Which Plants Are Toxic To Pets?

Most of the time, plant eating is harmless to pets, but it can be dangerous if a cat, dog or horse decides to eat a toxic plant or a plant that’s been treated with pesticides.The ASPCA has compiled a comprehensive list of frequently encountered plants that have been reported as having systemic effects on animals and/or intense effects on the gastrointestinal tract.  There are 998 items on the list!

If you think that your animal is ill or may have ingested a poisonous substance, contact your local veterinarian or our 24-hour emergency poison hotline (US) directly at 1-888-426-4435.
