Educating Our Pet Owners

Some animals are more curious than others, and while some may watch with disinterest as you place seasonal poinsettias around your home, other animals cannot resist sampling a new interesting addition. Knowing the difference between a harmless houseplant, or a highly poisonous one, may just save the life of your much-loved pet. At our Trumbull Connecticut Animal Hospital, our vets believe that by educating pet owners, they are made aware of potential hazards, and better equipped to prevent any accidents.

Poisonous Plants for Pets

Some plants are more toxic than others: Castor Bean Plant - Ricinus communis,

Elephants Ear - Caladium hortulanum and all Lillies are three of the most poisonous plant types for cats and dogs, while there are many others that can affect smaller animals. Early symptoms of poisoning often include vomiting, and if you suspect that your pet has been poisoned, getting to a vet for immediate help is essential. Our staff at Trumbull Animal Hospital are available to respond to any emergency.

Know your immediate environment

Not only house plants can be toxic. Know what is growing in your garden and around your property. The ASPCA (American Society of Prevention of Cruelty) has a comprehensive online list of toxic and non-toxic plants for animals, while our Veterinarian at Trumbull Animal Clinic will be happy to answer any concerns you have.
