Spring has sprung! Did you know, a large portion of household and garden plants are toxic to pets? Here’s a list to keep on hand at home. To view photographs of a much more extensive list of toxic and harmful plants known to cause systemic effects and/or varying degrees of gastrointestinal upset, visit www.aspca.org.

Should your pet experience a poison-related emergency this spring, contact your primary care veterinarian or come into our hospital, no appointment needed. VETMED is open 24/7, 365 days a year for emergency care. You can also contact ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control at 888-426-4435.
