In Plain Sight: Dangers Found In The Environment That Are Harmful to Your Dog

In Plain Sight: Dangers Found In The Environment That Are Harmful to Your Dog

Has your dog ever come in after playing outside seeming sick?  Perhaps you’ve seen him immediately puke afterwards?  There’s a good chance that he got into something that he shouldn’t have and that that something is a toxic plant of some kind.  Toxic plants that are poisonous to dogs are found in almost every backyard across the United States.  Some of them are common flowers, what we view as harmless weeds and vines, when in reality they can pose a huge health risk to pooches everywhere.

As a pet owner, some of the things to watch out for are Perennial Flowers, Vines, Annuals, Shrubs, Trees, Bulb Plants, Tropical Plants, Weeds, Wild Planets and more. There are more than 400 known dangerous (and in some cases deadly) species that can harm your dog. Your dog doesn’t need to eat the entire plant or flower either, in most cases it’s something far more minor such as a seed, sap or the plants stem. In any case, a complete list of the plants that could cause a serious risk to your dog can be found by visiting this link:  https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal-poison-control/toxic-and-non-toxic-plants?field_toxicity_value%5B%5D=01
