Food A number of food items can be harmful to dogs and these can cause a number of different symptoms, ranging from vomiting and diarrhoea, to more severe effects such as seizures or kidney failure, depending on what is eaten.  Foods that should be completely avoided include:

  • Chocolate
  • Raisins, currants and sultanas
  • Grapes
  • Christmas cake and Christmas pudding
  • Fruit cake and stollen
  • Mince pies
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Blue cheese
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Leeks
  • Shallots and chives
