Sago Palms are plants that are indigenous to Florida that many people do not realize are toxic to dogs. All parts of the Sago Palm are toxic to dogs, with the seeds of the Sago Palm are the most poisonous part. The main component in the Sago Palm that is toxic is the cycasin, which can cause severe liver failure in dogs. It usually takes 15 minutes to several hours after ingesting for any symptoms to show up.
