Default Hops = Poisonous to Dogs

I saw this in another thread and I wanted to let all you dog lovers out there that Hops are considered toxic to dogs. Do what you can to avoid them eating your hop waste or hop supply.

SWMBO also says to refrain from them drinking beer, I don't necessarily endorse that statement though.

I have read the same. good thing it doesn't apply to cats. My cat Fido loves to smell the hops I have waiting for the boil.

Ingestion of hops results in malignant hyperthermia, an uncontrollable fever. The first symptom to become obvious to an owner is heavy panting. Tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) will also be present, at up to 200 beats per minute. Temperature may rise as quickly as a 2 degrees F every five minutes. Carbon dioxide levels in the blood rise dramatically. Recommended treatment seems to be cold water baths to keep temperatures down, and a quick trip to the vet for temperature control and antibiotics.
