Of the 3000 species of plant known to produce cyanogenic glucosides the most common ones that pets come into contact with are pitted fruits such as peaches, cherries and almonds; pome fruits such as apples and pears; legumes such as clover and vetch; elderberry; and a variety of grasses.
Luckily plant related cyanide poisoning in pets is extremely uncommon as the bitter taste of cyanogenic glucosides tend to limit the amount of plant that the pet can tolerate consuming.
This removes the glucose molecule leaving cyanohydrin; a chemically unstable amino acid derived compound that will further degrade spontaneously or by the action of an hydroxynitrile lyase to produce toxic hydrogen cyanide gas (HCN).
Prevent Further Ingestion of the Plant, Seek Veterinary Treatment, administer cyanide antidotes as soon as possible, without delay for tests to confirm red blood cell (RBC) cyanide levels.

macrophylla can be blue, red, pink, or purple with the color depending on the pH of the soil; acidic soils (low pH) produce blue flowers, neutral soils produce pale cream flowers, and alkaline soils (high pH) results in pink or purple.
