 Is it true?

That dogs can’t have soy sauce? When I got Rikka, her breeder told me that dogs can’t have soy sauce, and he mentioned it several times. But I’ve never found another source on it besides him.

I already know about chocolate and grapes, and I’ve always been super careful not to leave any say sauce where she might be tempted.

Not only is soysauce ridiculously salty, but dogs lack the necessary gut juices to digest soy beans. Some crappy dog foods have it in small amounts and it goes straight through the animal.

There’s a bigger issue in giving a dog soy. You can compare feeding soy to a dog like putting a leopard gecko or bearded dragon on calcisand. It may look pretty/seem healthy, but if the animal consumes too much it can cause issues. In those lizards it causes impaction. In dogs it can cause bloat.

I knew about all three of those, and mostly understand why, but not with the grapes. So out of curiosity, why are grapes bad???????

Apparently they’re not bad for every dog. Just some have bad reaction. From what I’ve heard, it causes kidney failure sometimes.

So, you know. Not bad for every dog, but the risk of kidney failure means you probably want to make sure you’re dog doesn’t get grapes. =P

And thanks for the info on soy. For some reason, it didn’t really occur to me that soy sauce is made of soy, lol.

Anything citric is supposed to be bad for dogs as it damage’s there stomach lining is which i learned at college, i personally never had any hands on experience as i don’t allow my dogs or any visiting to get food i eat unless its raw/cooked eggs or raw meat.

Baked beans aren’t good for dogs either as they can’t digest them my lecturers Staffy was part of a unwanted litter (the dog got pregnant a week before she was due to get spayed and we don’t have dog abortions here) the woman that owned the dog neglected the puppies and fed them baked beans instead of giving them mums milk, needless to say Chilli was the only surviver of 10 pups she was rescued by the local animal service in Oslo. So i presume any other type of bean is due to them not being able to digest them?

I just won’t EVER allow him to eat grapes then (I do have them out a lot cuz my bearded dragon loves them!!!). And what person in the entire world would just feed their new dogs baked beans??? GOOD GRIEF!!!!!!!

Baked beans cant be digested by adult dogs let alone newborn puppies so it was a painful and quick death for them, disgusting since the mother was apparently "pampered like royalty" but she got rehomed also when Chilli was collected as the woman didn’t want a "tainted" dog nor a lactating female to care for *rolls eyes* some people

Ah Beardies are well cute my college had a pair a male and female named Clarabelle and Ozzy (siblings not a breeding pair). Clarabelle took a huge shine to me but she died as the already apparent "pre-washed" vegetable was pre-washed that good as it still had pesticide on it (a autopsy was done on her) then Ozzy died a matter of days later nothing popped up in his autopsy so was put down to loss of his sister... poor souls :(

Yep - they’re cute, but little stinkers :) I think a lot of times I’m dealing with a very small 2 year old!!! But even if baked beans weren’t toxic, who on earth would think they were okay for feeding puppies???

I didn’t word my sentence together properly she wanted the puppies dead she didn’t want to raise them until they were 8 weeks old to give them to a home and was apparently too ashamed to give them to a shelter so decided to kill them with baked beans.

Hopefully that is clearer ^^

The puppies would have died no matter what was fed to them if they were too young to take anything outside of milk. Their digestive systems would have had a fit. I don’t think the beans were entirely to blame.

Then again, I can’t confirm the bean knowledge.


But I felt it spiffy enough and on topic to mention that onions are another bad thing to feed dogs. Onions can mess up a dog like none other.

And potatoes. You can’t feed a dog potatoes because it causes severe constipation.




Lastly, about chocolate: it is not a by all end all killer of dogs. If a dog accidentally eats a KitKat, they aren’t going to be singing old yeller. I once knew a large dog that ate a whole box of chocolates and simply had the runs for a week. However young and small dogs are easily the most effected by chocolate and the theobromine (caffeine type) within. If any dog ingests straight powdered chocolate, such as that used in making hot chocolate or baking dishes, they are in the most danger and should see a vet. Chocolate is simply the most commonly known thing because in the 90s purse dogs were fed chocolate, cookies, and ice cream all the freaking time. People thought, "Well, since I can eat it and I like it, then foofoo will love it as well!" Then there was a mass of dogs with organ failures, digestive screw ups, shock cases, and death.

On a similar note, most dogs that get into medicine cabinets or chew up prescription bottles commonly die of a caffeine OD. Dogs can’t take caffeine as well as humans. The same with cats.

dogs arent suppose to eat onions either.. thought i would just add... lol

well my dogs eat everything that we drop and so far they are alive (i got this crazy puppy who once ate half an onion!! and a prune and strawberrys and grapes and basically everything) (and this other dog ate an entire bag of hersiess that was ment for halloween) but he lived to be 12 and so far this puppy is mighty healthy!

PS. we dont try to feed them, but if we or someone drops it, they eat it before we can pick it up...

My rat terrier, Lilly (who I started calling "Hoover" - you know, after the vacuum cleaner???) was the same way :) Once she got into a tube of neosporin and ate the whole thing. Talk about giving a dog the runs!!!!!!!!

You’re right - chocolate is just probably the most well known of all "no-no" foods for dogs........and I had heard that about onions

Ghastly - that’s even worse!!! Not wanting the responsibility so just taking care of it by feeding the beans. That’s MUCH worse than plain, sheer ignorance in my opinion!!!

I agree but it just goes to show you on what some people are like in my opinion bagging them and buring them or drowning would of been a quicker death instead of bloating them up for a couple of weeks until they pretty much exploded
