Default Poisonious Plants

This is a page from my local news website www.kvbc.com . It's a list of some of the plants that are poisonious to pets, and the symptoms if they have ingested them. I have copied and pasted it below.

Symptoms of Plant Poisoning
Swollen tongue
Refusal of food
Pale gums or tongue
Abdominal pain
Convulsions
Diarrhea
Severe or persistent vomiting (please note that it is not uncommon for pets to vomit after eating or chewing plants - the keywords here are "persistent" and/or "severe")

The meteorologist on www.kvbc.com is a huge animal lover. he puts all kinds of articles like this up for people to be aware. he has pictures of his yellow lab, jordan, on there. and he has a section where you can e-mail him pics of your pets, and he'll try to put them on the news/website if its their birthday. chico is up there on the site, because he just had a b-day on may 25th.

if i see anymore articles on there, or if i come across any that would be of interest to everyone, i'll definitely post them.
