Foods to avoid
Poisonous plants are everywhere, in our yards and in our houses. Although they look beautiful and smell nice, they can pose a serious threat to your dog’s health if ingested. Dogs don’t recognize plants that are poisonous and will chew on them out of boredom or curiosity. In some plants, the whole plant is poisonous, in others, it may only be the leaves or flowers. Here’s a list of some of the known plants that are poisonous to dogs.
Poisoning Symptoms Poisonous plants can cause a wide range of symptoms from vomiting, diarrhea, excessive drooling, mouth and throat irritation, hallucination, staggering, seizures, rashes, coma and death. Plants aren’t the only things that can poison your dog. They will eat most anything that smells or tastes good. Some of the more common substances are chocolate, pesticides and anti-freeze. If you think that your dog may have been poisoned, the first thing to do is try to identify the poisonous plant or substance and then go immediately to the vet.
