Looks like you don't have to ban poinsettias from your home this holiday season. Even if Fido or Mittens gets into them, they're not deadly, just "sickly". See what the Pet Poison Helpline says below.

Poinsettias and Cats, Dogs - Poinsettias Poisonous to Cats

Poinsettias are only mildly toxic to cats and dogs. Medical treatment is rarely necessary, but if you think your pet has been poisoned, call your vet or 800-213-6680.

Top Ten Holiday Decorations to Avoid | petMD

Twinkling lights, sparkly tinsel, brightly colored garland, and delicate ornaments – what’s not to love about holiday decorations? The dangers they can pose for your beloved pet, that’s what.
