Gardening is a beautiful way to express yourself and a great place to enjoy the company of your pet friends. As a pet owner you should know that there could be dangers in your garden in the form of plants and flowers. With the help of the San Antonio Botanical Garden, we hope to share with you some of the most common poisonous plants for your pets. This is not a complete list of plants that can be harmful for your pet. Please consult with your veterinarian if you suspect that your pet may have been poisoned. If you would like to learn more about poisonous plants please visit the Pet Poison Helpline or call the 24-Hour Emergency Vet Poison Hotline (fees may apply) at 1-888-426-4435.
