First post here and new to home brewing of beer though done a bit of wine in my time. My first batch was Irish Red and my son's puppy was roaming around. I dropped a pellet of hops on the floor and the dog went for it. I knew no better and figured if he could eat something that strong he could take it. Well we were drinking some beer during the brewing process and gave him a little of that too. My son got on me the next AM and said don't ever give his dog beer again. He said it shook all night long and panted. My gut feeling was the hops as I have seen dogs drink beer before without issues. Now that I have read here I know that was the problem. Now the dog and I can drink together again but no hops except in the wort!
