Are lizards toxic to dogs?

(Miriam Norrish) #1

We have a Jack Russell terrier who has developed a taste for killing & eating the lizards that are now profuse. Today as well as the small blue bellied variety she killed a lovely green one, I think an oscillating lizard.

She has had two episodes of vomiting recently & we're a little worried as we had put it down to pesticide used by our local farmer.

Any advice would be welcome.

Our dog eats lizards and is still going strong. He stinks afterwards though. Not at all pleasant.

Oh well that makes sense because I have noticed a vile smell today!

Thanks Reuben.

I think lizards are okay but salamanders are poisonous.
