Dogs are inquisitive. Turn your back for five minutes, and Fido has dug up your prized Dahlias or rampaged through the vegetable patch.
But the garden is not always the safest place for man’s best friend.
PLANTS & GARDEN PRODUCTS CAN KILL
From slug pellets to chewing on the seeds of the spiky Digitalis (foxglove), there are many things in the garden that can be toxic if ingested by your dog.
Identify some plants, their seeds and bulbs that are dangerous with this infographic and make sure they have no place in your garden. And learn which garden substances can be fatal too.
OTHER PLANTS & PRODUCTS CAUSE VOMITING & DIARRHOEA
Unfortunately, there are other plants and products that can cause Fido to become ill. Although not fatal, the after effects of chomping on some common garden products and plants can leave dogs vomiting as well as suffering diarrhoea.
If your pooch has pre-existing health problems, this can lead to bigger problems. Save an expensive trip to the vets by removing plants and products that could make your dog ill.
