Holiday seasons are laden with celebratory festivities. Food, family, and fun are usually on the agenda and many of our agendas follow a traditional pattern. Just as our schedules become a tradition from year to year, there are many gifts and traditional symbols of these holiday seasons that must be present or “it’s just not” that holiday! For example: “It’s just not Thanksgiving until all the men fall asleep in front of the t.v. “watching” the football game!” Or, “It’s just not the forth of July until Uncle Eugene tries to set himself on fire lighting the fireworks!” You get the picture! 🙂
Calla Lilies are toxic to both dogs and cats
Easter lilies, stargazer lilies, and Asiatic lilies are all very toxic to cats.
Tulips and Hyacniths– toxic to dogs and cat- all of the plant is toxic but it is very concentrated in the bulb
Daffodils– Toxic to cats and dogs
Crocus– highly toxic to cats and dogs
If you think your pet has eaten part or all of one of the above plants or bulbs call us at 301-631-6900. Remove any of the plant that may still be in your pet’s mouth. It’s always a good idea to bring along any of the uneaten part of the plant with you to confirm identification and which parts were ingested. You can also call ASPCA Animal Poison Control at 1-888-426-4435 to help determine treatment recommendations.
Here at KAH, we want you to enjoy your favorite flowers of the season. We hope that with the information above you can do this while avoiding any mishaps so that “it’s just not” a stressful event as well!
