Toxic Houseplants for Dogs and Cats

July 25, 2019

Houseplants are a beautiful way to liven up a home, however, they are quite intriguing to our four-legged friends. Be cautious when purchasing houseplants, especially when you have a puppy or kitten at home. The severity of toxicity can range anywhere from very highly poisonous to mildly poisonous. If you do own one of these plants and aren’t willing to rehome it, make sure it is far out of reach from your cat or dog. A small nibble on a leaf can result in a trip to the emergency room. There’s no such thing as being too safe when it comes to our pets!
