    Default 5 holliday poisonous plants for your bulldog

    I found this simple yet informative article on Dogster ,hope some of you might find it interesting



    Poinsettia: This red-leafed plant doesn't actually live up to all the hype -- it's actually only mildly toxic. However, even mild toxicity can be fatal when combined with other conditions. Better safe than sorry.
    Mistletoe: While the mistletoe may be a symbol of merry-making, it's toxic if swallowed -- but not as toxic as once believed. Again -- better safe than sorry!
    Holly: Holly berries may be the most attractive to dogs, but the leaves, bark, and seeds are just as poisonous. The effect of holly on dogs is similar to that of caffeine and chocolate.
    Amaryllis: Less common than the other plants on this list, amaryllis causes abdominal pain and convulsions, so keep an eye out for it!
    Pine needles: Probably the least of your concerns here, pine needles may cause harm if swallowed, puncturing intestines or stomach lining. The tree oils might irritate mucous membranes, but just keeping your tree area tidy should prevent any problems.
    Signs of poisoning may be:

    Abdominal pain
    Coma
    Convulsions
    Diarrhea
    Drooling
    Irregular heartbeat
    Labored breathing
    Lethargy
    Swollen limbs
    Vomiting
    If you suspect your dog may have been poisoned, please seek immediate medical attention.

    Thanks for posting this Pati…
    I don't have these in my home because of allergies, but it's great to at least be aware of the dangers!!!
