seizures, liver failure and even death for your pup.5

Yeast

Just like yeast rises in bread, it will also expand and rise within your pup’s tummy. Make sure they don’t get any. While mild cases will cause gas, lots of farting and discomfort — too much of it could rupture their stomach and intestines. Yeast dough is also dangerous because as it ferments and rises it makes alcohol which can lead to alcohol poisoning.5

Infographic: The Menu Your Dog Shouldn’t Order

Here’s a “menu” of things your dog should never eat.

Foods That Are Toxic For Dogs

To share this infographic on your site, simply copy and paste the code below:

Keep These Foods Out Of Your Dog’s Reach As Well

While these don’t fall in a particular category above, you’ll want to avoid them as well.

Old Food

You don’t like old and moldy food, so what makes you think your dog will? The bacteria in spoiled food contains all sorts of toxins that can be damaging to your dog’s health. Feed them the freshest and best, dog-approved food only!

Leftovers

If you feed your dog leftovers regularly, they won’t get a proper diet. If you do give them table scraps, make sure to take out any bones and trim down the fat.

Human Snacks

Chips can contain garlic and onion powder, cookies may contain raisins, chocolate or macadamia nuts, etc. Bottom line — there’s a reason there’s food and treats made especially for dogs.

Keep Your Dog On A Healthy Diet

Choosing to raise a dog is a big responsibility. Just as with a child, you’ve welcomed another living being into your household and family. We probably don’t have to tell you to take care of your dog, but what people often don’t realize is that as similar as the two can be, they also have very different needs when it comes to food.

Ask your veterinarian what kind of food might be best for your particular dog breed as well as age and any special needs. That way you know what dogs can’t eat and you’re less likely to have any issues.

Safe Human Foods For Dogs

While there are certainly some human foods that are safe to feed your dog there are many which are unsafe and potentially poisonous when ingested by your dog. As a general rule of thumb, it is far better to be safe than sorry, so avoid feeding your dog any human food unless recommended by your vet.

Dogs that are not given human food or table scraps are generally better behaved than dogs who do receive people food. These dogs do not beg because they know they won’t receive any scraps. They also tend to drool less and bother visitors to your home less because they understand that human food is for humans and not for them.

With all this being said, below is a list of human foods that are safe for dogs to eat in moderation.

Lean Meat

Lean meat includes meat without bones that has had excessive fat removed. If feeding chicken and turkey, the skin should also be removed as it can be a source of fat. Lean meat includes the white meat from chicken or turkey and provides a tasty treat for your dog as well as a good source of protein.1

Eggs

Salmonella and biotin deficiency are two things to be cautious of when feeding your dog raw eggs. Most vets will recommend giving your dog a cooked egg over a raw egg. Eggs are an excellent source of protein and have a host of vitamins for your pup. Don’t worry about cooking the egg in butter, oil, salt, pepper or other additives, your dog doesn’t need those things and they can be harmful to them as well.3

Fruits

Not including the fruits listed above, dogs can safely enjoy:

  • bananas
  • apple slices
  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • watermelon
  • cantaloupe
  • cranberries
  • mangoes
  • oranges
  • peaches
  • pears
  • pineapples
  • raspberries

The seeds should be removed from these fruits or in the case of watermelon it should be a seedless melon as most fruit seeds contain a trace amount of arsenic which is poisonous (it’s a small amount but why risk it?).3

Vegetables

The vegetables below are safe for dogs to ingest:

  • broccoli
  • brussels sprouts
  • carrots
  • celery
  • cucumber
  • green beans
  • peas
  • potatoes (only if cooked)
  • spinach
  • sweet potatoes

Vegetables make great low-calorie snacks and good training tools. In fact, you can give your dog slices of carrots as a treat and a healthier alternative to other training treats. Stay away from canned and pickled vegetables as they contain too much salt.3

White Rice

Cooked white rice is frequently referred to as a potential meal for a dog with an upset stomach. Generally boiled white chicken and white rice are used to help firm up stools as well as nourish a dog that is having trouble getting any nutrition from food as a result of illness.5

When In Doubt, Ask A Vet

If your dog is acting strangely, or experiencing even minor symptoms including weakness, lack of coordination, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. and you think they may have consumed something they shouldn’t have, seek a veterinarian’s attention immediately. If you wait too long, your dog might not make it.

