Bad foods, and what to look for?
So apparently, someone threw a food carton into our yard and Jaina ate some of it yesterday morning. I didn't find it until this morning. I was already concerned because last night she kept getting up and turning around in her crate and shaking herself off - I figured maybe it was because I'd bathed her and didn't have a sweater to put on her (she destroyed her sweater the day before yesterday). Also, she pooped in her crate yesterday, which is EXTREMELY unusual for her. Her poop appeared to have peppers in it - bell peppers.
Until this morning, on my way rushing out the door to work. I saw her licking a white food carton, and it all made sense. Now I'm incredibly worried. What if it had tomato in it? What if it had onion? She didn't have any blood in her stool, and other than being a watery mess, it didn't look any different than the previous times she had diarrhea. I'm taking her to the vet either way - I'd hate to find out she ate even the smallest amount of onion.
So, my question is, what other foods are bad for a dog? What signs should a person look for (outside of stuff like diarrhea, which I figured resulted from me giving her too many treats yesterday while training her - she's learning some "new" things, such as "heel" and "drop it", so right now I'm using a mixture of treats and a clicker. Unrelated!)?
Also, why the **** would someone throw a food carton into another person's yard?!
