Lily Toxicity

We would like to remind our clients that lilies are toxic to cats, even if just a small amount is ingested.  Some examples of lilies include the Easter lily, tiger lily, rubrum lily, and Japanese show lily, as is the common daylily.  The peace lily is not toxic, as it is not a true lily.  Symptoms include vomiting and drooling within a short time of ingestion and kidney failure within 5 days.  Tragically, lily ingestion is fatal to most cats that develop kidney failure.  Please be aware of the plants that your cat has access to and, as always, feel free to call us with any questions at (905) 727-3003.
