Section: Toxic food

Nutmeg. You may not realized this but high levels of nutmeg can be toxic, even fatal. The toxic principle is not well understood. Signs of toxicity include tremors, seizures, nervous system abnormalities or death.

Onions or Garlic. Dogs and cats lack the enzyme necessary to properly digest onions and this could result in gas, vomiting, diarrhea or severe gastrointestinal distress. If large amounts of onion or garlic are ingested or onions are a daily part of your dog's diet, the red blood cells may become fragile and break apart. This is due to the toxic ingredient in onions and garlic, thiosulphate. Signs can begin immediately after eating the onion or a few days later. Large quantities of garlic need to be ingested before signs of toxicity are seen. Severe anemias and even death can occur if the dog ingests lots of onions or garlic and receives no treatment.

All forms of onion and garlic are a problem. This includes raw, dehydrated, cooked, powders or those in foods. The most common source of onions for cats is in human baby food. Some baby foods have onion powder added for taste. When consistently fed baby food with added onion powder, signs of toxicity can develop. Many people use garlic pills as 'natural' flea control. The amount of garlic is low but if large amounts of the pills are ingested at one time, toxicity may occur.

Americans spend over $10 billion dollars a year on food for our pets. Despite buying the best food available, some pets would rather eat what we eat. However, certain foods can be dangerous to your pet, causing varying degrees of illness. Some food is toxic due to ingredients and some by improper cooking, storage or poor hygiene.

Alcoholic Beverages. Ethanol is the component in alcoholic beverages that can be toxic when an excessive amount is ingested. Pets are much smaller than us and can be highly affected by small amounts of alcohol. Exercise caution when drinks and pets are together. Toxicity can cause a wide variety of signs and symptoms, and may result in death. Signs may include odor of alcohol on the animal's breath, staggering, behavioral changes, excitement, depression, increased urination, slowed respiratory rate or cardiac arrest and death.

Apples, Apricots, Cherries, Peaches and Plums. Ingestion of large amounts of stems, seeds and leaves of these fruits can be toxic. They contain a cyanide type compound and signs of toxicity include apprehension, dilated pupils, difficulty breathing, hyperventilation and shock.

Avocados. The leaves, fruit, bark and seeds of avocados have all been reported to be toxic. The toxic component in the avocado is "persin," which is a fatty acid derivative.

Symptoms of toxicity include difficulty breathing, abdominal enlargement, abnormal fluid accumulations in the chest, abdomen and sac around the heart. The amount that needs to be ingested to cause signs is unknown. Do not feed your pet any component of the avocado.

Baking Powder and Baking Soda. Baking soda and baking powder are both leavening agents. A leavening agent is a common ingredient in baked goods that produces a gas causing batter and dough to rise. Baking soda is simply sodium bicarbonate. Baking powder consists of baking soda and an acid, usually cream of tartar, calcium acid phosphate, sodium aluminum sulfate or a mixture of the three. Ingestion of large amounts of baking soda or baking powder can lead to electrolyte abnormalities (low potassium, low calcium and/or high sodium), congestive heart failure or muscle spasms.

Chocolate. Chocolate, in addition to having a high fat content, contains caffeine and theobromine. These two compounds are nervous system stimulants and can be toxic to your dog in high amounts. The levels of caffeine and theobromine vary between different types of chocolate. For example, white chocolate has the lowest concentration of stimulants and baking chocolate or cacao beans have the highest concentration.

Depending on the type of chocolate ingested and the amount eaten, various problems can occur. The high fat content in chocolate may result in vomiting and possibly diarrhea. Once toxic levels are eaten, the stimulant effect becomes apparent. You may notice restlessness, hyperactivity, muscle twitching, increased urination and possibly excessive panting. Heart rate and blood pressure levels may also increase. Seizure activity may occur in severe cases.

Coffee (grounds and beans). Dogs that eat coffee grounds or beans can get "caffeine" toxicity. The symptoms are very similar to those of chocolate toxicity and can be just as or even more serious.

Fatty Foods. Rich and fatty food are favorites of dogs. They often get them as treats, leftovers or from getting into the trash. These fatty foods can cause pancreatitis. Pancreatitis can affect any pet but miniature or toy poodles, cocker spaniels and miniature schnauzers are particularly prone. Signs of pancreatitis generally include an acute onset of vomiting, sometimes diarrhea and abdominal pain. Abdominal pain is often evidenced by hunched posture or "splinting" of the abdomen when picked up. The dog may become very sick quickly and often needs intensive fluid and antibiotic therapy.