What If You Cannot Reach Your Veterinarian?

In an emergency when your veterinarian cannot be reached you should contact your local animal emergency clinic or call the animal poison hotline at 888-232-8870. You can also try the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435.

Depending on the nature of the item ingested the animal poison hotline or your veterinarian may induce vomiting to regurgitate the item that has been ingested. If the item is something that is likely to cause further damage to your dog on the way back up, vomiting will not be induced and other methods of helping your dog will be discussed such as having your dog ingest an item which will bind to the offending food and neutralize it or surgery to remove the item that is causing your dog’s problems.

Be Proactive: Save Yourself From Expensive Vet Bills

If your dog eats something and gets sick, the vet bill can be tough for pet parents to stomach. Take the proactive step and consider pet insurance. That way if an accidental treat becomes a medical emergency, your dog (and your wallet) will be better off. Check out this video we created to better explain what pet insurance is and why it’s worth it.

See something we missed? Does your pup have a favorite food you’re unsure is safe?

If people spend as much thinking on their kids as on their dogs, this country would not have so many dumb people.
Jeremiah
Well, I gave my Dog grapes, and there was nothing wrong with my dog. And how are grapes bad for dogs?
Jeremiah, as mentioned above, we don’t recommend giving grapes to dogs. Several sources, vets and findings say they are toxic for dogs, can cause liver damage and can be fatal.

Our dog, only a little Jack Russell/Cavalier Spaniel cross…..loves hot food….and I mean hot…..I’ve read dogs can’t taste hot foods, etc because of low number of taste buds…..or it causes stomach/digestive upsets…..No, no, no…..She loves some added spice to her dog food…..Whether it is Algerian Merquez, Ethiopian Berbere, or spice from a packet of Japanese Coco curry…..She prefers to have her food interesting….as do we…Never a problem….We don’t overdo it….she eats at the same concentration we do and loves it….in addition, she gets some leftovers from time to time…..I absolutely guarantee this dog tastes hot foods and loves it…..Put a bland bowl of food in front of her and she’ll walk away from it……

Spent the morning observing my 100 lbs. Rottweiler after I saw he had thrown up cherries which grow on our property. When I looked up cherries I found that the pits or seeds contain Cyanide and even one ingested could kill a small dog. Since the deer and fox the roam our property expell the pits in their feces I was not overly concerned but watched for signs of lethargy, twitching, red mucus areas and unconsciousness. If treated quickly with hydration with 3% peroxide and Amyntrite they can recover.

Why is it so difficult to buy Nutro wet canned food? Has it been taken off the market? It smelled so good, that I wanted to have some.
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Fred Zehend
Anything for my newly adopted dog. She is a rescue and deserves the best. Thank God for animals.
Nikki
I am confused why it says cooked fish is ok, but later down it says fish in general is a no no
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Raw fish can contain bacteria which causes food poisoning. Cooked fish is ok to give dogs typically. As always, consult your vet before changing your dog’s diet.
Pam
What do you think about Royal Canine SO dog food
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
We haven’t researched Royal Canine dog food, sorry.
Jerry
The title is “Toxic”

There is nothing toxic about cheese and dairy. Perhaps group discomfort foods into a different group than toxic, will kill your dog, foods.

If dairy is only listed because of possible allergic reaction, then you can’t discriminate and have to list all dog allergic sources and foods.

Thank you for the thourough list though.

Thanks for pointing this out Jerry. You are correct – we’ve updated the title and article content accordingly.

