A few people asked about walnuts - I know I'd seen that they aren't good for dogs, apparently because of a fungus. Here's a link, there's a bunch more out there (just google for dogs poisonous food dogs walnuts)

And here's an article that talks about feed dogs citrus. Not truly poisonous, but can cause gastrointestinal irritation:

Aw phooey. And I was going to let Loki join in our New Years celebrations! LOL. Just kidding. Not poking fun, but that just struck me as funny.

BTW, concreterose, thanks for the garlic info. I give Loki garlic maybe once per week. I guess I should ease off for winter.

Daisy likes all fruits veggies and nuts pretty much. She'll drool like a mofo if I have a bowl of fresh pineapple though. She gets banannas alot too and carrots as calorie-less chew toys at times.

How about eggplant? For whatever reason, Redhead seems to like it. Then again, he likes about everything.

I give Redhead a chopped-up garlic clove once a week or so, and also a raw egg once a week. I figure wild dogs steal and eat eggs whenever they can.

Are these bad ideas? Or should I just cook the egg?

I've been giving Jaydee banana peels and she eats them! I just wonder if they are bad for her or not?

Raw eggs Contain an enzyme called avidin, which decreases the absorption of biotin (a B vitamin). This can lead to skin and hair coat problems. Raw eggs may also contain Salmonella.

Bruce's fave is bannanas. I stuff his kong with half a bannana and he's a happy boy.

I give the kids raw eggs about once or twice a week. They love em, the eggs have DHA in them too. Bruce will even eat the shell, but not my Wally butt. She lets Bruce eat her shell. I've read BARF info that says it's good for them. :tongue:

I know many use garlic for flea control yet this list says it can be toxic?

You should only use it in small amounts and then go off it for a while. It lowers the risk. :-)
