, just one more, last one I promise, because I completely agree with you when you say
|And anyway, if a plant shows up on even ONE list, that is enough for me, even if it is not on any other list. Why take a chance?
I'd just like to add, info from different sources can drive a person crazy when searching for truly reliable info. How do we know which piece of info is correct and which particular plant a piece of info applies to?
For example. In this article:http://www.housepetmagazine.com/pois...lants_dogs.htm
|According to Dr. William Buck, director of the National Animal Poison Control Center (NAPCC) at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in Urbana, "a lot of ornamental plants have irritating sap that will cause an animal to salivate or maybe vomit and have diarrhea."
He says that plants like the hibiscus and those in the Easter lily family, which are not toxic to people, may be very harmful to pets........
(I happened to find this when I was reading on hibiscus/Rose of Sharon)
Different info on hibiscus in this article:http://www.ehow.com/facts_5831518_hi...ants-pets.html
|Some hibiscus plants, also known as the Rose of Sharon and Rose of China, are toxic to cats, dogs and horses, according to the The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). However, not all species of hibiscus plants are poisonous to pets.