Dogs and human vitamins?? Everytime we pull out the bottles, vit c vit e etc… He begs. I dropped a vit e he gobbled it up. The ver said its ok good for his coat and skin. Hes a havanese. Any salmon oil is ok and that seems dangerous to me because of iodine. Comments please
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
I’m not sure what you are asking, sorry. If your vet said it’s ok for him to have those vitamins, then it should be safe.
Eric
I bought a property 12 yrs ago with purple grape vines straddling the back fence. My female GSD absolutely loved eating them all summer long and into the fall until she died at almost 17 – quite old for the breed. I wonder if it was her raw meat diet which gave her such robust health that she was immune to the purported negative effects of grapes?
Sally Matlock
quite a feat – we never really know what they want /need, but it sounds like she sure enjoyed it – you may have helped extend her life span! congrats.
ATK
Are you Kidding..You know how many Dogs are on Raw meat diet and are thriving?
Eric
For the last 25 years my dogs have enjoyed long, extremely active, very healthy lives on a 95% raw meat (both muscle & organ meat from lamb, beef, elk) diet. I supplement with a very small amount of quality kibble so their systems are used to it should I need to give it as an entire meal rarely when travelling. A healthy dog obviously can handle parasites as that has never been an issue for the 4 dogs I’ve fed raw meat. A GSD I put down 2 yrs ago lived to almost 17 and never needed vet care.

I don’t think a dog can eat an “avocado pet”. Cute typo.
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
HAHAHA that was completely unintentional but agree, a cute typo. I’ll be sure to update that, thanks!

P u l i and the dog would eat onions every time he saw one. I am talking about a whole onion. He never got sick by eating one. He lived to be 21 years old and died of old age. I wonder why eating onions did not make him sick. Please explain
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Perhaps the amount of onion ingested as well as the size of your dog wasn’t enough to cause damage to your dog.
Rita Smith
My dog is coughing a lot , his nose is warm and so is his body. He eats good . He has played all day as always. Just noticed he was coughing more and more . Nothing coming up . Isn’t a healthy dogs nose suppose to be cold f he is well ?. Do you have any idea what could be wrong .?Thank you . We are taking him to vet early in the morning .

Yes, when I was about, you could edit wiki, I wrote “cops and robbers share the same toilet”

My 3 year old Yorkiepoo just had a seizure and when it was over he vomited up to large pic of fried egg that he had for breakfast about 4 hours go. He seems to be ok now. Any suggestions as to what may have caused this. Never had one before.
She is just laying around and not doing very much
My nine month old French bulldog puppy I think may have eaten a spicy pepper for my backyard although I did not see her eat it I think she may have before I could catch her now she has vomited five times within 45 minutes and I’m very worried about her She is just laying around and not doing very much at all not sure what to do the closest emergency vet is about an hour and a half away from here the peppers are small and they’re red and they’re spicy I seen pictures of them on the Internet but the name is very difficult they look kind a like a tiny tiny tiny jalapeño but they’re red
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Sorry for the delayed response, we don’t moderate comments over the weekend. Were you able to get your dog seen by a vet? How is your dog doing today? I hope all is well!

What about CBD & Terpene Rich Hemp Oil, medium chain triglyceride oil from coconut oil for dogs?
Read that we should not give coconut or the oil to dogs, but reading other sites it is not mentioned.
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
CBD oil is safe for some dogs, but always check with your vet before giving. As for coconut oil perhaps this link will help you.

