Lilies: Beautiful but deadly.Blog-1_Lillies.jpg


What’s better than strolling through a park on a beautiful day and seeing the flowers in bloom?  Well, if you’re a cat, plenty, actually.  See, those flowers that we find so pretty can actually be incredibly dangerous.  Should cats ingest lilies—including peace, Peruvian, and calla lilies—they could be at serious risk of sickness, even death.


These plants contain harmful toxins that can affect cats in the following ways…


Common signs to watch for:

  • Lack of appetite
  • Lethargic
  • Hiding
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Bad breath
  • Dehydration
  • Seizures
  • Death

 If you have lilies growing in your backyard and see your cat exhibiting any of these signs, contact the Affinity Veterinary Center immediately. The sooner you bring in your cat, the sooner we will get him stopping and smelling the roses again.
