Nutmeg...More Like NOTmeg!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE NUTMEG, but when doing research on the ingredients I want to include in our new Pumpkin Flax treat currently in development I discovered that this common spice is surprisingly dangerous to dogs.  It can cause tremors, seizures, central nervous damage, and if ingested in large doses and left untreated can lead to death.  Like many other dangerous foods for dogs, the toxic compound in nutmeg remains unknown, and it is not understood why it is such a poisonous food for dogs. 

With this said just be careful and avoid products that contain this ingredient.  If you think your dog has ingested a large quantity call your vet immediately.
