    Symptoms caused by ingesting English ivy are generally mild. The toxin is found throughout the plant but is most concentrated in the leaves. Repeated exposure to the sap of the plant can cause a temporary allergic dermatitis.

    Varigated ivy toxicity in dogs

    Ivy sure looks pretty tumbling out of a planter or cascading down a brick wall, but things will not be pretty if your dog eats its leaves. Several varieties of ivy contain toxins, including triterpenoid saponins and polyacetylene compounds, which cause excessive drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.

    I would look the other way In disgust. 

    Dogs are suppose to be smart. They should use their instincts. Other real animals do. 

    You don't see wild animals suffering from eating poisonous plants. 

    It's only the smart dog that suffers.
