Customer Question

Our dog ate about 5 lima beans about an hour ago. She seems fine. She's 7 years old. Thank you for your site.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if She 's will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about She 's?
Customer: She's very healthy and active. Forgive my question but I'm not seeking a veterinarian that will charge. Our family has been with one for a few months.

Lima beans are completely safe in dogs. There is no toxic potential here.

Unless they're moldy and we see a mold toxicity, there is nothing to worry about.
