Flowers and Plants Toxic to Dogs

by Alessia

Whether you’re a gardener in North Carolina or have an overgrown yard in Scotland, there are tons of flowers and plants toxic to dogs that you may or may not be aware of. A bouquet of flowers sent to your home or a bush in the backyard can all be a threat if you aren’t educated on the types of plants that are safe for your curious pooch. Lucas will eat just about anything (including but not limited to: napkins, dust, rubber bands, leaves, dirt, rocks, etc. etc.) It is important for us especially to be on top of what is available to him whether on purpose or by accident, and plants and flowers are no exception to that rule.
