The main ingredients of alcoholic beverages are among the top plants that are toxic and even poisonous to dogs. For example, wine, is made out of grapes that are toxic to many dogs (the reason why is still a mystery to veterinary science).
Another example is beer.Hops constitute a primary ingredient in the production of beer, and similarly to grapes, it is unknown why they are toxic to dogs. Nevertheless the consumption of hops poses physical danger to many canines, such as vomiting, temperature, labored breathing and even kidney damage.
When it comes to consuming an alcoholic beverage, even a small amount of alcohol can make a dog suffer potential coma, kidney failure, and heart failure. Severe indications of alcohol poisoning in dogs can manifest itself within as little as one hour following consumption.
