I got an urgent email from my pals Angel Mica the Wonderpup and Mirra aka The Purple Girls of Oregon. It seems as though there is a pretty house plant being sold in stores all across the country which is extemely toxic, if ingested, to both furs and furless. TPGOO have asked their furiends to help bark out and I, in return, am asking all my pals to do the same. The following is inFURmation I found in Plus Forums Informational thread SAGO PALM IS A POISONous PLANT!.....

PLEASE Cross post:

Greetings from the Burnt Hills Veterinary Hospital.

Our goal is to make our clients the most educated pet owners in the community.
Recently the home improvement stores have stocked their shelves with a plant called "Sago Palm". This is a decorative houseplant that you may be tempted to purchase.

If your pets ingest ANY part of this plant it will cause liver failure. Even with aggressive veterinary treatment 70% + of these pets will die. We implore you to keep your household free of this plant. We are devastated when we are unable to help your pets.

Go to our website and get a look at this plant.

If that isn't enough to convince you to help spread the woof, check out another Plus thread, started by pretty, little Tallulah Belle who nearly died after consuming some of a Sago Palm! Thank God and Dog, she survived, but many haven't.... and sadly, won't. :(

In addition to the deadly SAGO PALM, my pawsome pal Mica, gone to The Bridge too soon due to IMHA (Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia) , has been on a mission to help find a cure fur the deadly disease.

I am BOL to everywoof to visit Mica's Dogster page, READ HER BIO, and her Diary, and become aware of IMHA and IMTP (Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia). I hope everywoof can make even a small efFURt to support Mica's cause to help find a cure. Pawlease, everywoof, you could be the next fur who is affected by these deadly diseases. I hope you care and can try to help. I did, and it's time fur me to help a little bit more! I start by BOL in this Diary entry and continue by digging Mom's checkbook out fur her and asking her to use it. Every woof and every dollar gets us one step closer to a cure!

Thanks fur taking the time to hear me bol and fur taking the time - and making the space- to bol yourselves.

All paws united fur Power of the Paw! It can work miracles!

Fluffy hugs & Pommie kisses, Uncle Coco ♥
