Two Veterinarians Advice Regarding 29 Substances That Dogs Should Never Eat

During this season of rich and plentiful foods, we often want to share the wealth with our beloved pets. Yet it's not fun later when a dog has digestive issues as a result of what they've eaten; both for the dog and the owner. Even worse of a scenario is feeding something to the dog that could put his life at risk. 

Such a deadly reaction can happen with xylitol, pictured below in the form of peanut butter. A sweetener often found in nut butters, chewing gum and other products labeled "sugar free," the substance can cause vomiting, lethargy, stupor, seizures, and coma in dogs. It can also cause liver failure due to excessive insulin release and hypoglycemia. Surely nothing to mess around with when it comes to our furry best friends.

I was peeling and slicing apples for pie. My dog kept begging, since she knows that when I have boiled chicken bones for stock, she gets to eat the boiled carrot and the skin and scraps of meat.
I decided to give her a slice of apple, which I put in her bowl.
She eagerly sniffed it, and then gave me such a *look* of betrayal! I almost cut myself with the knife from laughing.

I stopped reading after the first entry on apple cores. Has anyone out there ever tried to feed them to a dog? Has anyone had a problem with a dog that wanted to eat them?
