Poison Spring Plants

Poison plants

Harmful Spring plants keep these plants well out of the reach of your dogs. Research your choice of plants before planting. There are well over 700 springtime plants that are a danger to your pet. Even out for your walks you should know which Spring time plants to avoid.

Here are a few:

Azalea- Causes vomiting, diarrhea, drooling, weakness coma

High blood pressure affects the Central Nervous System

Crocus- Excessive drooling, abdominal pain, diarrhea vomiting, loss of appetite

Daffodil- Severe gastrointestinal convulsions, low blood pressure, tremors

Tulip- vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite

If you see your dog, eat a plant that you know to be poisonous, induce vomiting. Generally you have an 11/2 hour window depending on the size of your dog to induce vomiting. Any longer you must seek Veterinary help.
