    DefaultFIGS

    are figs toxic?

    My 1 yr old threw up yesterday and again a little while ago (before dinner)

    I have just started changing her from Pro Plan to Wellness but have been doing so slowly a little at a time

    trying to figure out what the cause is. I did catch her with a fig yesterday - figs that hang froma neighbors yard dropping on my yard - could that be it?

    She had upchucked alot of leaves though - yes she is a goat

    No they are not toxic. I know people who use fig newtons to discourage dogs from eating poop.

    As in they feed the dog Fig Newtons to keep them from eating their own poop?

    Or anyone else's poop. Talk to Cookiesmom. She used it with one of her dogs. She fed figs to all her dogs and the poop eater stopped eating poop.

    Yep, it's true about the Fig Newtons. You have to feed them to all your dogs, not just the poop eater. I found that I had to increase the amount to 2 cookies a day, but they sure didn't mind.

    Okay. REALLY!! Seriously???
    I just don't believe the Figs really work........But I am willing to give it a try. I've tried EVERYTHING else there is and nothing works.
    And just in case it does not.. I LOVE fig newtons LOL
    Do I feed them to the poop eater too?? She does not eat her own.

    Kim, she might start eating her own if everyone else's tastes bad. Get the ones at Walmart. They're cheaper and work too. (reminds self she needs to go back to walmart)

    That's sorta what I thought might happen. Forgot to pick them up today. Now I am upset because they sound good.
