Q.is coleus poisoning for pets?

i just heard from somebody that coleus is poisonous for dogs. Could you please tell me if this is true or not? And if you could give me the list of plants that are poisonous for pets, I would gladly appreciate that. Thank you very much.

While coleus does appear on the ASPCA list (which appears to include most plants on the face of the earth,) it does not appear on other lists. I think the probability of coleus being dangerous for your dog is pretty small, unless the dog has an allergy. Much like people who have nut allergies, although nuts aren't listed as "poisonous" to people. This article seems to me to contain the best realistic information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/plants-poisonous-to-dogs.htm
