Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I understand that you are concerned because your pup ate food that was on top of a dried up water stain from Bougainvillea plant.
I truly would not worry about this.
Bougainvillea is considered a mildly toxic plant. It does not cause systemic illness or organ damage. If a dog eats enough of the plants or flowers they may have nausea, vomiting and diarrhea because it is an irritant.
I highly doubt water from the plant would have enough of the irritant effect from the plant to cause symptoms. Your pup should be fine.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
