Feline Emergency :: Poisonous Plants Toxic to Cats
(Updated 2005)

 

The following poisonous plant index lists common household plants, outdoor greenery, as well as wild varieties of plants, shrubs, trees, leafy fruit, herb plants, etc. While this list is extensive, it is by no means a complete list of known plants toxic to animals. It is important to remember that although certain plants listed here, such as aloe vera and poinsettas, may not be lethally toxic, it is never safe to assume that certain PARTS of these plants are not equally as toxic or potentially lethal if ingested, or if large amounts are ingested. Remember that toxicity can occur when certain leaves, stems, buds, flower petals, roots or leaf and stem secretions are ingested.

If at any time you feel that your kitty has eaten, ingested, or come into contact with any of the plants listed here, do not hesitate to have your kitty seen by your vet or an emergency vet immediately. Time is of the essence in most toxicities, and prompt, agressive treatment is necessary to ensure your kitty's health and survival. In the event of an emergency involving a toxic plant, call your vet immediately!
