The four Easter plants listed below are beautiful and abundant this time of year, and should be kept away from your pets…they are toxic!

LilyLilies are extremely toxic to cats!  Though the poisonous part of the plant has yet to be identified, it is best to avoid lilies in your home, and don’t take them to any homes you visit if they have cats.   Exposure to even a small amount of the toxin can cause severe, or even fatal, kidney disease.




Cyclamen have roots that are toxic to both dogs and cats.  If your pet ingests any part of the cyclamen, look for gastrointestinal irritation that causes severe vomiting.Cyclamen


TulipsTulips…the entire plant…from the flower to the bulb is toxic to pets, but the bulbs are the most poisonous part.  They can cause gastrointestinal irritation, drooling, loss of appetite, depression of the central nervous system, convulsions, and cardiac irregularities.
