How to Keep Your Home Healthy and Pet-Friendly
Go room by room to see how you can keep your home safe for both you and your furry family members.
Backyard and Garden: Palms and Pooches
Mostly found in the South and in warm locations, the sago palm tree is highly poisonous to dogs. “Even though they don’t look like a dog would chew on them, we get calls all the time and they can cause severe liver failure,” says Dr. Lee. If you see that your dog has vomited up part of a sago plant, call your vet right away. If you have these trees in your yard, always keep your dog supervised when he’s outside, or fence off the area so he can’t get to it. “Always call for help right away. The sooner you identify the problem the sooner we can fix it, the less expensive, and the easier it will be to treat.”
