I have quite a few plants in my home and garden. I knew some plants were poisonous but never dreamed there were so many. I thought I would share this list with you. Some of the following plants can be toxic to your dog. Check with your veterinarian before having them in your home. Aloe Vera Apple (seeds) Apricot (pit) Autumn Crocus Baby's Breath Branching Ivy Buddhist Pine Calla Lily Ceriman Cherry (seeds and wilting leaves) Cineraria Cordatum Cornstalk Plant Cuban Laurel Cycads Daffodil Dieffenbachia Dragon Tree Easter Lily (especially cats!)

Same goes for cats and poisionous plants. We don't have plants in here except for one aloe vera plant that is sitting up on a high shelf. the cat can't even get to it. LOL My mother has a room full of plants, but the dog is a smart dog and knows not to go near them. When I was little and still lived at home, we had a room full of plants, and the dog that we had when I was a kid just didn't go in that room.
