Hops toxic to dogs


Recommended Posts

I was on another forum - someone just lost their Akbash to hop poisoning. It happened quickly. I found this information:




I don't think hop growing is too popular in our neck of the woods but I suppose in warmer climates, it's quite popular.


There are so many plants that are toxic - I guess this another to add to the list.

I don´t think you should be too concerned about hops growing in your neighborhood, it tastes bitter and is probably not very appetizing for a dog (or a human).

Notice this is posted on a hobby brewer´s board. If you brew beer you infuse hops in the sweet wort, so the spend hops are covered in that stuff, now that makes an attractive albeit dangerous snack for a dog.
