Are gooseberries toxic to dogs?

Are gooseberries toxic to dogs?

No, Joanne, gooseberry doesn't show up on any of my poisonous plant lists. I'm not aware of any edible berries that are dangerous to Chief. Here is a very thorough review of toxicity - I should say the lack of toxicity - from gooseberries: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2013/707285/

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
