We’ve all heard that you shouldn’t let your dog chew on your poinsettia because it will kill him. But, is that really true? According to the ASPCA’s website, you should be more worried about the following plants:
Peace Lily (AKA Mauna Loa Peace Lily)
Some or all parts of these plants can cause, at the least, stomach upset, and at worst, death. In contrast, poinsettia’s being fatal is just an urban legend. While a pet who eats a lot of poinsettia may develop an upset tummy, he is not likely to die from the snack.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
