Berries on Monkey Grass

I recently noticed that my dog was eating the berries that are growing on my monkey grass. Will they hurt her? She seems to be having lots of stomach problems and I’m wondering if this is this cause.

Though they are not considered to be life threatening, the berries on monkey grass are mildly toxic if eaten in large quantities. With dogs, you may see some stomach upset and diarrhea. For this reason, you may want to keep your dog away from the plant. Generally, when dogs graze on plant material like this, it is a sign that they may not be getting enough fiber in their diet. If the dog should show worsening signs, I recommend seeking help from your veterinarian.
