If you live in a house and have the privilege of having a garden or a vegetable garden, you must have noticed that your Shih Tzu loves to stick his nose where it doesn’t belong, right? Animals like plants, but some plants can pose risks. So be careful, and the Bark Post website made a list of the biggest dangers for your Shih Tzu:
- Parrot’s beak
With Christmas coming, it is very common to see this plant in several places. Despite being beautiful and widely used in home decoration, the flower can cause vomiting and irritation in Shih Tzu.
The same goes for daisies. Even more toxic, this species has substances such as sesquiterpenes, lactones, and pyrethrins, which can cause vomiting, excessive salivation, and dermatitis.
- Love me
Despite the name, this flower is not friendly to our Shih Tzu. Among the symptoms caused are vomiting, diarrhea, dermatitis, and dysregulation of the urinary tract.
- With me-no-one-can
This is another poisonous flower that can cause burning, mouth irritation, excessive salivation, difficulty swallowing, and vomiting.
Although beautiful, hydrangea has a substance called cyanogenic glycoside, which can cause diarrhea and vomiting.
Many rhododendron plants, such as azaleas, have grayanotoxin. If your Shih Tzu ingests this substance, you will find him drooling, with an abnormal heartbeat, without coordination, and with signs of vomiting and diarrhea.
If your Shih Tzu eats a tulip, take him to the vet immediately. Like the previous flowers, the tulip can cause excess salivation, vomiting, diarrhea, as well as drooping.
Despite being a symbol of luck, clover, when ingested in large quantities, can be very harmful to the health of Shih Tzu.
If your Shih Tzu ingests garlic, he may vomit, urinate blood, have an abnormal heartbeat, be panting, and have a reduced level of red blood cells. So if you plant garlic at home, make a fence to keep your Shih Tzu well away from it.
Despite being very good for our hair, aloe can cause tremors, vomiting, diarrhea, and change in the Shih Tzu’s urine.
So fragrant and refreshing, who would have thought that mint, when ingested in large quantities, could cause serious liver problems for your Shih Tzu.
Another common plant in home gardens is oregano. Widely used as a seasoning, this plant can cause irritation in Shih Tzu, in addition to vomiting and diarrhea.
If your Shih Tzu invades your tomato field, he may have severe gastrointestinal irritation, diarrhea, excessive salivation, weakness, as well as behavioral changes, and a decreased heart rate.
This little plant can cause severe stomach irritation, cardiovascular collapse, and even a drop in blood pressure.
