A woman has issued a warning to pet owners after a popular garden plant she bought on Groupon killed one of her dogs and left the second fighting for life.

..

Gill McClung, 47, paid 29.99 for two king sago palms without realising they contain a toxin that is highly poisonous to animals.

..

The only warning on the packaging said 'not for consumption, for decorative use' but according to Mrs McClung, the plant gave off an aroma that attracted both her dogs Harley, a three year-old border collier and Kruz, a husky aged six, who pulled it out and started eating it.

..

Both dogs fell seriously ill and Harley spent 10 days in pain before dying from liver failure, while Kruz survived after treatment.

..

Mrs McClung, a foster carer from Stroud, Gloucestershire, said: "I'm absolutely heartbroken, it's a massive loss to me.

..

You just don't expect them to be poisonous.

..

"The labelling on the packaging said 'not for consumption, for decorative use' but it didn't say anything about being toxic and the plant is not on the poisonous plants for dogs list.
