Crufts 2022, canine-friendly gardening, STECS donating medication campaign and sofa Scotties are the topics STECS Welfare Officer Cath Marchbank tackles in our latest edition of Scottie MOT from London Scottie Radio.

Checking out the tulips. The flowers are poisonous for dogs.

During the show Cath mentioned a service that helps identify toxins which canines could meet on their adventures. LSC believes it is better if we can avoid the toxic plants in the first place and with Spring on the way, we therefore share here a list of dangerous plants as compiled by charity Dogs Trust. The advisory at the top of the list is also very useful to note: “Dogs Trust assumes no liability for the content of the following list. This does not represent a complete list of all poisonous plants and is only intended as a guide. Please contact your veterinary surgeon for advice or treatment immediately if you think your pet has eaten any of the following plants and is showing a bad reaction. Your pet may also have a sensitivity or allergy to a plant that is not on the list, so always be vigilant and seek help if you are worried about your pet’s health.”
