Flowers are a classic Valentine’s Day present, and lilies are a popular choice for bouquets. Although they are pretty, they present a huge health risk for your pet if ingested. Lilies in particular are one of the most deadly flowers you can bring into your home as an animal owner. Although only known to cause mild gastrointestinal upset in dogs, these flowers are extremely toxic to cats. These beautiful but deadly flowers can cause acute kidney failure in a cat after the ingestion of just one or two petals or leaves. Immediate treatment is necessary for recovery.
