    daffodil harmful to dogs

    Daffodils are harmful to dogs

    Spring has nearly sprung but watch out as Daffodils, if eaten, are poisonous to dogs!
    All parts of the daffodil plant, which is a member of the lily family are toxic – especially the bulb which can prove fatal if consumed. If a dog eats or chews the bulbs, leaves, flowers, or even drink the water these flowers stand in, it can develop signs of poisoning. Cases of daffodil poisoning peaks around Easter, with most dog owners unaware of their potential danger.

    The lethal dose can be as low as 15g of bulbs – this could be as little as just one bulb!

    Symptoms of poisoning:

    Diarrhoea, Vomiting, Staggering, Collapse, Unconsciousness, in severe cases Coma, Death in a few hours.

    Phone your Vet immediately if you think your pet has eaten any toxic plants, flowers, or in fact any toxic items or substances.

    Owners simply aren’t aware of these seasonal dangers, share this message to all your dog loving friends

    As one of the most ancient Chinese dog breeds the Tibetan Mastiff was used for centuries to guard monasteries, legend has it that both Genghis Khan and Lord Buddha kept them.

    More recently, however, they have become highly-prized status symbols for China’s new rich. The dogs are thought to be a pure “Chinese” breed and they are rarely found outside Tibet.
