Toxic Plants for Pets
A number of plants are poisonous to pets. These can cause serious illness and even death in some cases. It's important to first check the safety of any plants before your pets have access to them. If you're unsure about the safety of a particular plant, talk to your veterinarian for advice.
The US website 'Pet Poison List' runs a national poisons control centre for pets which includes an online list of the most frequently encountered plants that have been reported as having systemic effects on pets and/or intense effects on the gastrointestinal tract. We recommend bookmarking the list. PET POISON LIST.
If you think your pet has ingested a toxic plant, it may be a medical emergency so please call an RSPCA veterinary hospital or your local veterinarian
