DOG TULIPSIt’s May and the plants and flowers are beginning to bloom in the garden. This is a good time to examine your yard for pet hazards. We may not realize it, but we plant flowers that are poisonous to our pets. Here’s a list compiled by the Blue Buffalo Dog Food company.

  • Sago Palm – It has leaves and seeds that can be deadly to pets.
  • Oleander – This outdoor shrub has leaves and flowers that can be extremely toxic and even deadly if ingested by dogs and cats.
  • Azalea/Rhododendron– If your dog eats just a few of the leaves, he will vomit and have diarrhea and excessive drooling.
  • Tulips – The bulbs of these plants are highly toxic to pets, more so than the leaves and flowers. The bulbs are the perfect target for dogs who like to dig.
  • Crocus – If consumed, they can cause gastrointestinal problems.
  • Cyclamen – The roots of this plant can be deadly if ingested by pets.
  • Daffodils – The outer layer of it’s bulbs have crystals that can irritate a pets mouth. Eating the stems and roots can also be toxic.

Being that May is national pet month, lets all do our best to keep our pets safe.

Remember, your pets count!
