Asked November 4, 2019, 2:30 PM EST

My dog has been sick with a few times and I found this plant with berries in my back yard. Trying to identify it but having trouble. Think it is a night shade type but just does not look like examples on internet . Can you help ?? The plant has been ripped up for now Joel Sheridan

Hello, this is pokeweed. It is poisonous to humans and livestock, though it does have an interesting history of use. More information in the link below. Feel fee to write with questions to my email.
