Camellias are a type of flowering plant native to Asia. They are commonly grown in the United States and bear fruits, or berries, that can be eaten by your dog. However, these berries are not poisonous.


Camellia berries are not poisonous to dogs. They are also non-toxic if eaten by cats or horses.


The camellia is also known as the common camellia or peony camellia. They are part of the Theaceae family of plants.

What to Do

Although camellia berries are not known to be toxic to pets, take your dog to a vet if you observe any kind of reaction after ingestion of the berries. Bring some of the berries with you for testing.
