References links below with some more details ref quantities issues. VERDICT STILL OUT ON CRANBERRIES !

word doc file of this page....Toxic to cats and dogs common human  foods.docx

and just as many household cleaning products can be toxic to breath even to cats and dogs...HERB DIFFUSER OILS can be TOXIC to dogs and cats...LAVENDER especially risky to epilepsy seizures prone dogs...   Plants and herbs and diffuser oils toxic to DOGS as per ASPCA and a vet link provided page.docx  Plants and herbs and diffuser oils  toxic to CATS as per ASPCA and a vet link provided.docx

ps not affecting VEGAN dogs and cats of course is the issue that RAW fed dogs and cats  get massive health problems due to excess protein. besides other FATS also causing heart health problems and the gmo cattle feed processed into the flesh if eaten and antibiotics etc. Chicken causes the most pet allergies ...lamb is a common trigger for epilepsy..etc. 

LIST simply for efficiency…

  1. Chocolate. (LETHAL.  Even small doses of dark especially cocoa is toxic big health problems)
  2. Onions garlic, chives. (garlic small medicinal portions for flea etc prevention benefits but quantities issue as toxic generally. CATS more at risk than dogs also. Quantities ½  clove for small dogs up to 3 cloves only for very large dogs)
  3. XYLITOL artificial sweetener like all artificial sweeteners is TOXIC to dogs and cats. BEWARE can be  in  PEANUT BUTTERS ! 
  4. Cherry Pips apple pipsRaisins, grapes
  5. Raisins, grapes
  6. Macadamia Nuts
  7. Mushrooms (wild the most but can include modern quorn as a fungus but current opinion is not toxic to dogs or cats)
  8. Citrus Fruits

(quantities issue…smaller dogs have between 1/4 to 1/3 of a whole moderate-sized orange and that larger dogs can eat an entire one. Vitamin C etc benefits from small quantities. “Oranges can affect blood values in diabetic dogs, more due to the vitamin C than the sugar levels, and would be best avoided in these patients,” says Liff.)

  1. Oils except for medicinal/small purposes (higher risk to pancreas risk dogs possibly)
  2. Bakers yeast
  3. Avocado

(not highly toxic to dogs and cats certain types of avocado are   (seeds and pips most toxic like cherry and apple pips. Quantities issue ref avocado fruit itself)


Now….in another list I got from somewhere reference mislaid but can find again probably …there is BROCOLI and TOMATOS…so rather questionable…but…tomatoes that are NOT RIPE and their LEAVES and stems are the issue here I read…found them…see bottom of doc for links…

Foods That Are Toxic To or Just-Plain-Bad for Dogs
• Alcohol – Can cause intoxication, coma, and death
• Avocado – The fruit, pit and plant are all toxic. The toxic ingredient in avocado is called persin. They can cause difficulty breathing and fluid accumulation in the chest, abdomen and heart, vomiting, diarrhea, death, inflammation of mammary glands, cardiac failure, respiratory distress, generalized congestion, abdominal enlargement.
• Apple, Almond, Apricot, Peach, Cherry, Plum, Pear, Prunes & similar fruit – The seeds of these fruits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to dogs as well as humans causing diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, (Stem, Seeds and Leaves).
• Baby Food – Can contain onion power which can be toxic to dogs
• Broccoli – Gastrointestinal irritant
• Cat Food – Usually too high in protein and fats.
• Chocolate – Chocolate can cause seizures, coma and death. Baker’s chocolate is the most dangerous. A dog can consume milk chocolate and appear to be fine because it is not as concentrated, but it is still dangerous.
• Citrus Oil Extracts – Can cause vomiting
• Coffee, Coffee grounds, tea and tea bags –Drinks/foods containing caffeine cause many of the same symptoms chocolate causes
• Eggs (raw) Raw eggs can cause salmonella poisoning in dogs. Dogs have a shorter digestive tract than humans and are not as likely to suffer from food poisoning, but it is still possible. If your dog has a partial blockage in their intestines where food can be trapped, e coli or salmonella could breed more easily. 
• Egg white contains the protein ‘avidin’ which forms a stable and biologically inactive complex with biotin. The avidin in egg whites will tie up the biotin so it cannot be used by the dog.”**
• Fat Trimmings – Fat trimmings can cause pancreatitis
• Iron – Human vitamin supplements containing iron can damage the lining of the digestive system and be toxic to the other organs including the liver and kidneys.
• Macadamia nuts – Macadamia nuts can cause weakness, muscle tremor and paralysis.
• Marijuana – Can depress the nervous system, cause vomiting, and changes in the heart rate.
• Milk and other dairy products – Some adult dogs do not have sufficient amounts of the enzyme lactase, which breaks down the lactose in milk. This can result in diarrhea. Lactose-free milk products are available for pets.
• Mushrooms – Acute gastric effects, liver and kidney damage, abdominal pain, nausea, salivation, vomiting
• Nutmeg – Tremors, seizures and death
• Tobacco – Nausea, salivation, vomiting, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat)
• Onion – Gastrointestinal upset, anemia, destroys red blood cells
• Grapes, Raisins, Prunes – Kidney failure, as little as a single serving of grapes or raisins can kill a dog.
• Persimmons Seeds – Can cause intestinal obstruction and enteritis
• Salt – Excessive intake can cause kidney problems
• Tomatoes – Tomatoes can cause tremors and heart arrhythmias. Tomato plants and the most toxic, but tomatoes themselves are also unsafe.
• Yeast Dough – Can expand and produce gas in the digestive system, causing pain and possible rupture of the stomach or intestines

