Dunlop has a thing, particularly as a puppy for chewing on Mum's Rosemary. I'm wondering if I can use it in cooking? We've got mint here as well and lemon sage. Do any of these plants have any properties that can harm him or help him even? We grow Lavender here as well for its anti mozzie properties.

Rosemary is known to be a trigger for some dogs with seizures but otherwise is a fine herb to use for cooking. I haven't a clue as to what lemon sage is. Do you have the botanical name? As far as I know mints and sages are fine for dogs. The only spice I know that is a problem is nutmeg when over used.

Though nutmeg is a spice (spices are barks) and rosemary is an herb. They are supposed to be excellent for us as well (and delicious). Parsley is supposedly good for the breath.
