my 3 month old puppy is eating my aloe plant. Is it dangeous?
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the aloe vera plant is toxic to dogs. The principal components are from a class of chemicals called saponins. Saponins have a foaming characteristic and are present in the aloe vera plant.
Stop your dog from eating it right away and if he starts to have diarrhea or vomiting, you need to get him to a vet right away.
