There are foods that a dog can have and there are foods that a dog can’t have. Some of the dangerous foods that dogs should never ingest are chocolate, onions, grapes, raisins, certain types of gum, sweeteners, and macadamia nuts. These foods should never be ingested, and if ingested take the dog to the vet. If the dog is vomiting and is having diarrhea it can become life- threatening for the dog.
