Nightshade, Bittersweet/Deadly

Just as Nightshade is toxic to humans, it is toxic to your pet and may lead to death. Prompt veterinary care is critical.

Symptoms include excessive salivation, loss of appetite, vomiting (with blood), diarrhea (with blood), weakness, muscle convulsions, tachycardia/bradycardia, or paralysis of rear legs. Depending on the amount consumed, the result could be sudden death or it could take about four days of illness before death or recovery.
