Toxic Plants for Dogs and Cats

Hello Furry Friend Fans! 🐶🐱

You might have caught your fluffy companions chewing on things they shouldn’t be, right? It seems they have an insatiable curiosity, especially when it comes to plants! So, let’s jump into the Top 10 Green Dangers you should keep away from your fur-babies.

Lilies 🌺

Starting with a shocker! Lilies are a definite no for both cats and dogs—all of them! Yes, those beautiful blossoms can cause severe kidney damage if your pets get a taste. So, all you lily lovers, make sure those flowers are unreachable!

Ivy 🌿

English or poison, it doesn’t matter! These green creepers are a no-go. They can cause nasty skin irritation, so it’s best to keep them away.

Sago Palms 🌴

They may be in vogue, but they are liver failure-inducing no-nos for our cats and dogs. Keep their stylish fronds at bay!

Tulips 🌷

A spring favorite of ours but a dangerous snack for them! The bulb and flower can induce some serious belly aches, so keep them out of paw’s reach.

Chrysanthemums 🌼

Got a green thumb? Then you probably have these in your garden. Be cautious; these beauties can induce vomiting, diarrhea, and depression in the central nervous system for your pets.

Aloe Vera 🌵

Known for healing, but to our pets, it’s the opposite! The sap can cause a tumultuous tummy, so it’s best kept away from curious mouths.

Azaleas 🌸

Beautiful but deadly, ingesting these colorful shrubs can result in vomiting, diarrhea, and in severe cases, coma.

Oleander 🍃

Every part of this plant is a big NO! It can cause a range of issues from digestive problems to heart irregularities.

Rhubarb 🥧

Delicious in pies but a poisonous treat for pets. Both leaves and stalk can cause kidney damage along with vomiting and diarrhea.

Tomatoes 🍅

Not a plant, but the fruit and leaves can upset your pet’s stomach, so best to keep those tomato plants away from your furry friends.
