This spice can cause as many problems for humans as it can for dogs, but in small amounts it is a welcome addition to the kitchen.  For a typical human, weighing 180 lbs, two tablespoons of nutmeg would be enough to bring on serious symptoms.  Symptoms can appear within 30 minutes and can last two days.  The amount for dogs should be lowered according to weight.  Symptoms can include:

  • Head Aches
  • Skin Flushing
  • Irritability
  • Excitement
  • Depression
  • Hallucinations
  • Psychotic Episodes
  • Depression of the Involuntary Nervous System, such as Breathing
  • Liver Damage
