Sago Palm Plant- Dangerous or Fatal to pets!
Certain plants can be very dangerous to many pets. For example, the poinsettia plant that you usually see during Christmas time can cause pets to have an upset stomach or gastrointestinal problems. However, there are also many other plants that can be deadly to pets. The Sago Palm plant is a popular house plant with dark leaves and a hairy trunk and is extremely dangerous to pets. It can cause vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, depression, seizures and liver failure, so be sure to keep your pets away from this plant. Many pet owners are not aware of certain plants that can cause their pets to be sick, so it is extremely important to keep all plants away from pets until you are sure if the plant is safe or not. It is always a good idea to check with your veterinarian to see which plants are harmful to your pets.
