Pet friendly plant choices
If you are like us you love your plants & your furry friends. We've compiled a list of indoor plants that are safe for your cat or dog so they can co-exist in your home happily.
Please keep in mind we are not vets, if in doubt about possible plant toxicity please consult your pet care provider. Dogs and cats are not evolved to eat large quantities of plant matter, and most plants will cause your pet to vomit if they eat them. They will sometimes eat grass as a natural emetic and even culinary herbs can cause mild gastrointestinal upset for animals.
If you have a cat or dog that likes to nibble plants, we would recommend putting them up out of reach to avoid temptation and access. This may be easy enough for dog owners, but trickier for those owners of acrobatic cats. We suggest also trying to train them out of the habit!
It is also worth keeping in mind that smaller animals are generally more adversely affected by unwanted plant consumption.
