Not Pet Safe


They get Pet Questions for their Plants:

By Dr. Susan Baker

Question: I have had a Kalanchoe plant for several months and a good friend visited me over the holidays and told me it is toxic to my cat! Is it true? I love the pretty flowers and my cat Jessibelle has never touched it. Do I have to get rid of it?

Answer: Good question Monique! Unfortunately, the Kalanchoe plant is listed as one of the top plants to cause toxic issues for pets! The plant contains bufodienolides that can cause vomiting and diarrhea and in severe cases can cause abnormalities in heart rate and rhythm….

The ASPCA animal poison control center has a nice website on poisonous plants that you can review at www.napcc.aspca.org.
