Toxic Plants



Cats can be deadly to plants, but more than a few plants are quite capable of getting revenge. Hear what the ASPCA/National Animal Poison Control Center, a source for veterinarians, says are some of the bad seeds. Most "just" make your pet sick, but a few of them can kill. If your pet has tangled with any of these, call your veterinarian. Don't forget: Even "good" plants can cause problems if they've been sprayed with insecticide. Browse the ASPCA's Toxic and Non-Toxic Plant List for additional information.
