Anyone know about sunflower seeds and shells? Jack is obsessed with the debris under our feeders. I am wondering if I should relocate them.

not sure about them? I would still be more concerned about the area being plaqued with excrement.Any animals in the area would be attracted there and leave behind their droppings. My wife wanted a bird feeder ,and that's one of the reasons we didn't get one. JMO

Adding Peace Lily to the list of plants that are toxic to dogs. Jammies decided to chew off a leaf of one a few months back and it made her sick!:sick:

The wild beasties would be there even if there were no feeders. We have wetlands bordering the backyard. Wildlife Central. :)

From what I have read, the insides are fine. No info about the shell, though. The one negative comment I could find was when a shell slid under a dog's gum, just like a popcorn kernel. Ouch!

We have to be careful because the holidays are coming. Poinsettias aren't poisonous, (despite what we have heard for years) but mistletoe and holly berries are.

I call Eli my frustrated horticulturist. He literally strips the leaves off various small evergreen shrubs in the park by our home. He puts his teeth at the base of the branch nearest the bark and pulls up with his head until all the leaves come off. He'll repeat and repeat along the bottom branches until they're bare and he cannot reach the higher branches. I always thought it was cute if a little weird. Even though he doesn't swallow the leaves could this be toxic? I know very little about plants so can't really tell the name of the shrub/bush.

Pam, I just found an article I had copied that said sunflowers and peanuts are bad for dogs. In fact, it looked like it is better to stay away from all nuts since it listed quite a few. I'm not sure where I got the information but I cut and pasted it into a document to save in my "dog info" file.

Thanks, Dave, I just cut & pasted that to print and put up on the fridge! I almost gave Abby a piece of avocado from my salad this evening so I was glad I had just read your article!

Great idea - this thread and making it a sticky so people can find it easily!!! Thank you Geri, Dave and Heather - and everyone else who has contributed. Good idea!

Susan, I copied and pasted Dave's list to a blank Word document and printed it from that to put in Augie's folder.

nicatine

I hate to admit it but I'm a smoker,
When I first brought Maddie home I treated her like a new born baby. I never smoked around her and always washed my hands.
I have noticed that the hand washing only is when I am touching a treat after I have smoked. And she comes outside with me when I smoke.
I wounder if the skin problems could be from nicotine
on my hands or second hand smoke.

Ps I finally found spell check right click:)
