The home and garden can be a minefield of poisonous plants for our pets. Many common plants found in your home, backyard, or acreage can be toxic to your dog, cat or horse.

In 2009, the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center handled more than 140,000 cases of pets exposed to toxic substances. Don’t leave it up to Fido or Fluffy to keep themselves safe.   The information in the Petoxins application is compiled from the ASPCA’s expert team of toxicologists in an effort to keep your dog, cat, and horse safe and poison-free.

Petoxins offers:

Use Petoxins when shopping for new houseplants or additions to your garden as well as to identify plants already in your home or yard that may be toxic - prevention is key to avoiding accidental exposure.

Please note that the information contained in our plant lists is not meant to be all-inclusive, but rather a compilation of the most frequently encountered plants. As always, if you suspect your pet may have ingested a poisonous substance, contact your local veterinarian.


Keep the animals you care for safe and poison-free.
