Holiday Plants Dangerous To Pets
- Pine Christmas Trees: opt for a fir or spruce, instead of pine, if you like to put up a live tree. Pine trees aren’t toxic to dogs, but they can be to cats and can cause liver damage and even death. Be sure to sweep up needles every day and cover the tree base with a skirt to block pet from drinking water.
- Poinsettias: while not totally toxic to pets, poinsettia leaves produce a sap that can irritate a dog's or cat’s mouth and esophagus.
- Holly & Mistletoe: Holly leaves and berries can cause vomiting, drooling and abdominal pain. If ingested in large amounts, more severe reactions can occur, such as a drop in blood pressure and heart rate, breathing problems, seizures and even death.
