Are poinsettias and mistletoe toxic to our pets?

Poinsettias have an irritating sap that may cause tummy upset but is not life-threatening. 

American mistletoe (Phoradendron spp) also causes tummy and though it contains compounds that are cardiac depressants, it is extremely rare to see any clinically significant cardiac effects in dogs or cats that ingest it.

Merry Christmas and be safe!
