Is burning sage safe for dogs?

I have a couple of dogs who are usually pretty well behaved, and have no history of behavior problems. The one thing they will occasionally do is chew through a sage stick (it's the same sage that I use in my garden). It's not a serious problem as they are pretty good about not doing this, but is there a safe way to stop this habit?

I've heard of people burning sage to cleanse your home of negative energy, and I don't know if this is something that you would do, but I just thought it might be worth mentioning in case any of you have used this method.

Thanks!

You might want to put a stop to the chewing too. A vet I saw at the time I got my dogs said he'd had dogs for years chewing sage, and said sage is toxic to dogs. (It's toxic to humans too). You don't want to be burning sage and having it come into contact with your dogs.

I'm going to do more research on the topic.

You're probably right, I didn't think it was something that I'd be using. I was just concerned that the dogs might be chewing through it because they seemed to have a taste for it, and the smell of it (when they eat it) is kind of appealing.

Thanks for all the input. I appreciate it.

I've seen this happen too. When my dog had his wisdom teeth removed he seemed to find sage extremely delicious.

My mom made sage tea to put on the teeth for a few days before I took him to the vet, and it worked great.

A sage tea might have helped but I was hoping to find a natural remedy that wouldn't involve making or drinking something that could be toxic. I did see a suggestion on another post that you could mix the smoke of the sage with a little vinegar and then let the dogs lick it off. I think this might work as well, I just don't want to have them ingest something toxic.

I think that vinegar will probably make the taste too sour. Sage is very rich in sage flavor. I'm going to do some research and see if I can find a natural remedy that will be safe.

I also found this site (which you might find interesting) which talks about it.

I've had to do some research on it, and have come to a conclusion. Sage is not safe to use with dogs, at least, not without it's being burnt. Sage has been associated with the poison hemlock, which is toxic to humans and animals. I read that it can be fatal to dogs. If your dogs are going to chew sage, then burn it. Don't let them eat it.

When I do burn sage, I put it in a glass, metal bowl, and cover it with a screen to prevent the smoke from getting into my house. I use a chimney fire starter. This is a thing with two little logs that you place in the bottom of the pot. I have a fire in my fireplace, and this will get the fire going. Once the fire starts burning, I put the bowl containing the sage over the fire, and I hold my breath until the smoke starts to fill my house, and then I open the door. I am able to smell the smoke all the way up the chimney, and I know that if the smoke gets into my house, then it is time to turn off the chimney.

It's been a while since I've done this, but the last time I did it, I burnt sage in a metal pan, and I used a chimney fire starter to start the fire, and used my lungs as a buffer between the smoke and my house.

Burning sage outside can be an option if there is no wood stove.

I just read something about "sage" being a very bad idea in any form.

So far, we are having a mild drought (not that we need a lot of water) and that may be our only choice if we have no wood stove. It has been going on a couple weeks.

Our house is on a bit of a hill.

The last time we had a lot of rain, we used it to "air out" (dry the yard out a bit), but this time we'll have to resort to sage.

We are in Arizona, where we can use cactus plants to cleanse and purify homes and yards.

I've been looking and researching and haven't found anything bad about sage in any form.

I've even found stuff that says that burning sage will keep away snakes.

I'm going to try sage next week, and hopefully find a place where we can do a "sage" burn.

I have used sage in the past to cleanse the home of negative energy. It works fine, but I do not want to use it inside the home or anywhere near the animals. My dogs like to chew sage when we are out, but not when we are in the house. I think I will make a batch of sage tea and put it on the tooth for a few days. I am not fond of the smell, but I will keep the dogs out of the room when I make the tea.
