Toxic Plants to Dogs

 

toxic plants to dogs, lantana, azalea and many more

 

List of Plants that are Toxic for Dogs

Do a check of your garden. This is a list of some of the toxic plants to dogs which you should keep away from your dog.  Lots of us enjoy gardening and owning a dog. Responsible dog ownership means keeping our dogs safe. When you are gardening be mindful of what you plant if you have pets and use the list below as a guide to keep your dog safe. At the very least create a barrier between your dog and the toxic plant in question and that way you can both enjoy the yard together.

 

Some of the symptoms to look out for, if your dog has eaten a toxic plant in the garden, can be diarrhea, nausea, breathing difficulties or skin allergies so it is important that you contact your vet immediately.

 

If you know of a toxic plant to dogs not on our list please let us know by emailing us.

TIP: If you share your garden with a dog who runs along the fence line, don't put plants in the area in front of the fence. Dogs will run right through them. Leave the area free and plant in front of the running track! Of course if this is not possible build a barrier between your dog and the plants.
