All•Boro Reviews The Dangers of Holiday Plants

by | Dec 5, 2020

Yay!! The holidays are here! I’m sure we love everything about the holidays, including the holiday plants.

But did you know that almost ALL of the holiday plants we enjoy are poisonous to our fur friends?? Some of the plants in this category include…

  • Poinsettias
  • Holly
  • Mistletoe
  • Amaryllis (belladonna)….

All of these plants can cause gastrointestinal problems and even death in some cases!

And while we don’t always think of this as a holiday plant, but the Christmas tree itself is also poisonous to our furry little family members. The oils produced by fir trees can cause vomiting and the tree needles can cause gastrointestinal irritation.

So while these plants are a typical part of our holiday decorations please keep them at a safe distance away from any and all pets…and we will all enjoy a happy and safe holiday season!
