Poisonious Plants in Washington State

The other day my lovely boxer mix "devil dog" Ruby decided to eat the berries off a snow berry bush in my back yard. I panicked and call the Washington State Poison Control only to find they no longer give free advice on animals only people. Since my call to them I have heard there is a chance the regular Poison Control Hotline may have be losing some of its funding due to budget cuts here in Washington. Aleta at Oak Bay Hospital was very helpful with giving me advice on what to do with Ruby. I also did a quick Google search and found a very specific pdf document on Poison Plants of Washington State and have added that link here for anyone to look at. This list is just a reference, for both humans and animals but should never replace calling a physician or veterinary office for specific information.
