shrubs you want to decorate your yard, don’t forget about your pet!  If your cat or dog spends a lot of time
outdoors, you need to be able to accurately identify which plants are poisonous
to your pets.  Many common household and
outdoor plants can be highly toxic to your furry friend. 
Here are a few plants we recommend avoiding this spring.

Poisonous Plants:
  • Tulips
  • Sago Palm
  • Spanish Thyme
  • Rhododendron
  • Yew
