Nontoxic Plants


This list contains plants that have not been reported as having systemic effects on animals or as having intense effects on the gastrointestinal tract. Any plant material ingested by an animal (as when dogs and cats ingest yard grass) may produce signs of vomiting, depression, or diarrhea. These signs are generally mild and self-limiting and often do not require any treatment.

Please note that the information contained in our plant lists is not meant to be all-inclusive, but rather a compilation of the most frequently encountered plants. For more information, contact us at napcc@aspca.org. Our email is not monitored 24/7, and should never be used to contact us with cases of suspected animal poisoning or other time-sensitive issues.

Excellent resource, Pardus, thanks!

A lot of those toxic plants are house plants.

From having raised quite a few critters and fostered many through my house, I can say, that critters can be really dumb and will eat anything, so check and double check what plants you have in your house and if they are within reach of critters.

A couple more to add to the list:

1. Grapes and Raisins are very toxic to dogs.
2. False Dandilion can cause what is called Austrailian Stringhalt in horses.

To tell the difference between a false dandilion and real dandilion is the shape of the leaves. False dandilion leaves spread out and hug the ground and have a thicker leaf. While the real dandilion look more like the salad greens you get in a reseraunt. Much thinner leaf that stand upright from the base.:2c:

That is NOT an accurate statement.

Grapes are a normal part of certain Wolves diets.

From the ASPCA...

I’ve heard that grapes and raisins are poisonous to dogs. Yes or no?
—Sheila C.

Yes, Sheila. At the current time, we know that grapes and raisins appear to cause renal failure in dogs who’ve ingested large amounts. However, we have not determined with certainty the toxic component, or the exact mechanism that causes renal failure. It is also not clear if only certain dogs are affected, or if long-term ingestions can lead to the same effects that a large one-time ingestion can. Because there are still many unknowns regarding the toxic potential of grapes and raisins, it is advisable not to give grapes or raisins to dogs in any amount.

Touche' I just had heard about it causing renal failure in dogs through my vet. I would still play it on the safeside and not let my dogs have any. A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. And also, thanks for the list I printed it off to use.

Indeed.

I was quite surprised to see wolves eating grapes, they eat a rediculous amount of them too, many many pounds worth.
