Bread dough may not seem like something that would classify as a toxin, but in our pets it can cause some serious side effects. While pets can be exposed to bread dough any time there seem to be spikes around holidays (Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc) as more people are making things from scratch. As pets ingest the dough, it will begin to rise in the warm, moist contents of their stomach. This will cause gas to be released and can lead to some of the clinical signs we see.
