I also have handout from Merck Veterinary Manual.   It list plants by name, common name, signs, animals affected, and treatment.  

 

 

If you suspect your animal may have ingested any potential toxic plant or substance, has clinical signs/ symptoms, please contact Dr. Christina Frick with Frick Vet Services immediately.  Take a sample of the suspected toxin, plant, packaging with you to the vet.  The sooner we start treatment the better survival rate we have.
