Pet Dangers: Poisonous Plants By Dr Walter!
This week’s question is from James from Runcorn: James said: Someone told me my plant is dangerous for my dog, which other plants are poisonous? Pet plant poisoning can be a veterinary emergency that requires immediate medical attention. But you can save your pet’s life simply by staying clear of the worst plant offenders, both inside and outside your home.
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list and you should always check before purchasing new plants for your home.
If you think your dog has ingested any part of a poisonous plant, don’t wait. Rapid treatment can save a pet’s life.
We recommend that you bring the pet straight in – and if it is safe to do so please call and let us know so we can make the necessary preparations.
The good news is that with timely and proper treatment pets can recover from poisoning.
