Poison pet plants can kill cats and dogs any time of year, but holidays are particularly dangerous when festive plants pose dangers. Refer to this helpful poison chart to avoid toxic plants all year long.
Poison Pet Plants & What to Do
‘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.
Meanwhile, 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?
