While highly toxic to cats AND dogs, Lillies were the flower most responsible for cat visits to the vet in 2023.

According to certified veterinarian, Amanda Takiguchi, DVM, “Even eating a small amount of this flower can cause deadly kidney failure in cats. Multiple species of lilies are toxic to cats, so it’s best to avoid lilies altogether.”

Keeping flowers in mind that are healthy and unhealthy for your dog is a good thing for when walking them in your neighborhood or planting your own flower gardens.
