‘Tis the season for decking the hall with garlands and more. I received an email from ProFlowers.com with this great infographic to share, and it seemed particularly timely.

Of course, my advice is to keep toxic plants out of the house entirely when you have pets (or toddlers!) eager to taste-test everything. Accidents do happen, though, so this is a handy guide to bookmark (and share!) with other pet parents.

first-aidMeanwhile, why not keep an emergency kit on hand? My go-to is the First-Aid Companion for Dogs & Cats not only for poisons, but for everything from torn nails to (gasp!) gunshots or snakebite. It’s a good time to “gift” the pet people in your life, too…although my wish for you and your pets is that you’ll NEVER need the emergency advice!

Have your pets ever “snacked” on something toxic? Do tell! What happened? what did you do…and what would you advise others based on your experience?

Poison Alert! 199 Pet Poisonous Plants & What to Do — 6 Comments

  1. Thankfully none our our kiddos has ever had a run-in with toxic plants. We had to keep some plants out of the house for some of my childhood cats, but thus far none of my babies I’ve had in adulthood have been plant eaters (aside from Simba eating cat grass once she knew she was allowed).

    Definitely glad to have your first aid book around just in case, though.

  2. Our problem is chocolate. All the humans like it, and Rosie, our older beagle mix thinks it is fantastic. We have to watch her. And ourselves, to make sure she doesn’t get her fangs on it!
