National poison prevention should be every day
Visit the ASPCA for poison prevention tips online. If you own the popular Sago Palm house plant, BEWARE, it's highly toxic to cats and dogs. According to the ASPCA, "Since 2003, the ASPCA has seen an increase by more than 200 percent of sago palm and cycad poisonings, and 50 to 75 percent of those ingestions resulted in fatalities." You can enjoy beautiful plants, just be mindful of what you own and where you place them.
The unthinkable doesn't have to happen, as long as you stay educated and use a little common sense.
