Are Magnolia poisonous to humans?
According to the Washington State University Extension, the seeds of Southern magnolia are poisonous if eaten by humans (the wild birds and the squirrels do not seem to be adversely affected). Nor, according to the ASPCA, are they poisonous to pets (either cats or dogs).
Even though a magnolia tree is not technically poisonous to dogs or cats, it's not part of their typical diet. Eating parts of a magnolia tree can lead to problems if your furry friend ingests too much.
- According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, camellia is non-toxic to dogs if touched or ingested. There are no known toxins contained in either camellia or tea plants. The most you might expect to see is a bit of vomiting or diarrhea, generally due to the ingestion of plant matter.
- It's entirely appropriate to wonder whether artichokes and asparagus, vegetables rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, are safe to offer our cats. It is neither toxic nor dangerous for our cats to consume in very small portions, but neither is it truly beneficial to them. Cats are obligate carnivores.
- Humans: Burning and swelling of lips, mouth, and tongue, difficulty speaking or swallowing, vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. Cats and dogs: Information regarding the toxicity of peace lilies is somewhat conflicting, but it is listed on all animal safety sites, including the ASPCA's as toxic to dogs and cats.
