Are Easter lilies poisonous to cats? | Dr. Justine Lee, veterinary expert

If your cat just got into lilies, get to a veterinarian immediately! Dr. Justine Lee, emergency critical care veterinary specialist and toxicologist, discusses the poisoning dangers of lilies to cats. Plants from the Lilium or Hemerocallis spp. can result in severe acute kidney injury (AKI) when ingested by cats. As little as 2-3 leaves, flowers, pollen – even the water in the vase – can result in poisoning! When in doubt, contact your veterinarian, emergency veterinarian, or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435 for life-saving advice to keep your cat(s) healthy!
