Don't get me wrong, some of these things are bad for dogs, but some less so. Take onions as an example. If you read one of the most famous working gundogs books, P.R.A. Moxon's book Gundogs, Training and Field Trials, first published in 1952, onions form part of his dog's staple diet!! We do now know that in fact onions cause a lowering of the haemoglobin in the blood. But you do need to feed an awful lot to cause any problem. If you give your dog a little of your leftover liver and onion, and you miss removing a little of the onion, no problem! The same thing applies to garlic with very many people regularly giving their dog garlic tablets as an anti flea precaution.

Other foods on a similar line is Apple. The pips actually contain cyanide. But your dog would need to eat an orchard full before the level became toxic.

Far more dangerous is corn on the cob. Dogs cannot process this and if the swallow a largish piece of the cob the stomach cannot process this and it can get stuck in the intestines and cause a blockage requiring an operation to clear. If you feed a little of the sweetcorn it's self, as in the bags of frozen mixed veg, don't worry, but when you go out on poo patrol you will see the corn in the poo, totally unprocessed!
