Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence so that you have a prompt reply to your question. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) When was the seed consumed?2) Any vomiting seen yet?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.
Sago palms are extremely toxic to dogs and ingestion of any part of the plant can cause death. The seeds are considered the most toxic part of the plant.It's imperative that Maynard see a veterinarian promptly. If you need help finding one in your area, please reply with your city, state and zip code and I'll be happy to help you. There's more information here from Poison Control:
