Will Catnip harm my chihuahua? She got a hold of the cats toy which is filled with catnip, I know

the cat loves the thing but is it safe for a dog? I took it away from her but just want to make sure.
Slap Daddy:

Believe it or not some of the most common garden plants are also the most deadly. Tomato plants, both the leaves and the stems, can be toxic to dogs. St. John’s Wort, an herbal plant, is very toxic leading to vomiting and seizures. Other garden plants that can be problematic include:
· Apricot
· Avocado
· Black Cherry
· Black Walnuts
· Castor Beans
· Catnip
· Chokecherry
· Eggplant
· Garlic
· Mushrooms
· Mustard plants/greens
· Onion
· Peach
· Plum
· Potato
· Pokeweed
· Spinach

I found this here http://ezinearticles.com/?Deadly-Indoor-And-Outdoor-Plants-Harmful-To-​Dogs&id=437633

i thiink you should call a vet.I saw some that support this and some that ioppose this.

Asher:

Thanks Slap-D She already has seizures So I have to watch her diet as it is. I appreciate the site very much.

Robert:

garlic?wow. I give my dog garlic powder and garlic tablets, human ones. But its not the plant. Who knew? Shes a hogdog, I think shes got an iron stomach. she has eaten wild oinion plants though. Hmmmm. No wonder shes nuts.

Asher:

@ Littlewing That's a good name for mine "hogdog" she'll eat anything that won't get her first:):)

Robert:

they sell garlic with yeast tablets for dogs, shes always had them. All my dogs do

Robert:

Im going to HAVE to say YES, its Safe. Catnip is also a consumable tea, for humans, my cat eats hers, people even have smoked it, for relaxation. Please dont be alarmed, I think your dog will be fine playing with a catnip toy. . Chocolate, is the thing thats harmful to dogs.

Asher:

Thanks Littlewing..I worry because she has seizures and she is getting up there in age. But she seems alright. She didn't have the toy for that long just wanted to make sure:):)

Asher:

Check comment under SD:):)

Robert:

I still say, its ok

J Man:

so long as your chihuahua does not have allergies to certain ingredient she will be fine just watch herif it makes you feel better

Asher:

Thanks Lauraski. That's about all I can do. She has seizures so that was my concern.

HaitianDiva:

I think you should keep an eye on her for the time being considering her small size really anything can cause her problems. Just as some of the others stated Chocolate is a Big NO, just as you should also keep her away from onions, garlic, raisins. These are deadly to our wee dog friends! Onion and garlic causes the blood in dogs to just explode with oxygen, they can't handle it and it kills them. If you give her any scraps with any of this in it, stop. I completely stopped cooking with onions and if something has garlic in it, my dog doesn't get it. I won't take the chance. Some say low amounts won't hurt, but is it worth the chance. I don't think so. Eggs are real good for your baby! I like making a mushed up egg for mine, gives their coat some good shine. Brewers Yeast is good too and fleas HATE it!! Catnip is also good if you have a child that has hives.

Robert:

in 1st post, well NOBODY give their dog aan entire garlic bulb, but, read on. http://www.earthclinic.com/Pets/garlic_for_dogs.html

Asher:

Thank you for responding. I appreciate all this information but it seems everyone got off track with my question. It was about "Catnip". She already has seizures and I try to watch what she eats, this was an accidents with the catnip toy she found laying around for my cat. But thank you for all the other input..:):) I will check out the eggs though.

Vanessa:

Catnip is a member of the mint family and my inclination is to say that it would not be harmful to your dog. However, slap_daddy makes a good point in that lots of things that are not harmful at all to humans can be deadly to pets. Small dogs are especially susceptible. Call your vet to be sure.

Livin' the dream:

best answer.

Asher:

Thanks just me. She seems to be fine now but will have to keep the cat toys picked up. My little dog will eat or try to eat anything that isn't nailed down;;:):) LOLO

Vanessa:

She looks like a happy little girl! She is lucky to have you for a mom, junebug.
