2. Don’t Decorate Home with Poisonous Plants
What type of plants you decorate your home with should also be carefully considered when dog proofing for a party. Poinsettias, commonly thought to be extremely poisonous to dogs, will not put your dog in any danger beyond an irritated stomach if consumed. The most dangerous plant for dogs, according to Dr. Wismer, is the Kalanchoe. This small potted plant has beautiful, seasonal flowers in reds and oranges but can cause serious heart problems in your dog if consumed. There are also other poisonous plants for dogs such as the daffodil, tulip and amaryllis. It’s best to consult your veterinarian for other potentially deadly decorative plants.
