Are poppy seeds toxic to dogs? My puppy, who is 50 pounds, just ate 2 small poppy seed cupcakes.
Hello there,

That amount of poppy seeds in a dog this weight should not cause any problems at all. The seeds are not toxic but when ingested in very large amounts can cause diarrhea from the fat content. Most poppy seeds are processed so much there is not much left in them to cause problems.
