Plants contain a number of chemicals, many of which are used for medication and as therapeutic agents for animals and humans. However, ingestion of the wrong chemical, or of certain chemicals in high doses, can have dangerous consequences. Not all plants are dangerous, but in Florida, and throughout the country, there are some plants that are highly dangerous to dogs, cats, and livestock. On this show, Dr. Chris Martyniuk, a toxicologist, will discuss many of these plants, along with the clinical signs to look for that would indicate your pet is experiencing plant toxicity, and when to call the veterinarian. He’ll also talk about ways that you, and your pet, can stay safe from poisons lurking in the garden.
