The 12 Most Common Plants That Are Toxic To Cats And Dogs

Cats and dogs don’t usually know what things make them sick, so their curious nature occasionally gets the best of them. To keep your pets safe, avoid having any of these common plants around your home.

This visual guide, from Pots Planters and More, provides information from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and Texas A&M regarding toxic plants that will harm or kill your pets.

Not only does it list the plants, like castor bean, dumbcane and oleander, it also lists what parts of the plant are toxic, how much of it is considered to be harmful and warning signs that may signal your pet being poisoned.

It also features photographs of each plant so you know exactly what you’re looking for. The ASPCA’s Poison Control hotline in the US receives around 150,000 calls due to accidental pet poisonings, so it’s very important you keep these plants away from your pets. You can view the entire graphic below.
