Plants that are Harmful to Cats and Dogs

From material and sources located by Lisa Nichols

This is not an inclusive list because there are so many plants and types of plants.  There are many lists available, and none of them are identical. To make it more confusing, some plants are harmful to a cat, but not a dog, or vice versa.  However, we have referenced several reliable sources in order to provide some help as you consider plants for your home and yard.

Incidentally, if your pet should possibly ingest any of these plants, we recommend that you contact your veterinarian immediately. If your veterinarian is not available, we recommend that you contact an Emergency Veterinary Clinic in your area, rather than waiting until their office opens. Take a sample of what you suspect they’ve eaten with you.