Obviously DAIRY, RAW FLESH esp livers and fish full of mercury and other toxins.

QUORN – currently feb 2018 not considered toxic. However a fungus mushroom.,
YEAST DOUGH, (but not inert yeast as in Engevita)
CAYENNE PEPPER...burns the inside of stomaches of dogs and is STUPIDLY in the BARF diets to help apparently stated relieve the HEART pressure all the animal fats harm ...but most REPUTABLE vets are AGAINST BARF...not ONE vet organisation in the WORLD recommends or supports this diet...and ALL WARN AGAINST CAYENNE PEPPER ! 
Now on this page...I put the top lists I found ...and made some IN RED comments...because...I want to know...if dogs have had reactions to anything NOT on these lists...QUORN was the one that I discovered and added is a FUNGHI so MUSHROOMS are generally TOXIC to dogs and cats...but because in so many VEGAN IMMITATION MEATS I made like maybe others the mistake of making my dogs sick on Quorn..SO I SHARE !
I disregarded COCONUT oil listed in one list...but excess it is bad for PANCREATIC problem risk dogs / cats.
Any comments on EXTRAS or disagreements welcome if observed

People Foods to Avoid Feeding Your Pets

ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Phone Number: (888) 426-4435

Our Animal Poison Control Center experts have put together a handy list of the top toxic people foods to avoid feeding your pet. As always, if you suspect your pet has eaten any of the following foods, please note the amount ingested and contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.

Alcoholic beverages and food products containing alcohol can cause vomiting, diarrhea, decreased coordination, central nervous system depression, difficulty breathing, tremors, abnormal blood acidity, coma and even death. Under no circumstances should your pet be given any alcohol. If you suspect that your pet has ingested alcohol, contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center immediately.

Avocado is primarily a problem for birds, rabbits, donkeys, horses, and ruminants including sheep and goats. The biggest concern is for cardiovascular damage and death in birds.  Horses, donkeys and ruminants frequently get swollen, edematous head and neck.

Chocolate, Coffee and Caffeine
These products all contain substances called methylxanthines, which are found in cacao seeds, the fruit of the plant used to make coffee, and in the nuts of an extract used in some sodas. When ingested by pets, methylxanthines can cause vomiting and diarrhea, panting, excessive thirst and urination, hyperactivity, abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures and even death. Note that darker chocolate is more dangerous than milk chocolate. White chocolate has the lowest level of methylxanthines, while baking chocolate contains the highest.

The stems, leaves, peels, fruit and seeds of citrus plants contain varying amounts of citric acid, essential oils that can cause irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression if ingested in significant amounts. Small doses, such as eating the fruit, are not likely to present problems beyond minor stomach upset.

