      How To Recognise The Signs Of Plant Poisoning In Pets 

      If you're worried your cat or dog has chewed on the Tulips call your vet straight away. They'll let you know how best to proceed. Some signs of poisoning can include:

      • Vomiting
      • Diarrhea 
      • Drooling
      • Weakness & Lethargy 

      We hope this helps inform your next flower purchase! A lot of pets aren't a worry when it comes to chewing the plants, but puppies and kittens particularly get into everything and some never outgrow it! Keep this in mind if that's your pupper or kitten.
