don't mix because chocolate contains theobromine, a substance that causes rapid heart rate and central nervous stimulation, probably leading to seizure and even death.

An overdose of onions can also cause toxicity in dogs that can prove fatal.
Signs may include listlessness, lack of interest in food, labored breathing.
Garlic also pose problems for dogs as it contains thiosulfate which produce acute toxicity .
Avocado plants , and the avocado fruit itself, contain persin , a substance that can cause vomitting and diarrhea in dogs.

Although apples are not toxic but the seeds of the fruit contain cyanide and may be dangerous. Likewise, the pits of peaches and plums contain cyanide and can be toxic.
