Can anyone tell me if plumeria's are toxic to animals?

RE: plumeria

I would say yes although there are some insects that feed on other plants in the same family.
If you have a dog or cat that might be inclined to eat your houseplants, make sure to have plenty of 'catgrass' or sprouted wheatgrass on hand, especially if they can't go outdoors.

RE: plumeria

From what I've been able to find about plumerias it is the white milky sap which is poisonous. I found this about them: Just a word of caution - "Plumeria" belongs to the Dogbane Family (Apocynaceae) which contains other poisonous plants such as Nerium or Oleander. The fleshy branches of frangipani ooze a poisonous milky sap when cut and the leaves of oleanders are highly poisonous.

So I would keep my pets away from them if they tend to chew on plants.
