Are dahlias poisonous to dogs?

Dahlias are generally regarded as low risk and safe for dogs.

This is due to the fact that the petal that dogs often find tasty (the tepals) contn high levels of a mild carbohydrate, and that the only form of dahlia that may be toxic to dogs is the toxic dahlia variety that is inedible.

The petals of the poisonous dahlia are white, and are usually located towards the base of the flowers. They contn chemicals which can cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, and eventually death, if consumed. When eating a petal, contact can be made with the mouth, skin, or eyes. The effects are the same as a dog eating any other poisonous plant, and will have the same time-frame for recovery.
