This potential toxin is considered to be a mild risk or the symptoms are not considered serious. The risk level, however, may vary depending on the amount or part ingested (see details below). While in most cases you should be able to carefully monitor your pet at home, if any of the symptoms listed below appear, if your pet's condition worsens not improves, or if there is any change in your pet's behavior or other habits, please contact whiskerDocs or your primary veterinarian for further guidance.
Orchidaceae are a diverse flowering plant that tend to be colorful and have fragrant blooms belonging to the Orchid Family. These beautiful tropical plants come in many different shapes, sizes, and colors, but fortunately, orchids are considered mostly non-toxic to pets with the exception of the Lady Slipper Orchid, which is characterized by it's signature slipper-like pouch on the flower that the plant uses to trap insects.