Dairy Products. Dairy products are not highly dangerous but can pose problems for two reasons. One is their high fat content and like other foods with high fat content, there is a risk of pancreatitis. The second reason is that pets poorly digest dairy products since they lack the enzyme required to digest lactose. This affects some pets more than others, and can cause gas to diarrhea. Small amounts of plain yogurt or cheese are tolerated by most dogs but it is probably safest to avoid dairy products altogether.

Grapes and Raisins. So far, about 10 dogs poisoned by grapes and raisins have been officially reported to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center. The amount of grapes or raisins ingested has been between 9 ounces to 2 pounds, and dogs ingesting these large amounts have developed kidney failure. Aggressive, and sometimes prolonged, treatment may be necessary to give the affected dog a chance at survival; without treatment death is possible. Despite testing, the reason for the kidney failure and the amount necessary for toxicity remains unknown. For now, any dog that ingests large amounts of grapes or raisins should be treated aggressively, so contact your veterinarian immediately if ingestion has occurred.

Macadamia Nuts. Macadamia nuts, also called the Queensland nut or Australia nut, can be toxic. The mechanism behind why these nuts are toxic is a mystery. However, it has been noted that as few as six to 40 nuts in dogs have caused severe toxic signs. Dogs develop weakness, depression, vomiting, difficulty walking, tremors, abdominal pain, lameness, stiffness and/or pale gums. The signs usually dissipate in 12 to 24 hours.

Moldy or Spoiled Food. Dogs love to get into the trash. A medical problem arises when the trash contains moldy or spoiled food. In addition to food poisoning, some pets can develop tremors related to the ingestion of certain molds

Dear Compassionate Pet Lovers ~    Together we can do this!!!  Help change the animal crulety laws frem archaic to "pay your dues in full, NOW!"


"One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it."
- Anthropologist Margaret Mead

The evening started with a break-in.  On August 21, 2006, Justin and Joshua Moulder, 18 and 17 years old, respectively, forced their way into their apartment complex community center. They then proceeded to trash the newly renovated building.  What continued next represented one of the most horrific cases of animal cruelty in the history of Fulton County.

The re-trial of Joshua and Jonathan Moulder,charged in a 10 count indictment with aggravated cruelty to animals, burglary, criminal damage to property in the second degree, making terrorist threats and cruelty to children in the second degree, will begin on January 3, 2007 at 9:00 AM EST with the selection of a jury.   It will be held in Courtroom 4-E of the Fulton County Justice Tower (136 Pryor Street SW, Atlanta, GA 30303, 404-730-4981).  Senior Assistant District Attorney Laura Janssen will again prosecute the case, assisted by Deputy District Attorney Ron Dixon and Fulton County DA Investigator M. C. Cox


Please join Columbus Top Dogs in supporting the Office of the Fulton County District Attorney to bring justice for this innocent victim of aggravated animal cruelty!

Soon after this heinous crime took place, the District Attorney for Fulton County, Georgia,  Paul L. Howard, Jr., wrote a letter to Georgia State Governor Sonny Perdue and asked that he propose legislation that would increase the penalty for the deliberate torture of animals as part of the 2007 legislative package. This is a very brave position to take and Mr. Howard needs our support.

Please take just a few extra minutes to write to Governor Perdue and let him know that Mr. Howard speaks for you too!

Talking Points:
• State your name and address - let them know that this case is getting national attention will be helpful
• Confirm you are following the Moulder brothers case where two boys tortured a puppy to death
• Mention that violence, toward humans and animals, is a blight that is taking on ever greater proportions in our society. Tougher laws and longer sentences are needed to abate this trend.
• Request Governor Purdue to strongly act on the request of Fulton County District Attorney, Paul L. Howard, Jr. and introduce legislation to increase the penalty for the deliberate torture of animals during the 2007 legislative session.

Thank you for helping to make a difference.

My input:  Please, be kind in your words when writing, emailing or calling; the DA is working VERY hard to go after these sick monsters and wants to be able to really punish them to the full extent of the law.  What a wonederful action to be part and parcel of!  Keep your   that the DA and Governor agree and that these sick killers do NOT get away with any other malicious and wanton murder. And, especially not this case!!

I would like to say "Thanks to EVERYONE" for all of your hard work and your loving and caring spirits towards "those that have no voice!"  I am proud to know so many of you, and always know you stand ready help in any way possible.   Again, thank you so much and from the bottom of my heart!!!!!

