Hello, I have a 7 mo old bloodhound, Dewey and a 5 yr old beagle/husky mix. Dewey my bloodhound has discovered my garden. He is always eating vegetables like greenbeans and vegetable foliage like cauliflower leaves, broccoli leaves and brussel sprout leaves. Sometimes it’s the plant itself. My question is can this hurt him? Can he eat too much and get sick? Also, I do not use any pesticides in my garden.

I live in a very rural area and lots of my patients have gardens that they help themselves to. I have never seen a problem outside of the rare tomato overdose. The plants to be weary of are onions and garlic. So a little nibble of the plants you mention is unlikely to cause a problem. Talk to your vet if you seen any vomiting or diarrhea. And try not to let them over do the feasting.
