Ive read almost every article i could on animals eating yews and every single one states the animal will die within hours sometimes up to 2 days later. One statement was that a mouth full of yew could kill a horse or cow within 15 minutes, and that 50 needles could kill a man. Theres no antidotes nothing you can do. Well you could imagine my dismay after my two 4 month old doelings just ran right up to one and proceeded to eat atleast 2 mouthfuls each as im running and screaming towards them before i could get them to stop. That was yesterday around 4:00 and i must have stayed up in the barn with them googling symptoms until atleast 1am this morning. So far they are fine and have no symptoms but i know that we're not out of the clear for 3 days. My question is has anyone had a goat or animal eat yew and survive? Is this shrub as lethal as they say? And if so is there really nothing i can do?
