Which common garden plants are poisonous to dogs?
From the Editors of The Dog Daily
Many plants are poisonous to dogs, and there is the added danger that "safe" plants may have been exposed to fertilizers, pesticides and compounds that could hurt your dog. Animals with illnesses might also have investigated the plants beforehand, so there are many compelling health reasons why your dog should not consume garden plants.
Laburnum trees, mistletoe, all sorts of fungi and plant bulbs can be toxic to dogs if they ingest them. Other potentially poisonous plants are columbine, hemlock, oleander, yew, lupine, boxwood, clematis, ivy and lily of the valley.
In early spring, when dogs tend to go outside more and people start working on their gardens, dogs often wind up at the veterinary office due to ingestion of plants. If your pet has access to your garden, be sure to landscape your yard with plants that aren't known to be poisonous to dogs.
