But there are some goodies out there that can be a nightmare for you and your dog if he or she breaks into them.
So lets spread the word and remind our friends and family what NOT to leave out this week -- or all year long. This is with the help of PetMD.com.

2. Most nuts. PetMd says walnuts, pecans and especially macadamia nuts are toxic to dogs. Those nuts that aren't toxic, however can cause other problems. They can cause digestive obstructions, or even gastroenteritis or pancreatitis. This all depends on the size of the dog, how healthy they are to begin with and how much they eat. So it's best to keep dogs away from nuts.

4. Chocolate. Last but not least. But would you believe it's not as bad as the previous three? I mean, it can be, don't get me wrong. But not all chocolate is as toxic. If your dog snags a couple fun size Three Musketeer bars, he or she will probably be ok vs. a whole bag of dark chocolate. Of course this all depends on other factors involving your dog though. So don't be feeding your dog chocolate!
Head to PetMD to check out the site's chocolate toxicity meter. This will give you a better understanding of how toxic different types of chocolate can be, and what to do if your dog eats any.
