Bones: Bones easily splinter and can cause serious health problems for your pet.

Candy: Mainly chocolate—which is toxic to dogs, cats and ferrets—and any candy containing the toxic sweetener Xylitol.

Citrus and pits: Keep foods containing citric acid away from your pets. Foods such as cherry pits, peach pits and apple seeds contain essential oils that have the ability to cause irritations and even central nervous system depression if a significant amount is ingested.

Coffee: Grounds, beans and chocolate-covered espresso beans.

Eggs (raw)

Grapes and raisins: These can cause kidney problems.

Leaves and stems: From vegetables like tomatoes.




Trash: Pets who engage in trash-digging can accidentally eat foods that are possibly poisonous to them. Keep trash out of reach so your pet can’t get to it.
