Hello and thank you for your question.


Ladybugs are not generally toxic, however, if ingested in extremely large quantities, there have been cases that developed some intestinal bleeding and toxicity. As long as your dog is not ingesting them in huge numbers, it should be fine.


If you have any additional questions, please let me know...
