Stunning tulips in many colors have glycosides and alkaloids in them that inhibit protein synthesis in animals if consumed. Cats, dogs and horses are highly affected when tulip poisoning occurs. It shows fatal symptoms like nausea, seizures and tremors.

The large white tiger lily flowers can be fatal if your cat nibbles them. The plant’s toxicity levels are so high that consuming the water of the vase with lily stems may cause kidney ailments in cats.

We find marigold flowers in every decoration. This is because we consider them auspicious, but these flowers are not good for your pets. A responsible pet parent must be able to distinguish between non-toxic marigold species from toxic ones. So, never plant a toxic species of marigold in your pet’s surroundings. If there is a suspicion of ingestion of a few marigold flowers, book a session with your veterinarian doctor to avoid any mishap.
