For curious dogs or cats, it’s difficult to resist the allure of plants. While many plants are simple gastrointestinal irritants, some have the potential to cause life-threatening toxicity. Thus, it is helpful for clinicians to be familiar with common plants that have the potential to cause severe toxicosis in small animals. Plants that will be discussed in this lecture include: Lilies (Lilium spp. and Hemerocallis spp.), foxglove (Digitalis lannata and D. purpuea), oleander (Nerium oleander), Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis), kalanchoe (Kalanchoe spp.), rhododendrons and azaleas (Rhododendron spp.), laurels (Kalmia spp.), cycad palm (Cycas spp., Macrozamia spp.) and many others.