So, my awful brother was cooking some chicken. And, instead of throwing the cut off raw chicken fat parts- he throws it on the ground and my Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Curtis took it and ate it. After Curtis swallowed it, he started to make a weird “glump” kinda noise. Only did that sound like 2 or 3 times, I think. Then, after like 3 seconds I looked at his face and he looked insane sorta. (In my opinion) After a my brother put Curtis back to his spot, he looked normal again. Now my brother knows what NOT to give to dogs. Literally scared me when my brother gave it, cause I thought my poor puppy was gonna die since it was raw! Thanks for this article Canine Journal!
RAJ
Our dog suddenly got back leg weakness not able to walk for last 9 days, what had happen to him.
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Have you taken him to the vet?
El Logan
Dogs eat all kinds of birds they manage to catch, including chickens, raw with no ill effects (unless salmonella, etc., is present) so maybe the dog choked on it and/or had indigestion from gulping too much at once.
Shay
My husband and I just got boxer Pitbull mix when he was only 5 weeks old and he constantly needed to be held like he was still with his mother he is 2 months old and he cries anytime one of us walk away from him he loves people and constantly wants to play and cries if you stop he cannot stay by himself because all he does is bark so loud and he does not stop until he gets picked up or gets a treat I know he’s Young but he eats pretty much everything we do not large portions but he barks until he gets it we have cut back on his treats we have also stopped giving him human food I’m sure my husband and kids sneak him things every so often but I can’t lie I do too I gave him a few small pieces of fat from chuck roast and he is fine he is maybe a pound or 2 overweight he has no issues and is doing great there were actually plenty of things off the list he has eaten but he is never sick he is happy and healthy according to the vet! I feel it’s all about moderation. And common sense is the biggest issue people don’t have
Wendy Beem
Shay, I have been an owner and breeder of pitbulls, having up to 14 at a time. Crying and barking when alone is a very common issue and not just with the puppies. You have to treat your dog the same way you would a child. Too much barking is bad behavior. Why reward the dog with a treat or by picking it up? Just like with a baby, you can’t run and pick it up every time it cries. I know at times its very difficult to listen to the continuing cries and barks but I promise it will stop. But only if you don’t give in.
Pauline
We used to feed our hunting dogs Hershey Bar Bites when they where tired. They never got obvious sickness. THOUGHTS??
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Not something I would do. There’s no nutritional value in Hershey Bar Bites for a dog. Ingesting too much could harm the dogs. Thankfully, your dogs have been okay.
AsyasTrash
Before my male german shepherd named Sparky died, my family used to give him chocolate ice cream. It didn’t ever harm him. Plus, the reason(s) he died is because he had heartworms. (Heartworms are worms that roam inside and around a dogs heart, it comes from a mosquito bite.) And my dad never took him to a vet. He was adorable, I was sad to see him get buried outside of my parent’s front lawn.
Sebastian
Why would you ever feed your dog chocolate ice cream? Even though it might’ve not done any harm, why take the risk? That’s like giving a child alcohol and saying,”It never harmed him/her”(terrible analogy, I know). That is not a good way of taking care of a dog. I don’t mean to make you feel down or ashamed, but it’s just not the best your dog could get.
Noah
My dog ate a chokole ckake I think he needs the vet
Rose
Your dog should be fine. My dog has often accidentally eaten chocolate and she’s been fine and she’s going on 16 this year.
Martha Pennington
Will pork pork pork bones pork sausage because I have a man next-door that is thrown raw uncooked pork out for a dog or a cat to fine is it poisonous to puppies grown dogs or kittens or cats please give me an answer back it’s very important to give to them my manager this man is very sick and needs to leave where we live
Mary O'Sullivan
I would like to know the answer to this lady’s question as well please
Chris
My grandma doesn’t feed our dogs pork or chicken bones cause they might choke on them but the pork itself idk.
Carolina
i heard the squash or pumpkin were toxic for dog too. you can tell me if it is true?
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
Through our research, squash and pumpkin are both safe for dogs. But if you are concerned, we suggest not giving it or check with your vet ahead of time. Each dog is different and can respond to foods in various ways.
Mbosto
My dog is a mixed breed bitch about 2months old she suddenly lost her appetite and became lethargic after drinking soya milk…worried sick because i live in a country with nonexistent vets those that are there are prohibitively expensive…any ideas or home remedies please help
Kimberly Alt (Admin)
If you cannot take your dog to a vet, perhaps this online vet service can help.
