Dangerous Pet Foods

It is amazing how many humans are not aware that many indoor and outdoor plants and foods that are harmless to them can poison their most important family members. A friend of ours, a fellow orange tabby, nearly died after his human let him chew on a lily in their garden, and another friend, a cute dachshund, had to be taken to the vet after he tried to clean his teeth by chewing some walnuts after playing with them. We checked with our vet, and here is the “don’t let your beloved pet chew on this stuff list” for you:
