Plants that are Toxic to Dogs

Plants that are Toxic to Dogs

Keep these plants away from your dogs. You may come across these on walks or you may even have these in your home.

 

Sago Palm 

Although frequently used as a feature plant on balconies and verandas for their tropical feel, they can be a high-risk plant to keep around your dog. The seeds/”nuts” contain a high concentration of a toxin, with only a couple of seeds needed to cause liver failure.

Azaleas and Rhododendrons 

It is not well known that these vibrant, Spring bloomers contain Grayantoxins, which are a group of Neurotoxins. If ingested, they can induce drooling, vomiting, weakness and loss of coordination. Severe poisoning can be fatal.

English Ivy 

Seen overgrowing on many fences or walls, it is important to ensure your dog doesn’t show any interest in eating the leaves or berries as they may upset their belly to cause drooling, cramping, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Wandering Jew 

This is a creeping, ground cover succulent that may be encountered on walks. If your dog has skin to skin contact, it can create a nasty, itchy reaction, often seen on their abdomen, groin and paws. If this occurs, it is best to wash the affected areas immediately with a soothing, oatmeal-based dog shampoo.
