Is it true what they say about yew? Are lovely lilies not so lovely for felines?
As a responsible pet parent, it’s up to you to know what plants and trees are potentially poisonous to your favorite dog or cat.

Experts at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center have compiled a list of frequently encountered toxic plants. Be sure to bookmark this section and visit it often. It could save your pet’s life:

You can even print out the list of toxic plants and post them on your refrigerator. /Gary

    And be sure to call your vet or animal poison control immediately if you suspect your pet has nibbled on a toxic houseplant. Poison control (888-426-4435)charges $60, but it’s money well spent if an incident occurs outside your vet’s office hours.
