Introduction to Poisonous Plants & Flowers

INTRODUCTION TO POISONOUS PLANTS & FLOWERS

Now not to put a dampener on the gorgeous arrival of spring, but do you know many of these bright and beautiful flowers and plants are actually poisonous to our dogs?

Crocus, Daffodil Bulbs, Hyacinth, Narcissus, Rhododendron, Snow Drops, Tulips and more... A simple search on the internet will give you lots more information as depending on the flower or plant will depend which part is poisonous. 

Some signs of poisoning can include... excess salivation, vomiting and/or diarrhoea, unsteadiness on their feet/lack co-ordination, if you have found them collapsed/unconscious..... It is important that if you suspect your dog has ingested anything poisonous that you contact your vet and seek treatment as soon as possible. The sooner your dog is treated the better and in severe cases can make the difference between life and death.

So enjoy the start of a new season but be mindful particularly with puppies and mischievous dogs, especially those who eat first and ask questions later.  So as we slowly come out of lock down and start to venture further from home, please keep in mind some of the innocent dangers out there in the beautiful parks and gardens.

This does not represent a complete list of all poisonous plants and is only intended as an introductory guide. It is also possible that your dog could also have a sensitivity or allergy to a plant that is not on the list, so always be vigilant and seek help if you are concerned about their health.
