The Most Poisonous Plants for Dogs in Waldorf, MD

Dogs can be curious. And if they are near a pet, they may decide to eat it. Unfortunately, there are many plants that can make your dog sick or are poisonous to dogs. Here are a few of the most poisonous plants to dogs. However, be aware that this is not an all-inclusive list. Do your research or ask your vet for a list of all of the plants that may be poisonous to your dog.

The leaves on an azalea plant are highly toxic to dogs. Ingesting just a few can lead to oral irritation, followed by vomiting and diarrhea. If your dog eats a lot or is small, their blood pressure can drop, they can fall into a coma or even die. 


Any part of the daffodil plant can make your dog sick. But the bulbs are the worst part. Ingesting the bulb or a lot of other parts of the plant can lead to your dog having diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, heart arrhythmias, convulsions and a drop in blood pressure. 


Just like with the daffodil, the entire tulip is poisonous. But the bulb is the worst part. If your dog eats a tulip, they may experience oral irritation, a large amount of drooling and nausea and vomiting.

  • Autumn Crocus
