Yes, the Sago is toxic to pets, and I will pass this along to our editors.

As for cool versus cold- Unfortunately, that may be a relative term! Somebody in the tropics may consider 30F cold, where as some in northern areas will consider 30 to be very mild. I will be best to refer to the exact temperature which will be labeled along side of the reference.
