Plants Your Dog Should Never Eat

When your dog gets into the wild, open world, he is often curious about new sights and these can include plants. Plants grow abundantly all over the neighborhood, and we even have a few nice plants in our homes. Do you want what plants you should let your dog eat? Here’s a list of plants your dog must avoid, and why. If you find out your dog has ingested any of these, be sure you contact your vet for assistance. ASPC also operates a 24-hour hotline for pet poisoning at 1-888-426-4435.

Common Household Plants: Aloe, Oleander


Do you have an aloe plant in the home? Aloe is a great soother of cuts and burns, and it also has a great fragrance. Unfortuantely, when dogs and cats ingest aloe, they can have diarrhea and vomiting. If you have an aloe plant in your home, put it up where your animals can’t get it, such as in an area that’s high.

Oleander is a pretty plant, but it can be deadly to dogs. Dogs, cats and other pets who ingest oleander can suffer from diarrhea, difficulty breathing, cardiac failure and even death. Don’t let your pets get into this flower, no matter how drawn they are to it.
