How to Choose Pet-Friendly Plants

How to choose pet-friendly plants

You can check the website of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to see if plants in your home are toxic to cats. Their website provides a comprehensive plant database with information about the toxicity of plants to pets. You can enter the name of the plant to look up the relevant information to ensure the safety of your cat. Please note that if you are unable to find information about a specific plant, it is best to consult a veterinarian.

<strong>Conduct research</strong>

Before choosing a plant in your home, study their toxicity levels to ensure they are harmless to pets. Look for reliable sources of information, or consult a veterinarian for accurate information.


<strong>Placement location</strong>

Consider where the plants will be placed in your home. Keep poisonous plants out of the reach of pets, especially if you have curious or mischievous pets. Keep them out of the reach of pets, such as overhead or hanging baskets. If you have small pets or curious cats, consider setting up an enclosed glass garden. This way, your pet won’t have direct contact with the plant, reducing the risk of them nibbling on the leaves.


<strong>Consult a professional</strong>

If you are unsure about the safety of a particular plant, consult a veterinarian or plant specialist with specialized knowledge. They can provide professional advice based on your pet’s specific needs and behaviors.
