The Ultimate Guide to Pet-Safe Plants

As pet owners, it can feel like we’re constantly second-guessing ourselves. 

Is it OK my dog sleeps like that? 

Did I do something to make my dog whine? 

Can my dog eat that? 

Can they lick that leaf?

As March marks Pet Poison Prevention Month, there’s no better time than now to feel confident in what our pets ingest and how we handle the unfortunate — and oftentimes inevitable — moments when they get into mischief. 

Considering the ASPCA reportedly receives over 233,000 cases of potential animal poisonings per year, it’s tough to tackle every single risk and remedy in one sitting. So, on the brink of Spring, we’re honing in on the floras and foliages that are and aren’t hazardous to our pets. After all, plants account for 6% of all poison incidents reported to the ASPCA.

Whether you’re a gardener or have turned your home into a houseplant haven, it’s important as pet owners to be aware of plants that are toxic to our pets, in addition to the plants our pets can embrace. 

Honest Paws took out any guesswork, creating an ultimate guide to pet-safe plants that list 50 nontoxic plants to dogs, plus the combined mental health benefits of pet ownership and plant ownership. Pore over some of them in the infographic below and feel confident caring for your pets and plants hand in hand.
