Hi Carol,

As I recall, cucumbers were on one of the lists too. I don't remember which one, but it was the ASPCA list that was rather comprehensive.

Hmmm... my guys LOVE their veggies. I think I'm going to ask the vet. I don't give them much but gosh, corn? There's corn in the cheaper dog foods. So that doesn't really make sense. I know we had a German Shepard years ago that loved cukes, and would eat a whole one at a go. Never hurt her, so I'm wondering if this is true. Going to see what I can find out.
Thanks Cookie.

I have given broccoli (both raw and cooked) to Punky lots of times and never had a problem. I never saw it on a list of toxic foods before. News to me. Thanks for the heads up.

I just checked a couple websites and broccoli wasn't on there, but some other things I have given Punky were such as apples, potatoes, corn, zucchini, etc. Who knew? I guess the best thing is not to feed them from the table at all really.

Ran across this on another forum, I knew some of these but not all. My dogs love veggies so I easily could have made the mistake of giving them broccoli when I was chopping it. WHY you would give them any human vitamins, turkey skin, stock cubes, or gravy powder and cod liver oil is beyond me. But who knows what some folks do?!!!


CHOCOLATE, ONION, GARLIC, NUTS, RAISINS, GRAPES, SULTANAS, STOCK CUBES, GRAVY POWDER, LARGE DOSES OF COD LIVER OIL, BROCCOLI, MUSHROOMS, RAW SALMON, TURKEY SKIN, VITAMIN D, SUGAR FREE ITEMS.
