Watch Out When Taking Outdoor Plants Inside!

Some plants are toxic to pets. If you’re thinking of bringing some outdoor plants inside this winter, make sure they are not toxic to your pets.  This is a good time to examine any plants before taking them indoors.  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.

Make sure any plants that you receive as gifts are not toxic to your pets.
