Plants That Are Poisonous to Your Dog

3 Nov

Caly The Mischievious Shih-TzuBeware of poisonous plants that lurk in your garden and that can harm your dogs!  When my beloved Shih-tzu was a puppy I found her munching on a sago palm leaf that extended into her favorite resting area on the back patio.  Little did I know that sago palms are very poisonous to dogs.

An exhaustive list of poisonous plants does not exist so be sure to check several so you don’t miss one.     I  used the those below because they are all expert sources:

If you suspect your pet has eaten something poisonous do not hesitate to immediately call or take your pet to your veterinarian, an emergency animal hospital, or call the ASPCA’s 24-hour emergency poison hotline at 1-888-426-4435 for guidance.
