what not to feed dogs

Are there any fruits or veggies that I cannot feed my puppy besides tomatoes and onions? She loves fresh fruit but I don't want to give her anything that could cause diarrhea.

Anything in the Onion family is bad, so leaks as well. Garlic is in the same family, but not as bad, so feed in moderation.

I was told tomatoes are ok, just not the leaves or stems.

Brocolli is ok, but in moderations as well.

Recent studies say grapes (and therefore raisins) are bad...

I have heard that grapes are bad, but does anyone know why? My dog loves grapes, and has never had a bad reaction to them (but she only eats a few a few times a day).
Also, why is brocolli bad? Just curious...

I think part of the reason grapes etc are bad is because of the seeds. We treat the vegetables and fruits with chemicals, and the fruit or veg stores the chemicals in the seeds.

I would think that just like for kids, raisins would be bad for their teeth.

Occasionally I give my little Chi some of those raw baby carrots. He seems to love them as a special treat (maybe once a week) and it hasn't seemed to give him any digestive problems at all.

Grapes are bad because they can supposedly cause a form of anemia. However, I have yet to find two websites stating the same thing about grapes. For saftey, i would say no grapes.
Here is a link to the Animal Poision Control Centre, they have al ist of items that you should not give your pets; http://www.aspca.org/site/FrameSet?s...nts/M01947.htm
