10 Spring Plants That Are Dangerous for Dogs and Cats
Spring has finally sprung — but some of the flowers and plants growing in your garden or blooming in your vases could cause serious harm to your pet.
As a veterinary toxicologist for the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center and a gardening enthusiast, I often give advice on planting pet-safe gardens — and with the planting season in full force, it’s important for all dog and cat owners to be extra vigilant about keeping dangerous plants out of their homes and gardens. If you suspect your dog or cat has ingested a toxic plant, call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center hotline at 888-426-4435 and contact your veterinarian. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
