Topic: OT: Toxicity of Coffee for Dogs, Was: Re: +Stoopid question open bag opened during shipping (17 msgs / 310 lines)
1) From: Lynne Biziewski
Yeah. Along with onions, grapes (one of our dogs used to steal them off the
vine - he was very sick after - don't know if that was the cause) &
definately those stolen laps out of my coffee cup - and rocks. My Emma tried
to eat a ROCK yesterday...
Keeps me on my toes, that girl!

What about roasted coffee?  And then brewed coffee?  Sometimes my g/f
will leave her cup on the endtable and the one dog we have will start
taking some sips...

It is the caffeine that is toxic. This URL will get you started on this subject.  It is a long list and the 
amount to causer a toxic reaction is dependent to a large extent on the body weight of the animal.  cats 
and dogs have different poisons so they are not equivalent although they do overlap somewhat.

Yes, of course - chocolate... didn't know about ibuprofen. Rocks are
definately not good (man, I have to keep my eye on Emma ALL the time...)
The weight of the dog is crucial, but then my Emma has been getting seizures
(unknown source[s]), so anything could also trigger the seizure. So I have
to be concerned about the normal toxicity,and making sure something she eats
doesn't set one off. But otherwise, she's been fine (whew!)
She also will steal a lap of coffee if we aren't careful - man, months ago
when she had JUST had her first, really serious seizure she got a WHOLE CUP
- but that was because a now-former member of the household was seriously
lax in keeping it away from her...
We now have a habit of keeping everything high above her... but she is
clever..

I'm not sure about ipbuprofen's toxicity for dogs, because I know  
vets do use NSAIDs to treat arthritis in large dogs. I do know that  
entire class of drugs is toxic to cats (although years ago our vet  
treated our geriatric cat's "saddle thrombus" bloot clot with half a  
baby aspirin every other day--it extended her life for two years  
before it stopped working and she threw another clot, this time to  
the brain, at age 18).

Can you please take this thread to the group

            ?
You've bored the heck out of the coffee list.
I am not a regular whiner, but this is just stupid.
Thanks,
Brett

Thanks everyone.  I too am afraid of my dear Fluffy getting sick.
I could use the list's help and advice.  If I roast the Colombian to Full
City only, and then Fluffy eats it, I obviously have a problem on my hands.
You can help.  I am looking for a good, coffee based rub so I can make my
Vietnamese Celebration BBQ.  My real concern is this:  Which wood should I
use to smoke Fluffy, and will 3 hours be enough time?
Thanks,
Brett

Brett,
Get up the wrong side of the bed or a stinker find it's way into the grinder
perhaps?-) Regardless it's official, your Curmudgeon apprenticeship is
complete and are forthwith granted Journeyman Curmudgeon status. But still a
ways to go for Master Curmudgeon certification. Though must say that last
post excellent form:-)

Of course, we've never been bored by the on-going whine about Zass grinders,
Central American vs. African, or espresso vs. drip.
Glad to see the list patrol is alive and well!  :)
I'm actually glad to see the info.  So keep being a part of the community,
Lynne.

I just wanted to say thank you for the dog-first-aid-911 link.  It
will come in good use!
Also, if this topic was so boring, there sure were a lot of people
that replied to it!  :-)  I think it's good knowledge to have because
this is ultimately related to coffee....and this list is for coffee...
I don't know, I just found this thread helpful...
Thanks,
Mike

No problem Mike.  It is nice to know what items that humans eat or drink just might result in serious 
problems for our house pets.  Some of these things you do not find out until its too late.
I even found out that excessive coffee can cause boorishness.

Thank you, Brent. As long as I'm drinking SM's coffee (and as long as I have
a computer), I'll be here. It'll take a heck of a lot more to get rid of me!
(don't want to give anyone any ideas...)
