The weather and the gardens are certainly showing that spring is on its way.
With all of the beautiful spring flowers coming out, please think about your four legged friend. Whilst Mother Nature does, to a certain extent, tell animals what is not good for them, some dogs will eat absolutely anything.
We thought that this month we would share with you some of the most common flowers and plants that can upset your little furball's tummy. Some plants can, sadly be fatal but a lot will just make them feel groggy with a very upset tum.
Here are some of the flowers and plants that a lot of us have growing in our gardens:
African Violet, Aloe Vera, Amaryllis, Apple pips, Apricot stones, Azalea, Bluebells, Bracken, Broom, Buttercup, Christmas Rose, Chrysanthemum, Clematis, Crocus, Daffodil, Daphne, Deadly Nightshade, Easter Lily, Echium, Geranium, Hellebores, Hibiscus, Horse Chestnuts (leaves and nuts), Hyacinth, Hydrangea, Iris, Ivy, Laburnum, Lily of the Valley, Lobelia, Mallow, Narcissus, Onion, Peony, Primrose, Rape, Snowdrops, Tulip, Wisteria.

Here at Helping Hounds we try to promote responsible dog ownership
We rehome and rehabilitate dogs that come into our care. Being very small and local we rely on local support, all of our dogs do not go to new homes until we think they are ready to go. If they would benefit from being in foster for a period of time, we have a dedicated team of people that are happy to take dogs into their home and give them the love and guidance they need before going on to their furever homes.
Is this something that you might like to do? Apply to join our foster team.
