Poisonous Plants to Pets and Helpful Tips for Pet Allergies

Spring is here!

After the long winter some of us have endured, we can’t help but feel excited for beautiful spring, filled with warm weather and colorful flowers; but unfortunately, some of those beautiful flowers and plants can be poisonous and can have a negative impact on our beloved pets.

Effects of poisoning can result in discomfort, gastrointestinal issues, long-term illness, debilitation, reproductive problems, weight loss, and most severely death. Of course, we aren’t suggesting a complete ban on flowers, but at NHV we seek to empower you with knowledge—it can save a life. At the end of this blog, you will find a list of common plants to be aware of. We hope you will find this guide helpful.

Simply coming into contact with the skin can cause mild to more severe reactions.

It’s important to note that not all plants need to be ingested to cause adverse health reactions to your pets. Simply coming into contact with the skin can cause mild to more severe reactions. Be cautious when gardening, and make sure poisonous plants and leaves are cleaned up and out of pet reach. Remember to be extra vigilant with your pet babies since curious kittens and puppies are most at risk of ingesting and/ or coming into contact with poisonous plants and flowers.

If you suspect your pet has been poisoned, please seek professional care immediately. Symptoms of poisoning can vary from vomiting and diarrhea to weakness, lethargy, and collapse.

We recommend NHV Milk Thistle for liver support, NHV BK Detox to clear toxins, and NHV Tripsy for kidney support for after-emergency recovery.

Pet Seasonal Allergies

Seasonal allergies can also impact your pets’ health and well-being; however, it’s an issue that many pet owners aren’t aware of. While human allergies usually involve the respiratory system, allergies in cats and dogs normally involve skin irritation. Skin can become inflamed, and hair loss, open sores, and scabbing can occur.

To help with allergies we suggest the following:

  • Wiping down paws completely to remove allergens and toxins from paw pads, which can spread on the skin as your pet grooms himself or herself.
  • Use non-toxic cleaning agents rather than average household cleaners, which can contain harsh chemicals.
  • Support their immunity with healthy anti-inflammatory diets. A good idea would be to add NHV Stimmune and NHV Petomega 3 to their daily diet to increase immunity naturally.
  • We also suggest the Allergies Kit by NHV

    *Please include Oleander in your list. My yard is surrounded by it. I wasn’t aware of its toxicity until one of my cats chewed half a leaf and died two days later. A handful of leaves will kill a horse. People can die if they breathe the burning plant, etc
