Grapes and raisins can cause kidney damage in dogs and lead to kidney failure and death.
From what I've ready they don't know why this happens. They have tested for pesticides, fungicides and other contaminants and so far haven't come up with a cause. For more info read The Wrath of Grapes
Our dogs love veggies too. Hubby absent mindedly left some broccoli florets where they could get them - they loved it, but the green poison gas cloud that hovered over our house that night was really gross :shock:
Lightning loves carrots. He tends toward obesity, so I really should keep more around as snacks for him. But he also LOVES apples, and I have several apple trees in my backyard, so right now he'll eat two or three a night. He always brings them in and shows them to me first. Then I have to make a big fuss over what a nice apple that is, then he eats it. They don't seem to bother his stomach at all, even when they're small and green.
We are using carrots for Ernest to keep him happy and to help with teething. He also loves apples (cut up without the seeds), frozen bananas, strawberries (self serve) and raspberries (we cut out the self serve after some raspberry abuse).
He is even okay with zuchinni and green beans.
TH made salsa and he insisted on tasting it. It was not a success.
We planted two extra rows of carrots for ernest. I hope he appreciates them.
