<<Misc: Onions, especially raw onions, have been shown to trigger hemolytic
anemia in dogs. (Stephen J Ettinger, D.V.M and Edward C. Fieldman, D.V.M.
's
book: Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine vol. 2 pg 1884.) Also: "Six
Cases of Heinz Body Haemolytic Anaemia Induced by Onion and/or Garlic
Ingestion" - CM Edwards and CJ Belford Aust.Vet.Prac. 26 (1) March 1996,
18-22.>>

Someone else on another list mentioned this, too.  I found it very
surprising!  Do you have a copy of the article, and could you fill us in on
what kind of dose they were talking about?  I would be curious to know if
these six cases (or however many of those were garlic reactions rather than
onion reactions) were an isolated thing, or if additional research has
identified any kind of pattern.  Are there any other references listed on
the abstract?
