The most poisonous substances for dogs are Antifreeze, acetaminophen
(Tylenol), and the Yew tree family.  The following provides a list of the
toxity levels and the substances. Note most of these are also toxic for cats,
babies, and small children.
     
     Theobromine (found in chocolate)  150mg/kg body weight
          20 oz Milk Chocolate / 20 # dog flesh
          2 oz Baker's Chocolate / 20 # dog flesh
          6 oz Semisweet Chocolate / 20 # dog flesh
     Antifreeze  2oz/kg body weight
     Aspirine 2 aspirins
     acetaminophen 2 regular strength (highly toxic substance)
     naproxen, phenylbutazon, and ibuprofen work too. note that ibuprofen
which is sugarcoated are attractive to dogs.
     
     Yew less than 2oz/0.05#  Note this is HIGHLY toxic.. to almost anyone.
The red berry flesh is not toxic, but the pits inside the berries and the
leaves, bark etc. are indeed poisonous. Also vetrinarians never find this
substance in animal corpses unless they cut open the stomach and find it
there.
     
     Rhododendron, digitalis, and azaleas are also toxic, but rather bitter.
death by rhododendron in dogs is less common. actually only 2/425 poisoning
deaths was by rhododendrons.
     
     Nightshade. of course.
