Dangerous Plants for Dogs
Did you know there are certain plants that your dog should avoid? Some plants and flowers can actually be harmful to dogs if digested. In fact, there are more than 700 plants that could cause a potential threat to your dog. Whether these plants are inside or outside, they can pose a threat and should be removed if you have a dog. Some of those include lilies, bulbs of tulips, azaleas, elephant ears, a variety of ferns, and even the aloe plant. If you have these plants, you should consider removing them or placing them in an area where your dog has absolutely no access. Signs of poison from a plant or flower may include intense stomach pain, drooling, loss of appetite, seizures, vomiting, damage to the central nervous system and cardiac abnormalities. You can find a list of toxic and non-toxic plants on the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) website or call your reputed vet Glen Ellyn, IL.
