Pet Alert.....Onions Toxic to Dogs

Did you know that the onions we humans eat in many foods every day can be toxic to dogs? I sure didn't until tonight when I was searching for a recipe for homemade dry dog food and ran on to an article about onion toxicity in dogs. If you would like to read more about this just click on this link: Onion Toxicity in Dogs. I know one doggy for sure who won't be getting any more onions in his bites of people food anymore!

Thank you for sharing this I for one had no idea, not that he has eaten any onions, as far as I know, but worth knowing about.

Thanks so much for sharing this! I have never heard this & my two little dogs grab anything I drop in the kitchen which is usually while I'm chopping onions! Great info to know!

Debbie - first thanks for visiting my blog and signing up for my "Monthly Giveaway" and secondly, I just found this out myself a couple of weeks ago! We have a new baby, a black and tan cocker spaniel and I was checking on dog foods, etc., and found the same thing. But did you also know that potatoes are not good for them either??!! Another thing I found out was grapes (doesn't matter what color) are also very toxic, (like chocolate) to our wonderful little babies! Thanks for the great info! Good luck on the Teacup Light Giveaway, it ends on Friday, the 30th, so please check on Saturday, after 12 CST to see if you won! Mimi
