Weed Identification for Toxicity

Asked March 29, 2017, 3:34 PM EDT

Can you tell me what type of weeds these are and if they have a toxicity level for grazing animals? We are located in Germantown.

The weed on the left looks like chickweed http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/common-chickweed
The weed on the right looks like henbit http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/henbit

We do not have information on whether or not the weeds are poisonous to grazing animals. You can look at the attached links on poisonous plants, contact your vet, and the MD Poison Ctr http://www.mdpoison.com/aboutus/contacts.html
