There are more than 700 plants that produce physiologically active or toxic substances that are dangerous to pets.

Some of the effects of these poisonous plants can be fairly moderate like mild nausea, and some are so severe that they will cause death. As with most things, different species, amounts ingested and the size of your pet can make a big difference on what happens.

Veterinary Pet Insurance has identified some of the more common plants that you may not know could be harmful to your pets and they have provided this helpful infographic to take along when shopping for plants.
