Dogs and Plants

At last summer is here and we are all enjoying some beautiful weather, many of us in the garden. But is your puppy enjoying it too?

Poisons In Your Garden

Puppies love to explore and they do this with their mouth. Spending more time in the garden during the summer will see many of them exploring the plants in our garden. Most of the plants in our garden are actually harmless to our dogs, but there are a few which can cause anything from a mild stomach discomfort to hospitalisation and sadly in some cases death. One of the most common and one of the most fatal is daffodil bulbs. Other common plants which are toxic include:

  • Azalea
  • Cyclamen
  • Delphiniums
  • Foxgloves
  • Ivy

The dogs trust have an extensive list of toxins in the garden and is worth looking up the plants in your garden to keep your puppy safe. You can find it at: dogstrust.org.uk