Coconut and Coconut Oil
When ingested in small amounts, coconut and coconut-based products are not likely to cause serious harm to your pet. The flesh and milk of fresh coconuts do contain oils that may cause stomach upset, loose stools or diarrhea. Because of this, we encourage you to use caution when offering your pets these foods. Coconut water is high in potassium and should not be given to your pet.

Grapes and Raisins
Although the toxic substance within grapes and raisins is unknown, these fruits can cause kidney failure. Until more information is known about the toxic substance, it is best to avoid feeding grapes and raisins to dogs.

Macadamia Nuts
Macadamia nuts can cause weakness, depression, vomiting, tremors and hyperthermia in dogs. Signs usually appear within 12 hours of ingestion and can last approximately 12 to 48 hours.

Milk and Dairy
Because pets do not possess significant amounts of lactase (the enzyme that breaks down lactose in milk), milk and other dairy-based products cause them diarrhea or other digestive upset.

Nuts, including almonds, pecans, and walnuts, contain high amounts of oils and fats. The fats can cause vomiting and diarrhea, and potentially pancreatitis in pets.

Onions, Garlic, Chives
These vegetables and herbs can cause gastrointestinal irritation and could lead to red blood cell damage. Although cats are more susceptible, dogs are also at risk if a large enough amount is consumed. Toxicity is normally diagnosed through history, clinical signs and microscopic confirmation of Heinz bodies.

Raw/Undercooked Meat, Eggs and Bones
Raw meat and raw eggs can contain bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli that can be harmful to pets and humans. Raw eggs contain an enzyme called avidin that decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin), which can lead to skin and coat problems. Feeding your pet raw bones may seem like a natural and healthy option that might occur if your pet lived in the wild. However, this can be very dangerous for a domestic pet, who might choke on bones, or sustain a grave injury should the bone splinter and become lodged in or puncture your pet’s digestive tract.

Salt and Salty Snack Foods
Large amounts of salt can produce excessive thirst and urination, or even sodium ion poisoning in pets. Signs that your pet may have eaten too many salty foods include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, elevated body temperature, seizures and even death. As such, we encourage you to avoid feeding salt-heavy snacks like potato chips, pretzels, and salted popcorn to your pets. 

Xylitol is used as a sweetener in many products, including gum, candy, baked goods and toothpaste. It can cause insulin release in most species, which can lead to liver failure. The increase in insulin leads to hypoglycemia (lowered sugar levels). Initial signs of toxicosis include vomiting, lethargy and loss of coordination. Signs can progress to seizures. Elevated liver enzymes and liver failure can be seen within a few days.  (edit IN MANY PEANUT BUTTERS  )

Yeast Dough
Yeast dough can rise and cause gas to accumulate in your pet’s digestive system. This can be painful and can cause the stomach to bloat, and potentially twist, becoming a life threatening emergency. The yeast produce ethanol as a by-product and a dog ingesting raw bread dough can become drunk (See alcohol).


Cats can be addicted to tuna, whether it's packed for cats or for humans. Some tuna now and then probably won't hurt. But a steady diet of tuna prepared for humans can lead to malnutrition because it won't have all the nutrients a cat needs. And, too much tuna can cause mercury poisoning. Remember the saying, "Honest as a cat when the meat's out of reach." Your cat will see an open can of tuna next to the sink as a dinner invitation.

Remember the saying, "Honest as a cat when the meat's out of reach." Your cat will see an open can of tuna next to the sink as a dinner invitation.

Milk and Other Dairy Products

What could be wrong with offering your cat a saucer of milk or a piece of cheese? Most cats are lactose-intolerant. Their digestive system cannot process dairy foods, and the result can be digestive upset with diarrhea.


Beer, liquor, wine, foods containing alcohol -- none of it is good for your cat. That's because alcohol has the same effect on a cat's liver and brain that it has on humans. But it takes far less to do its damage. Just two teaspoons of whisky can cause a coma in a 5-pound cat, and one more teaspoon could kill it. The higher the proof, the worse the symptoms. Grapes and Raisins

Grapes and raisins have often been used as treats for pets. But it's not a good idea. Although it isn't clear why, grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in cats. And, a small amount can make a cat ill. Repeated vomiting and hyperactivity are early signs. Although some cats show no ill effects, it's best not to give your cat any grapes and to keep grapes and raisins off countertops and other places accessible to your cat.


