According to the FDA, the drug pentobarbital “can affect animals that ingest it, and possibly cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance or nausea, or in extreme cases, possibly death.” At least 1 dog has died, and several others were injured, after apparently consuming Hunk of Beef.
