My Dog / cat ate Poinsettia

poinsettia mildly toxic to dogs and cats 🌺

Poinsettias are originally from Mexico and are famous for reaching their beautiful red full bloom in December. Their bright red petals are actually leaves and, because they contain chemicals called diterpenoid euphorbol esters, they’re mildly toxic to dogs and cats. If your pets Eat poinsettia they can experience drooling, oral pain, diarrhoea and vomiting — but only if they’re ingested in large enough quantities.

Please call the surgery if you suspect your pet has eaten poinsettia leaves.