Caffeine in large enough quantities can be fatal for a cat. And there is no antidote. Symptoms of caffeine poisoning include restlessness, rapid breathing, heart palpitations, muscle tremors, and fits. In addition to tea and coffee -- including beans and grounds -- caffeine can be found in cocoa, chocolate, colas, and stimulant drinks such as Red Bull. It's also in some cold medicines and painkillers.


Chocolate can be lethal for cats. Although most cats won't eat it on their own, they can be coaxed to eat it by owners and others who think they are giving the cat a treat. The toxic agent in chocolate is theobromine. It's in all kinds of chocolate, even white chocolate. The most dangerous kinds, though, are dark chocolate and unsweetened baking chocolate. Eating chocolate can cause abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures, and death.

Candy and Gum

Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol can cause an increase in the insulin circulating through your cat's body, which will cause the cat's blood sugar to drop. Xylitol can also lead to liver failure. Initial symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and loss of coordination. The cat may have seizures soon after ingesting the xylitol, and liver failure can occur within just a few days.

Fat Trimmings and Bones

Table scraps often contain fat trimmed off of meat and bones. Both fat and bones may be dangerous for cats. Fat, both cooked and uncooked, can cause intestinal upset, with vomiting and diarrhea. And a cat can choke on a bone. Bones can also splinter and cause an obstruction or lacerations of your cat's digestive system.

Raw Eggs

There are two problems with giving your cat raw eggs. The first is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like salmonella or E. coli. The second is rare problem but that a protein in raw egg whites, called avidin, could interfere with the absorption of the B vitamin biotin. This can cause skin problems as well as problems with your cat's coat.

Raw Meat and Fish

Raw meat and raw fish, like raw eggs, can contain bacteria that cause food poisoning. In addition, an enzyme in raw fish destroys thiamine, which is an essential B vitamin for your cat. A lack of thiamine can cause serious neurological problems and lead to convulsions and coma.

Dog Food

An occasional bite of dog food won't hurt your cat. But dog food is not a substitute for cat food. They do have many of the same ingredients. But cat food is specially formulated for a cat's needs, which include more protein as well as certain vitamins and fatty acids. A steady diet of dog food can cause your cat to be severely malnourished.


Small amounts of liver are OK, but eating too much liver can cause vitamin A toxicity. This is a serious condition that can affect your cat's bones. Symptoms include deformed bones, bone growths on the elbows and spine, and osteoporosis. Vitamin A toxicity can also cause death.

Too Many Treats

Eating too much too often can do the same thing to cats that it does to humans. It can lead to obesity and even diabetes.

Yeast Dough

Before it's baked, bread dough needs to rise. And, that's exactly what it would do in your cat's stomach if your cat ate it. As it swells inside, the dough can stretch the abdomen and cause severe pain. In addition, when the yeast ferments the dough to make it rise, it produces alcohol that can lead to alcohol poisoning.

Your Medicine

Ingesting a drug prescribed for humans is one of the most common causes of poisoning in cats. Just as you would do for your children, put all medicines where your cat can't get to them. And never give your cat any over-the-counter medicine unless advised to do so by your vet. Ingredients such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen are common in pain relievers and cold medicine. And they can be deadly for your cat.


What not to feed your cat

Any food not specifically designed for cats can affect the digestive system, causing vomiting, diarrhoea, or loss of appetite. Here are some foods of particular concern.

1. Alcohol

As little as a tablespoon of alcohol can lead to problems for your cat. It can cause severe liver and brain damage.

2. Chocolate

Chocolate contains theobromine. While this bitter-tasting stimulant is found in all forms, it’s most concentrated in dark and unsweetened chocolate. Ingestion can cause heart problems, muscle tremors, or seizures. Chocolate also contains caffeine.

3. Coffee, tea and energy drinks

These contain caffeine — it can cause your cat to become restless, suffer from rapid breathing, heart palpitations and muscle tremors.

4. Dairy products

Some cats are lactose intolerant and if they eat dairy products it can cause vomiting and diarrhoea.

5. Fat trimmings, raw meat, raw eggs and raw fish

Can cause vomiting, diarrhoea or a painful condition called pancreatitis (from excessive fat) and there is also a risk of Salmonella or E. coli associated with these foods.

