Other Comments:
I have a chocolate Labrador puppy (12 weeks old) that likes to eat the blueberries and seeds along with the leaf. Can you please tell me if these trees are toxic to my dog. I can only find little information on them. Being native to New Zealand and promotes wild bird life. I purchased my home in January 2017 with these mature trees and I am worried that my dog eats the berries and sticky seeds. I’m having a difficult time deterring her from eating them. My local nursery is unsure. I’ve googled but have had no joy in finding answers.
Appreciate your urgent advice as I am trying to find out what is causing my puppy’s allergy.
Kind regards
