my puppy and cat nip

November 1st, 2005, 09:10 PM
i have an 11 week old chihuahua puppy along with 3 cats and TeeCee preferes to play with catnip toys rather then his own big collection of dog toys. is this safe? he's got tiny tennis balls but he would rather play with the cat's catnip ball!

I would allow him to play with the toys under supervision, his sharp little teeth could tear the toys then they become a choking hazard. I doubt catnip acts on dogs the way it does cats, my dog also likes catnip and I've never noticed her to go crazy on it. The only worry is swallowing parts of the toy and choking on it that I can see. I'm not a vet though, just another pet owner. :pawprint:
