Do you mean a Sago palm? Cycad species?? If unsure, google a few images to verify.

If so, then yes they are poisonous. Don't let your dog eat it.

In some cases ingestion of the plant and/or parts can lead to liver failure. In other dogs, nothing happens.

Is the pup acting lethargic or vomiting or diarrrhea w/wo blood? How long ago and how much of the plant? How long ago was the last ingestion?
