Pets and Plants

“Hey Shelmerdine! What plants are safe for my to be around?”

One of the most frequently asked questions that we get is “what plants are safe for my pets?”

While we don’t recommend that your dog or cats make a meal out of any of these varieties, choosing pet-safe plants is a smart precaution to take.  Many plants contain naturally-occurring toxins that can cause allergic reactions or irritation to pets. The plants listed here will not harm your cat or dog, but may still cause adverse reactions if your pet is allergic to the plant.
