Are snapdragons poisonous to dogs?

by Dora on February 20, 2008

If you were to ask your vet about snapdragons, you’d probably be given the same response you’ve been receiving from our fellow canine friends in the comments section of the other snapdragon posts: that snapdragons are perfectly harmless. But what if your dog is going through a stressful period, like a new home, separation from family, illness, a new medication, or just general stress? Are snapdragons safe for dogs to eat? What if your dog really, really loves them? We don’t really know!

So let’s discuss some questions that have been left unanswered by our previous posts:

How do you determine if a plant is safe for your dog? Is there any research on the toxicity of snapdragons specifically?

I don’t see any mention of the toxicity of snapdragons in my research, so I’m going to focus on the toxicity of the sap. I think it is safe to say that most plants are safe, in general. This article is quite helpful in that respect. In fact, there is no specific article that discusses snapdragons, but I can’t find a single one that mentions any sap that is toxic to humans.

Do all species of snapdragons contn toxic sap?

Yes. According to this article from the US National Park Service, the sap of all snapdragons is toxic to humans.

How toxic is the sap?

The sap is sd to be “poisonous enough to kill a horse.” They also say that “The sap of the snapdragon can kill a person within two hours.” It is toxic, but not that dangerous!

How toxic is the juice?

According to the same source, “The sap can cause the mouth to swell and blister, the eyes to burn and swell, and the skin to crack, peel, and bleed.” So, in answer to that question, there is no difference.

Does it matter what kind of snapdragon you eat?

No. You could be eating the red ones, and they would still be poisonous. You could be eating the blue ones, and they would still be poisonous. You could even be eating the green ones, and they would still be poisonous. Just like in humans, it doesn’t matter what kind of plant you eat. What matters is what the plant produces. This has to do with the active component of the plant, which is the toxin. As long as it is the same toxin that causes the symptoms of poisoning, whether it is derived from the sap or not, it is still the same poison.

Can dogs eat toxic sap?

No. The sap of snapdragons is toxic to humans, but it is not poisonous to dogs.

Do all parts of the snapdragon contn sap?

This is something that I don’t know. I can only speak from the information that is avlable online, but I’ve noticed that most sites refer to the “juice.” I’ve also heard that snapdragons are sold with leaves attached, but not stems. Is it safe to eat the leaves of the snapdragon if you don’t want to eat the sap? I don’t know. I would have to do some more research to find out.

You are probably right in saying that you should not feed them. I am also sure that there are some people that do feed it to their dogs, and if they can eat it, there is no reason that I cannot. It seems to me, though, that the toxicity of the sap is not the same as the toxicity of a toxin, like alcohol, because the toxicity of the sap lasts a shorter time, and can be easily avoided by not eating the leaves.

I am not really sure about this, but I do not think that your dog will suffer ill effects as long as you are not eating them. This is also true if you are eating them, as long as you are not eating the sap. It is not really like eating a poison, or a toxin, because you do not get ill if you do not eat the leaves.
