With the gardening season approaching, now is a good time to evaluate the toxicity of your indoor and outdoor plants.
Remember the Doris Day song, 'Don't eat the daisies'. Well, maybe you don't know the song, but it was good advice for dogs! The lyrics should have also included, Sago Palms, Lilies, Ferns and a long list of houseplants and outdoor plants. If you have a pup (or cat), like me, that likes to explore the world with the mouth open, keep us away from these things. After reviewing the list of 455 plants, we discover that we own most of them!

...And remember, it is not just plants that can kill. Dogster lists other household concerns, like human medication, rat poison and herbicides to name a few.

Last year, about this time, I spent the night at the emergency vet, because I ate some unknown toxin.
It was no good :(
