Frangipanis are widespread plants and mildly poisonous, ingesting leaves or flowers can irritate the digestive tract. It’s the sap that’s irritating and a few animals can develop rashes when they get it on their lips and from breaking a branch or leaves. When animals ingest whole flowers they can develop excessive salivation, vomiting, diarrhea. Take your animal to the veterinarian to receive prompt supportive treatment and avoid any complications.