Dear Compassionate Pet Lovers ~
For those of you who do not receive the publication Pet Product News International (PPNI), I encourage you to read this month's cover article Pets: To Sell or Not To Sell  by Wendy Bedwell-Wilson:  
What is most interesting is the perspective shared by Darcy Howen, a franchisee of Petland in Rockford, IL:
"The reality is if pet stores that sold pets went away, the whole pet industry would collapse,"  he says.  "what would stores like Petsmart or Petco do?  Eventually the wouldn't have anyone to sell to." 
Mr. Howen goes on to explain: 
"Not everyone wants to buy someone's abandoned animal, or even a puppy from an unwanted litter.  They want a specific thing: They want a Labrador retriever, and they want it as an 8-week old puppy.  We have a responsibility to provide that."
Once you've read the article, I invite you to share your thoughts and concerns with the publication's editorial team - http://www.petproductnews.com/contactus.aspx.
Thanks for your kind consideration.

There are 45 cats and dogs for every person born. Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home. Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home. 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them. Opt to adopt. Don't buy from a pet store!

Hello Friends,

In order to really understand what I am about to present to you, I feel it necessary to explain two words/concepts.  It is not meant to reflect upon your intelligence in any way, but to serve as a reminder of the actual meaning of the words in their definitive sense and to pave the way to understanding what I am sharing with you.  Please, accept this in good faith---not as a demeaning lecture, as it is not that at all.  I simply wish to make clear that we are on the same page, so to speak. 

First: democracy...

democracy
[Gr.,=rule of the people], term originating in ancient Greece to designate a government where the people share in directing the activities of the state, as distinct from governments controlled by a single class, select group, or autocrat. The definition of democracy has been expanded, however, to describe a philosophy that insists on the right and the capacity of a people, acting either directly or through representatives, to control their institutions for their own purposes. Such a philosophy places a high value on the equality of individuals and would free people as far as possible from restraints not self-imposed. It insists that necessary restraints be imposed only by the consent of the majority and that they conform to the principle of equality.
 

Second:  Republic...

republic
[Lat. res publica,=public affair], today understood to be a sovereign state ruled by representatives of a widely inclusive electorate. The term republic formerly denoted a form of government that was both free from hereditary or monarchical rule and had popular control of the state and a conception of public welfare. It is in this sense that we speak of the ancient Roman republic. Today, in addition to the above characteristics, a republic is a state in which all segments of society are enfranchised and in which the state's power is constitutionally limited. Traditionally a republic is distinguished from a true democracy in that the republic operates through a representative assembly chosen by the citizenry, while in a democracy the populace participates directly in governmental affairs. In actual practice, however, most modern representative governments are closer to a republic than a democracy. The United States is an example of a federal republic, in which the powers of the central government are limited and the component parts of the nation, the states, exercise some measure of home rule. France is an example of a centralized republic, in which the component parts have more limited powers. The USSR, though in theory a grouping of federated republics and autonomous regions, was in fact a centralized republic until its breakup in 1991.
___________________________________________________________________________

Here are a couple very interesting reads (links below from the News Network here at Care2 and Wikipedia) I thought might intrigue you...or not.  I haven't followed the links yet, but they look promising for more info and to begin to understand the "big business" of government.  And it really is a business.  We no longer have a democracy---it is truly becoming a New World Order, in my humble opinion, and this is voiced by so many others in many different ways and all over the world---but the end product is the same: we are in deep trouble as a country. 

People talk of conspiracy theories by the government and others and that no one would be able to keep a secret (or secrets) this big from coming to light.  Why not?  If one needs to cover one's ass and continue to remain in power, but not in the light of day, wouldn't you do everything necessary to make sure the people were distracted, redirected and mislead to the point that they question themselves and what they see and think and feel....and NOT the politicians and the bankers and big business?  I'm not looking for conspiracies...information is coming to me and the disparate threads (a weird Gordian knot of sorts) are staring me full in the face; and I am scared for us and this country.  Never thought I would ever say that.  Never thought I would be getting involved this deeply regarding "theories" actually being facts for all to see.  I'm following bread crumbs into some very interesting places and what I am finding is an amalgamation of the movies Equalibrium and V: For Vendetta, with a dash of Devil's Advocate.  (I suggest watching all three movies, if you haven't seen them already.)  

Are you aware that there is a work in progress to erase the borders between the US, Canada and Mexico? 

You don't have to believe me...that's not why I'm writing this or including the links.  I'm doing it so that you have access to the info and then you can make up your own mind. And to write it out for myself so that I am able to begin the process of connecting the scattered dots. I have no intention of ever telling you what is right and wrong...unless you ask me my opinion...then it's open season; but until then, you are on your own to form your own conclusions or to ignore this if you so choose.  If this offends any of you I would take a hard look as to why that is occuring.  Are you afraid that this info might be correct....even a little bit?  Or are you so entrenched in your comfy world that you have no desire to see anything just a bit differently?  That is not meant to be insulting---I'm simply offering you an opportunity to see a possiblity.

