Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. Sorry no one has gotten to you yet. You can relax, though, the Giant Palm Tree is not considered toxic to dogs. Other species of the palm, especially Sago Palms, are extremely toxic, but the Giant Palm is not. There shouldn't be anything to worry about here. Always monitor for any vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite or abdominal pain; but I would be surprised if you see any problems. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
