Is Gunnera Toxic for Dogs?


sstone8507 added on April 5, 2015 | Answered

I have a full sun area in my yard that stays very boggy due to an aerobic septic system. I have seen the great gunnera and was told it prefers wet boggy soil so it would be perfect to help keep this area dry. I have 3 large dogs that have been known to chew on anything I plant in the backyard, including barberry bushes. Is this plant toxic for dogs?

Based on my research it doesn't appear to be toxic to dogs:

However, when it comes to beloved pets, I always strongly encourage pet owners to verify this information and see if they come to the same conclusion.
