13 Rabbits October 9th, 2008 05:34 PM

I agree with diamondsmom, throwing up blood would defiantly throw up warning bells.... go to the vets ASAP.. keep us posted

Thank you for this list! We take both of our dogs hiking quite often, and let them off the leash (don't tell the ranger) so it's good to know what to watch out for and when we should leash them back up!

LavenderRott August 10th, 2009 10:11 AM

No, grass isn't generally poisonous.

The yellow stuff is more then likely stomach bile. Most dogs eat a bit of grass if they have an upset tummy.

See if your pup wants a bit of a snack. :)

Vet student needing help
 
Hi,
i have an assessment on intrinsically poisonous pets to livestock and domestic animals, resulting in death etc. For this assessment, i need to find COMMONLY INGESTED poisonous plants.
I have read all the lists, but can't find if they are frequently ingested etc.
Are there any articles available on incidence rates of poisoning from plants?

For dogs & cats i've got:
- lillies (cat)
- cycad
- azalea (cant find incidence rate)
- grapes (have sufficient info)
- colocasia (elephant ear) and foxglove (need info on incidence).

and livestock
- oleander
- heliotrope
- patersons curse (have suffiicient info)
- hairy panic (have sufficient info)
- bracken fern (have sufficienct info)

Any help is greatly appreciated, or knowledge on commonly ingested plants.

mummummum April 4th, 2010 05:49 AM

Wouldn't HSUS, the ASPCA, ATSDR and the CDC have breakdowns?

greMlin72 April 6th, 2010 10:40 PM

...
 
that's what i've thought except there doesn't seem to be any available info.
I've sent all three emails and have had very little luck.

thanks

The AVMA may be able to help you. They have a "Household Hazards" brochure with this info,

[COLOR="Blue"][B]• Lily of the Valley, oleander, azalea, yew, foxglove,
rhododendron and kalanchoe may cause heart problems
if ingested.
• Rhubarb leaves and shamrock contain substances that
can produce kidney failure. Certain types of lilies (Lilium
and Hemerocallis species) are highly toxic to cats, resulting
in kidney failure — even if only small amounts are ingested.
• Sago palms (Cycad species) can cause liver damage,
especially if the nut portion of the plant is consumed.
• Additionally, fungi such as certain varieties of mushrooms
can cause liver damage or other illnesses.
A few other potentially harmful plants include philodendron,
corn plant, castor bean, mother-in-law’s tongue, Hibiscus
and hydrangea.[/B][/COLOR]

Maybe they would have statistics available upon request as well.

sugarcatmom April 7th, 2010 07:25 AM

Cornell University might be a good source of info. Here is a link to their poisonous plant database: [url]http://www.ansci.cornell.edu/plants/index.html[/url]

[QUOTE=wb1;914514]is poison ivy harmful to dogs?[/QUOTE]

Their fur helps to protect them but it is if the oil comes into contact with their skin. Also, if it is on their fur and you pet them then it will affect you.

Here's some info ....

LittleMushroom August 6th, 2010 11:51 AM

I am confused,,,so is Yucca extract/powder/tablets poisonous to dogs? Since it is made from its roots. But I've read a lot of good things about Yucca on dogs:confused:

i dont think theres any of these types of plants near my area so im glad. thanks for the list btw. :D

Black walnuts should be on the list as well. Nuts and shells are poisonous for dogs.

The mold that is present in a lot of walnuts is what causes the problem, and it's toxic for horses and dogs, but not humans or cats.

We had an incident with black walnuts this past winter.

If the grass just been treated for weeds it can be very toxic to dogs. I try not to let Marty eat any grass as I never know what is on it .

Barkingdog May 24th, 2012 12:50 PM

Pennies are also very toxic to pets , they can kill a dog.

I hope this link is OK to post.

Thank you
 
[COLOR="Cyan"][/COLOR] Browsing site and noticed this post from Lavender. I want to have plants in my house and some of what are mentioned obviously are not going to be inside. I have a puppy and a few weeks ago he knocked over my attempt on growing an Avocado tree. Left quite a lot of mud on carpet anywho this plant is probably going to outlive me as it still is only rooting. I have copied and pasted for reference:angel:

Plants Toxic to Dogs
 
Yes there are so many plant that are poisonous to ours dogs. There are few most toxic to dogs..

1. Grapes -- The toxicity of grapes to dogs was once thought to be an urban legend, but it's true; even a small serving can cause vomiting and diarrhea, while larger amounts can lead to kidney failure. Researchers aren't yet sure what exactly causes this reaction, whether pesticides or a fungal toxin.

2. Mushrooms -- While there are plenty of great-tasting, perfectly safe mushrooms out there, dogs just don't seem capable of discerning the difference between the edible and the toxic. To be on the safe side, it's best not to allow dogs to eat any wild mushrooms at all, unless you can confidently identify the species yourself.Amanita, Galerina and Lepiota species are especially dangerous because they contain toxins that cause a series of worsening symptoms, from vomiting to swelling in the brain

3-3. Marijuana -- For most people, the likelihood of your pet gaining access to marijuana -- whether on a live plant or not -- is relatively low. But regardless of your view of marijuana's safety for human use, it has absolutely no benefits for your pet.After ingesting marijuana, a dog can experience symptoms like slow heart rate, lack of coordination, disorientation, drooling and tremors that can persist for up to three days.

4-Lilies -- While lilies are well-known as a serious danger to cats, certain varieties are highly toxic to dogs as well. The peace lily, calla lily, amaryllis, lily of the valley, autumn crocus and the common houseplant, giant Dracaena or palm lily, are all deemed dangerous to dogs by the ASPCA. Ingestion of lilies can cause gastrointestinal upset, depression, anorexia and tremors.

5-Black walnuts -- Dropping from black walnut trees by the thousands, the nuts themselves don't contain anything that can harm your dog

6-Sago palm -- Often used in landscaping and as houseplants, sago palms develop seed pods that are often very tempting to dogs.
Unfortunately, the whole plant and the seeds in particular contain a potent toxin called cycasin that can be fatal, even if the dog only eats a single seed

7-7. Azalea -- A member of the widely toxic genus rhododendron, the azalea is found in many varieties all over the United States and is commonly used as an ornamental flowering shrub in landscaping.Ingestion of just a few leaves can cause serious issues like digestive upset, drooling, loss of appetite, weakness and leg paralysis

8-8. Castor bean -- This ornamental tropical plant, also used as a crop for castor oil, contains the toxic protein ricin.At the least, eating this plant can burn a dog's mouth and throat and lead to excessive thirst, vomiting and diarrhea

9-9. Daffodils -- Among the first blooms to herald the arrival of spring, daffodils are a cheerful addition to the garden, but they contain poisonous alkaloids that can cause vomiting, excessive salivation, diarrhea, convulsions, tremors and heart problems.

10-10. Dieffenbachia (Dumb Cane) -- With its broad variegated leaves, the dieffenbachia is often recommended as an ideal houseplant for natural air purification.

So please take care of our dogs form these plants.

Mary
