This weekend I made home made chicken and dumplings while my grandmother and aunt were visiting. Anyway, as usual when ever I make a stock or broth I use that to wet the pups food with instead of water. Well, when you make a stock or broth you generally put veges in it for flavor, right? Do you think that the bad stuff in the onions leaches out into the stock? I know onions are bad for dogs but it never occured to me until the other night. Since I don't very often have homemade stock on hand, the kids don't get it very often and they've never shown anything but gratitude (right) about getting this treat. The only side affect I've ever notice is excessive drool! Broohoohoo!

What do you think?......dangerous or not?

Thanks, Heather

My four Bassets seem NOT to have any side effects from onions in their food. IF they get some stock or sauce with onions in it, they certainly drool a lot, beg for more a lot etc. but that is it.

Unless you have a dog with sencitive stomach, it shouldn`t be a problem.

I asked my vet about onions and she said that onions can cause anemia in dogs. I doubt that a couple in stock would hurt them though. In fact, Franklin and Eleanor love my chicken soup!
