Pet warning, toxic plants

By Tanayah Wakefield

Some pet owners might be surprised to know that many plants around the home and garden are poisonous and may be toxic to their furry friends.

Plant toxicity is more common than you may think, with local veterinarians seeing cases at their clinics. This can be avoided if we know which plants to look out for.

It is believed that no plant can be labelled truly ‘safe’ as they all impact different systems in the body in some way or another.

Symptoms range from mild to highly toxic, even if only ingested in a small amount. Common symptoms to look out for include vomiting, diarrhoea, weakness, lethargy, loss of appetite, shock, tremors, depression and paralysis.
