My 2 yo Pembroke welsh Corgi just chewing a seedling starter…

Customer Question
My 2 yo Pembroke...

My 2 yo Pembroke welsh Corgi just chewing a seedling starter for tomato seed in biodegradable pot. Seedling looks like a dry cork. She chewed into the 2 1/2 inch by scraping across with teeth. No bites just scraping her teeth into it. Is this poisonus

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the Pembroke Welsh corgi ate?

Yes a seedling starter that looks like a flat 2-3 in cork looking . Dry looks like fine wood particle

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Pembroke Welsh corgi?

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with this concern about your Corgi.

There shouldn't be an risk of toxicity for her; neither the pot nor its contents will pose any issues for her. No action on your part is necessary.

Had she eaten more of the pot, then diarrhea might (and I emphasize "might") develop in 12-24 hours but this doesn't seem likely since she didn't eat the pot.

I hope this helps to reassure you. Deb
