Can cause vomiting and tremors. The 5 most dangerous plants for pets
some indoor plants can be toxic to animals. Their presence in the house can cause vomiting and tremors in pets. In particular, we are talking about cats and dogs.
According to Flowercard experts, aloe vera, tulips, peace lily, and jade plants are dangerous to animal health, according to Express.
Tulips contain glycosides that are present in all colors of the lily family. And the most toxic part of the plant is the bulb, and after being eaten (which is often the case in animals), it can cause symptoms such as vomiting and hypersalivation.
Owners also like to decorate their home with a peace lily. However, a plant with large white flowers can irritate pets' mouths.
Aloe vera is also popular, but if your pet eats it, it may suffer from tremors and vomiting. That's because this flower contains anthraquinone glycosides, which are metabolized by intestinal bacteria to form compounds that increase the amount of mucus in the colon.
The subspecies of the jade tree, the oval fat ty and the zamioculcas, are dangerous to the health of cats and dogs. Their toxins can cause symptoms such as abdominal pain and vomiting.
