7 Perennials Plants That Are Toxic to Pets


Homiful.com -- Every dog or cat owner knows that their pet will chew on whatever it can get its teeth into, whether it's a toy, a shoe, or a ball of yarn. And, at some time, your pet will undoubtedly seek out plants and flowers for a bite or two. This "7 Perennials Plants That Are Toxic to Pets" should be on your list of things to avoid if at all possible.

Elephant Ear


Elephant ears have some of the most eye-catching foliage you'll find in a garden. Massive, heart-shaped leaves are available in black, purple, emerald green, chartreuse, yellow, or a combination of hues. These tropical perennials' leaves irritate the mouth and can induce swelling, drooling, and vomiting. Be sure to keep pets and small children away from this plant.



They not only give rich foliage in gardens, but they are also simple to maintain. This makes them a popular low-maintenance plant for both new and experienced gardeners. A pet who consumes the leaves of this shade plant may suffer from gastrointestinal upset.



These autumn flowers, Chrysanthemum, are available in orange, red, yellow, and even white. Any portion of this fall flower might trigger gastrointestinal troubles and lack of coordination in your furry-buddy.

Carnation/Sweet William


Sweet William plants thrive in full sun, wet soil, warm temperatures, and moderate watering. Sweet Williams may be planted in either the spring or summer. Although they are not as dangerous as other perennials, they might cause slight stomach issues in your beloved pet. 

Aloe vera


Aloe has fleshy leaves that hold water and have a thick, waxy covering that keeps plants from drying out. These characteristics make aloe vera plants well suited to grow in dry settings, including indoor living. 

Aloe vera is beneficial to the skin and burns in humans. Not so much for dogs and cats. Vomiting, diarrhea, and trembling are examples of eating-related symptoms.



When planted appropriately, peonies will thrive and blossom for decades. Plant the bare roots in the fall or early spring. The garden and bouquet filler is popular among Southerners, but it can cause vomiting and diarrhea in our pets.

Lily of the valley 


This beautiful, creeping ground cover blooms in the spring and develops to a height of six to eight inches. The arching stems contain tiny, nodding, waxy white bell-shaped blooms that are extremely sweet-scented. Keep in mind that it can cause significant symptoms in both humans and pets, such as vomiting, cardiac arrhythmias, seizures, coma, and, eventually, death.
