Completing your landscaping with the perfect plants can take your home to the next level, increasing its value while also providing a beautiful appearance. There are many beautiful and popular plants, however, that are toxic for dogs. JGM dog doors in homes throughout Phoenix allow your dog to come in and out whenever they please, but when there are toxic substances in your yard, this freedom can become a problem. Below is a list of seven common and extremely toxic plants to avoid planting.
Smaller dogs are more affected than larger dogs. Call a vet as soon as possible. Symptoms typically occur 10-15 minutes after ingestion.
Never allow your dogs to be near tobacco plants or products like canned chew and cigarettes. Make sure they do not have access to spit cups or ash trays either.
While all of these plants are toxic to your pooch, there are plenty of beautiful plants you can safely plant in your yard. Marigolds, blue daisies, butterfly irises, bottlebrushes, roses, sunflowers, African daisies, and African violets are plants with spectacular flowers that can safely be planted in your backyard. If you have a garden, consider planting beets, carrots, ginger, cucumbers, strawberries, and zucchini squash. Banana trees and feather palms are dog-friendly trees as well.
