Have you ever watched a dog explore? Dogs follow their noses, and pick up and often chew and swallow the objects that pique their curiosity. Regardless if those objects are even edible! Therefore, as dog owners or dog admirers, we should know which plants contain toxins that can harm pets. Even though your dog may not commonly dig or eat plants, he or she might get enticed to follow a chipmunk or mole. Pets may come across any number of plants while outside, especially if they pick up the scent of other animals. Below is a list of outdoor plants that you may find in your yard that are poisonous to dogs.
These plants are from the be.chewy website which includes a list of 50 indoor and outdoor plants. I chose plants commonly found in the backyards of the North Eastern U.S., including common vegetable garden plants. For the complete plant list, visit the be.chewy website.
