Help ASAP! Is Plumeria foliage toxic to pets?


Hi I need to know ASPA if anyone can tell me if plumeria leaves are poisinous? My 10 week old puppy just demolished one of my cuttings and chewed up a bunch of the leaves.
Please if anyone knows if they are poisonous let me know ASAP.

They are, in fact, very poisonous. (That white sap?) I would keep a close eye on him, and make sure he drinks a lot, at least.

Thank you I am keeping a close watch on him and have some one standing by tonight in case I need to take him in to the vet. I pray he is ok.

He should be OK. I used to have a dog, and he did much worse things when he was young Including, eating a lot of chocolate that he had "found."

He just had a nice big dinner and is sleeping in his play pen now. Thanks for the help...I will have to replace that plumeria now I been growing that cutting all summer too. At least it was not my branched ones.

But most of all I am just wanting my little boy to be ok, I can live without the plumeria.

No that is Josey my cocker spaniel that just turned 13 last week. It is so hard to beleive I have had her 13 years! She is the pride of my life and I just adore her. You can see pics of Daniel and all my furkids in my albums on my profile.

A friend of mine did some online research for me because my eyes are not to good right now and she found so good info and puppies and plumerias. From what we found it doenst seem to efect them unless they eat the stems. There is not enough sap in the leaves, they would have to eat a lot of them. So Daniel is safe, thank God.
