Rhubarb!!! I had a horrible run-in with rhubarb, but I think I was fourtinate to have found this web site a night or two before the accidnet! My wethers, and one doe got into a patch, ate the leaves and then had the most horrible case of bloat. Per the vet, I had to tube them with Maylox, I think it was about 30 ccs for some reason..can't remember exact, every 4 hours or so. I guess there is some binding chemical reaction that prevents crystals from forming and slicing the liver and kidneys after digestion. (I can't think of the chem. compound - was it... calcium oxolates?) Brain damage moment :-)

Also, I was told that any trees that bear a pitted fruit contain posionous parts, or potentially poison parts under conditions,such as if leaves are wilted (choke cherry) or hit by frost.

Cornell has an awsome web page on poisonous plants.. I'll try to find the link again. Every time we get a new computer, or do a nice cleaning job I loose my rarely used links :-)
