Plants Poisonous to Dogs

If you are a dog owner, the beautiful plant on the front porch could be your canine companion's worst enemy. There are dozens of bulbs, ferns, trees, and plants that are poisonous and even fatal to your pet. While in some cases just parts of a plant (such as the bark, leaves, seeds, berries, roots, tubers, spouts, etc.) might be poisonous. As a rule it is good practice to eliminate the plant in its entirety to keep your dog safe.
