Please have a read through this informative article -- some of the dangerous items may surprise you! For example: there is cyanide in apple seeds! And raisins and grapes have a cumulative effect that can destroy the kidneys!

And remember:


Common signs of poisoning include muscle tremors or seizures; vomiting and diarrhea; drooling; redness of skin, ears and eyes; and swelling and bleeding.

If you suspect your pet has consumed, inhaled or come in contact with a toxic substance, stay calm and call for help immediately.

Two more plants that are very toxic to dogs: Foxglove and Lily of the Valley. If you have Foxglove, please make sure your pets can't go near it.:thmbsup:
