I pm'd a poster in another thread who mentioned thier hound scarfed up bird seed. I thought this might be important enough to post separately.

I lost our Annabelle to Diamond aflatoxin. I since have done a lot of reading and know more about aflatoxin than I cared to ever want to know. But, our vet told us they have seen dogs with this from bird seed, which can get the same molds on it (dogs are especially susceptible, have no idea about birds but guess may not be a problem for them). So, not being alarmist here, but would STRONGLY recommend that you not allow your dogs to help themselves to the birdseed.

As an aside post script, have received paperwork from Diamond's insurance company to settle for vet costs and puppy purchase price. Nothing for the "pain" part as dogs (in the eyes of the law) are nothing more than property.
