Need help identifying what plant my puppy ate please!
Hello, I am in the Seattle area. I moved here a couple of years ago and don't know all the native plants. I have two beautiful dogs that I walk on a trail every day. One is a puppy though, only 15 weeks old, and I usually keep my eye on her constantly because she puts everything in her mouth, but my other dog was having an issue so I turned my head for a sec and she started eating a pod. There are these red/orange pods with little tufts on top on plants that are typical oblong, green, glossy leaves, and they get to be about apricot size. They do have a lot of white seeds in them. They kind of look like a little pomegranates but with persimmon skin. I asked someone on the trail what it was and she said she only knew the German word for it but that it was used to make red tea. I just need to verify that it is harmless. They grow all over the place so I am sure people know what it is. Thanks in advance!!
