Bread Dough

Bread Dough

Raw bread dough with yeast can be dangerous for all pets. The dough can rise and release gases in their stomach, which could damage internal organs and cause difficulty breathing. Active yeast also produces alcohol, which can cause coma, seizures, or even death.

Grapes and Raisins

Grapes and Raisins

Grapes and raisins can be extremely toxic to dogs, but not always. One dog might get really sick and develop kidney failure after eating only a few grapes or raisins, but others might not be affected at all. Because you don't know how your dog will react to grapes and raisins, it's best to keep them away from all dogs. There's no sense in risking it.

Chewing Gum

Chewing Gum

Xylitol is the ingredient used in sugar-free chewing gum to make it sweet, and in dogs, the chemical plays a nasty trick. The dog's body thinks sugar levels are high, so insulin is released and blood sugar drops to dangerously low levels that may cause death.
