    It is hard for us to say if the yucca plant was related to your dog's health issue. Yuccas are considered poisonous, but we could not find anything that linked it to your pet's health problem. That being said, if she was just drinking the water, it is unlikely the yucca itself was the issue. But, if you were using a rooting hormone or a fertilizer, that may be connected. I hope your dog feels better soon.

    No, you do not need to add anything to the cut. It is best to leave it to heal on its own.

    Water indoor yucca plants only when the top inch of soil is completely dry. Also, do not allow it to stand in water, as this will lead to root rot. Outdoor yucca plants rarely need water as they are very drought tolerant. However, you can water them during drought-like conditions if they are extremely dry.

    I would wait until spring. The plant should survive, but you won't know the extent of the damage until spring, so it will be best to wait until then to prune so that you can better judge exactly what needs to be taken off.

    This is normally cause by either overwater or underwatering. With yuccas, people tend to overwater them. Make sure you are only watering when the soil is dry to the touch.

    There is a chance that the trunk was damaged and this is why it is not able to support itself. It may or may not make it. Only time will tell. Put a splint on the trunk and leave that in place through spring and summer. If it is able to heal itself, it will do so in the spring and summer. If it is not able to heal, it will either die or will need a splint forever in order to stay upright.
