    Salt is not good for dogs generally. It is on the slide show of WebMD - see http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/ss/slides...ould-never-eat

    That's right. We don't need to add ANY salt, or even any herbs spices or pepper to dogs' food. They will get enough sodium in the meat and fish and vegetables in their food.

    Potatoes are not bad for dogs by the way. In moderation of course, as no dog is meant to have potatoes or any other carbohydrate as the main part of their diet. Both white and sweet potatoes are fine and okay to include with their food! But never give them any green or sprouting parts of a potato skin! Those are toxic, (for humans too.) Always cut those off, and always cook the potatoes first. Never feed them raw.

    I used to cook 'potato bread' for my dog, for the occasional treat (she loved it!) and it was ideal to put a tablet in small pieces of it, if ever she needed to take a tablet.
    I boiled and mashed a potato, added a little organic wholemeal flour and a little fine oatmeal, and some olive oil, made a dough, and rolled it out fairly flat, and baked it in the oven until browned.

    I once heard that apple seeds are bad for dogs, but one of my parent's dogs used to eat tons of apples from the orchard and seemed fine!?

    Apple seeds contain a small amount of cyanide. But the seed coating is so tough that it's possible the seeds could go straight through and come out the other end intact! In which case there would be no exposure to the poison. I remember trying an apple seed when I was a child and it tasted so bitter and horrible I had to spit it out. I guess if a dog just swallowed the seeds whole there may be no danger.
    But I suppose the wisest thing to be on the safe side is not to let them eat the seeds.

    However, my Misty adored apples. I cored them for her, and she had small pieces most days as a treat. Did her nothing but good. She would also grab apples from the ground in the orchard next to our house. I wasn't too sure about her eating too much apple at once so would try to take them off her to cut up and give her bits at a time later. But she would grab and run! I have actually seen her spit the entire seeds out of an apple she ate like that, so I imagine she might have bitten into one once and been horrified by how it tasted.

    Along with the list mentioned, would love to add that even cooked bones, cat food, alcohol, apple seeds too are dangerous for dogs.
