"Poisonous" does not mean deadly. Some manifestations of toxicity are subtle. The dose, as always, determines if a plant is safe source of nutrients or a toxic hazard.

BRIEF: My dog ate something and had a bad trip...

Question: please help - FiFi, our 80 lb. doberman "ate" something that resulted in what the ER vet could only describe as a "bad trip". Am wondering how to look up plants that are halucinogens in dogs - my 1st thought was morning glory, but the vines haven't even budded, let alone set seeds - how do I find symptoms associated with each plant listed? Answer: What symptoms did she have that made you think she was halucinating? How to look up? I would start with general (including) halucinagens... The vine still could have had some lysergic acid or derivatives in it. Also, fescues, rye, rye grass, etc. can have ergot infections that produce LSD, and some of the stipas (sleepygrass) have these compounds as well. Jimson weed and other daturas have some serious halucinagens as well.