6. Grapes and raisins

Dogs can suffer acute kidney failure from eating grapes or raisins — and although toxicity in cats is only anecdotal we would strongly advise that you keep these foods out of reach of your cat.

7. Onions and garlic

All members of the onion family can cause problems if eaten in sufficient quantity. A little bit of onion or garlic in some sauce is not likely to cause any problems. However, eating a clove of garlic or a green onion may cause digestive upset. Eating some type of onion on a regular basis could cause anemia.

8. Xylitol

This is a sweetener used in a lot of sugar-free foods, especially chewing gum. There are no records of cats becoming ill from this product, but in dogs it can cause a severe drop in blood sugar — which can cause seizures and convulsions or even death — followed by liver failure. It’s better to be safe and not let your cat eat foods that contain this ingredient. Clickhere for our full article on xylitol.


Toxic to cats…additions…

alfalfa - toxic to cats & contains natural anticoagulant, Parsley, dandelion- both are diuretics.
Cranberries  ????
cod liver oil

vegetable & mineral oils- depletes the bodies stores of vitamin E
Again some of these were listed as not recommended for CKD cats




Chocolate contains two ingredients that are toxic in large quantities: a chemical called theobromide and caffeine

Toxic doses of theobromine are reported to be as low as 20 mg/kg, where agitation, hyperactivity and gastrointestinal signs (such as drooling, vomiting, and diarrhea - all which may smell like chocolate) can be seen. At doses over 40 mg/kg, cardiac signs can be seen, and include a racing heart rate, high blood pressure, or even heart arrhythmias. At doses of more than 60 mg/kg, neurologic signs can be seen, including tremors, twitching, and even seizures. Fatalities have been seen at around 200 mg/kg (approximately 100 mg/lb), or when complications occur.


oxalates are a real issue for people. too. Not everyone gets symptoms, but some do. curly kale is high oxalate kale is medium IF you boil it first. The boiling leaches out some of the oxalate. imho better to just feed low ox diet rather than trying to add ca and mag to offset. There are plenty of low ox healthy foods. so even for humans...there are warnings out there ref the push to say kale is the new superfood...taken over btw by coconut oil but lets not start that is an article stating the prob for humans. choose the type of kale wisely is best...and as for dogs..i would avoid totally.

How Oxalates are Ruining your Kale Shake Recipe

In this post I get into the dark side of raw kale, why it can be harmful in some cases, and how you can upgrade your next kale shake with my recipe!


“Due, perhaps, to the more discriminating habits and appetites, cats account for only 11–20% of reported animal exposures to potential toxicants, which is three times less frequent than dogs. The cats are independent and less restrict to a definite space. Consequently, they are more susceptible to become victims of poisoning when tasteless and odorless toxic agents are mixed with tasty foods. In spite of being very selective in their alimentary pattern, cats can not notice the presence of the poison mixed with food, as insecticide aldicarb that is often mixed with fish that has strong odour and flavour (Xavier et al., 2007). Cats may due to their grooming habits, be more susceptible to toxicants that come into contact with their fur, this is especially problematic with agents to which cats are exquisitely sensitive (e.g. ethylene glycol) (Gupta, 2007). The most common poisonous foods for cats are onion and garlic and other related root vegetables, green tomatoes, green raw pottatoes, chocolate, grapes and raisins, etc.

Some food may cause only mild digestive upsets, whereas, others can cause severe illness, and even death in pets. Knowing what agents have the potential to be involved in serious toxicoses should allow veterinarians to better educate their clients on means of preventing animal poisonings through the appropriate use of household products and the removal of potential hazards from the animals' environments.

Okay or no way – cranberries?

I would like to give cranberries to my dogs to prevent urinary tract infections. Is this safe?

To our knowledge, there is no data at this time indicating that cranberries (Vaccinium spp.) are toxic to dogs beyond the possibility of gastrointestinal upset that can be seen with ingestion of any plant material. But considering that 10 years ago the toxic potential of another fruit—grapes—was not known, we are not comfortable making any type of absolute determination on the safety of cranberries when given to pets. Instead, we recommend that you contact your veterinarian for advice on the best way to maintain your dogs' urinary tract health.