Please keep one thing in mind as you read the links: history is ALWAYS written by the winners.  Personal perception/opinion intrudes upon our learning (usually by rote in the realm of history---or what we are force-fed via MSNBC and CNN and the ever-popular FoxNews) and always interferes with the reality of what actually happened.  It's our duty to root out the facts (note: I did not say truth---that's for phylosophy majors! And since every human has their own personal "truth," it's pointless to try and pin that particular enigma down when discussing history and the progression of the demise of our country) and if we continue to turn away from things that we just cannot deal with, we will never grow--personally or as a country.  Nor will we have a country to salvage or even hope to resurrect our freedoms and rights as citizens.

Right now so many people are walking about with their eyes wide shut (thank you Stanley Kubrick) in hopes that things will correct themselves with the '08 election.  We have to begin before that and continue afterwards.  So much damage has been done, it may  take decades to undo what has taken 8 years to destroy---not including that bloody trillion dollar deficit! 

If only curiosity drives you to read what I offer, then so be it; perhaps as you sleep at night, your mind will connect the dots and some things might begin to make a little more sense.  That is my hope for all of us. 


Thank you all who read this; I truly appreciate it.  Feel free to leave comments as I welcome feedback always...even if it's to tell me I'm off base here.  If that's the case, would you be kind enough to explain why?  I want to learn, and opposing viewpoints are a great way to do just that.

Hello again!  I need your help in getting the following articles to as many people here as possible.  I really don't like to ask this of you again, but this,  I feel, is very important information.  Please, help me accomplish this as you have recently done regarding the "muzzling" of scientists.  Thank you so very much for taking the time to note it and for all of your amazing comments.

I found some very interesting and important information regarding medicating Americans and links to the Bush family and pharmaceutical companies.  This includes severe reactions, sometimes resulting in homicide and/or suicide of patients being treated with anti-psychotics or anti-depressants.

From recent personal experience, I can attest to the accuracy of the information.  I was not on any of the medications spoken of, but the ones I was on actually went toxic in my brain/body by over-saturating me with severely high levels of seratonin and norepinepherin.  I almost committed suicide due to these dangerous and toxic levels of medications.  These medications are having the same (or worse) effects on people of ALL ages---not just adolecents, but every one who takes them.  Information has been hidden and buried and this information that I found is just the tip of the "medicating America iceburg."  We need to fight back on this, or we are in dangerous and tenuous positions.

Please, help me get this info out to as many people as we can.  This is something I am investigating rigorously and deeply (the unnecessary and dangerous medicating of Americnas) and it scares me...all of this seems to be to create a malaise and sheep-like behavior in this country.  Many people do not question the medications they are given and this, in turn, is creating an atmosphere of the mind control of this country's citizens.  To say this is a bad thing is a gross understatement and we are being manipulated and used as lab experiments in order to be "better behaved" and controlled so that we do not question what is happening all around us.

Be afraid...be very afraid.  Do research on ALL your medications and dig to find out the side effects.  You won't find the reality of the situation about your medications by reading the hand-outs or the package info---it has to be done via a back door on the net.

The more I dig, the more I find and the more concerned I am becoming.  So, I ask you yet again to note the following news articles and help me spread the word that we are under attack by the White House and Big Pharma companies.  This in NOT a conspiracy theory; it is an active, on-going and intentional act by the powers that are "governing" our country.

I thank you very much for any help and/or feedback you can offer!!!!

Thank you for your help and I look forward to your feedback and comments on this.  If anyone has more information to offer on this situation, please, do not hesitate to let me, and others, know.  I am collecting information and then will try to figure out what to do about it when I have enough evidence.

Hi, This is Mary and I have a friend in the country outside where I live that left me a voicemail regarding these dogs.


A friend of mine, Cathy, lives in the country outside London, OH, and has a neighbor giving away a very sweet 2 yr old male, a 7-ish yr old male and a 6-ish recent ex-mom female.  They are underweight and the woman is not going to alter them and wants them gone....can anyone help with these furkids?
Her contact info is:   Cathy Siders   draft@localnet.com    Please, feel free to pass this on and cross-post as needed.  She is terrified someone is going to snatch them up and continue breeding them.  They are outside and they are very sweet!

hugs...and thank you in advance....mary
