If you are a plant-parent and a pet-parent, you'd need to find ways to keep both in the household safe and flourishing. Here, we share some of our best tips for minimizing potential risks between pets and plants.

Plants and flowers are amazing. They brighten-up our homes and can even keep the air fresh inside! But our lovely fur babies can be allergic to them or even worse, some of these plants can be highly toxic to them.

According to ASPCA let's all pay attention to some highly toxic plats for cats and dogs, as responsible pet parents and carers:

1.Lilies
2.Sago Palms
3.Lantana
4.Chinese Evergreen
5.Ivy
6.Tulips/Narcissus
7.Azaleas
8.Cyclamen
9.Daffodils
10.Aloe Vera (While processed Aloe Vera EXTRACT is safe and beneficial to pets, other forms of the Aloe plant need to be handled carefully as elements of it can be poisonous).

The list doesn't stop there of course, it's long. These are simply the most common and everyday plants or flowers we may keep in our homes. Here's a full list of toxic plants and flowers, alphabetically and with pictures, to reference to.

Pay close attention to any signs of pet poisoning such as, diarrhea, vomiting, drooling etc. Contact your vet ASAP if you believe your cat or dog showing symptoms of poisoning.

So which plants are safe?


Well, quite many actually. Here's a few at the top of our head, that we love and see our friends include in their homes, as well as customers who have asked us about them:

1.Catnip
2.Spider Plant
3.Chamomile
4.Bamboo Palm
5.Kimberly Queen Fern
6.Donkey's Tail
7.Bromeliad

And any that is not included in the list of plants that are poisonous for pets, that we shared earlier.

Should you have any questions or doubts, you can ask your vet, consult the ASPCA experts or send us a message in any of our social channels or customer support.
