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!
Lilies 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.
Tulips…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.
If you pet does ingest any of the above poisons (or eats a chocolate bunny) contact one of these poison control hotlines here, then get your pet to a vet.
Make this a safe holiday for your entire family, including the furry ones!
