Safety Week - Poisoness Plants

There are a great many plants and foods that are poisonous to dogs, cats and other pets - some are toxic and some are not (meaning some can kill and some can just make us very sick) There are also many plants and foods that we can be allergic too and that is in an individual thing.

Sadly - there are far to many plants to list on our blog - so we have found links to the best information we can find.

  1. Useful links - thanks so much. When I was a puppy I would try to eat anything. So Gail's additional bit of advice for safety week is, obviously, take extra special care if you have a puppy!

  18. Teacher(s) this was an EXCELLENT Class.
    We took VERY careful NOTES and (I Frankie Furter am keeping them SAFE from ERNIE) we are going to give them to MOM to put in our Furst Aide and Medicines Box... TAPED to the LID fur QUICK REFERENCE.
    Two years ago a dog in Columbus DIED from eating a House Plant that had NOT been MARKED as being UNSAFE FUR PETS... in the store where it was bought. NOW that store will not EVEN sell those plants. THAT is GOOD butt a dog had to DIE to keep others safe..
    IF they had had YOUR List of LINKS... that would not have happened.
    THANK YOU So VERY much fur his EXCELLENT Class. BRAVO... well done.

  19. Great post, you guys! We are going to bookmark those sites!

  20. Thank you for giving us all these links. We are gonna be studying them closely and looking for the plants that may make us sick.

    You asked if we had rabies in our area, yes we do, but due to some programs it is fairly rare. We get our vaccine to help keep us safe.

  21. Thanks, there's lots of plants that aren't good for peeps. We'll just stick to grass....we love to graze.

  22. Thats some outstanding links, been there copied the pupper stuff for Mom & Dad to follow, their brains don't have much storage space left, gettin old.
    Thanks a lot for being part of Safety week with you post!

  24. thank you for providing some great information links. Mom always worries cause both me and Hazel like to munch on stuff growing outdoors and she wants to make sure everything is safe for us.
    Great job finding resources for all pets!

  27. Thanks for sharing guys great advice! Love Dolly

  28. OMD, this was most impawtent info guys!!!! I have taken lots of notes and I am keepin' them by Ma's plantin' table. She is most careful not to bring toxic plants home, butts ya know,sometimes it's aways good to double check!!

  29. I was surprised to discover we had a couple of dangerous plants. They have been removed! Thanks for a great safety post. ☺

  30. This is great information that we need to keep. Mommy doesn't do real good with growing stuff, but she does get flowers as gifts(which die real quick, cause her thumb is black, instead of green) Thanks for this and I am sending apples to the teachers.

    Loveys Sasha

  31. Perfect timing with the links! My mom and I are having to replant almost the whole yard. Since I like to nibble plants all the live long day, we have to be careful what's in my yard.

  32. Thank you so much for the very informative post Reilly & Denny. Mom & Dada have actually arranged for our little garden to be done over and they have specified that they want a dog-friendly garden with dog-friendly and mosquito non-friendly plants.

  33. It is important to know these information. We had to remove some plants in our yard that are poisonous (only 1 left but Sugar is trained to ignore it). Golden Thanks for sharing. Golden Woofs

  34. We don't have any poisonous plants in the yard or house, but we aren't real interested in plants or chewing on them. We have to be more careful about mulch. We have no mulch but it is all around us at other homes, so we need to watch out.

  35. Very important and useful links we will be sure to keep bookmarked and also share. Thank you!

  36. Interesting articles in a wonderfull blog, greeting from Belgium.


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
