Plants That Can Poison Your Dog

The holiday season is here!  And in addition to all the excitement, fun, and cheer that are a part of our celebrations, there’s also a level of stress and extra requirements (shopping, cooking, social events!) that can not only take away your energy, but also your FOCUS

And because of that, this is the time of year when we hear a lot more stories about dogs ingesting things that they shouldn’t!  Some innocuous (your ‘everything bagel’), and some serious (your Aunt’s bottle of Xanax that she left in her open purse in your foyer….)

Below is a fairly comprehensive list of items that are poisonous to dogs. It’s not complete, as listing every toxic item in the world would require an entire website, but it’s a good overview. 

In the event that your dog ingests anything that you suspect is poisonous, please immediately call your vet, your local 24/7 veterinary emergency clinic, or a poison control hotline.
