In this blog we'll go over some houseplants and their compatibility with your pets at home! Pet owners need to be extra vigilant when it comes to their plants as not all plants are safe for their pets. We'll cover our favorite plants for you to purchase for your home!
Echeveria are extremely popular succulents. When people picture a succulent plant, Echeveria usually comes to mind! These plants are not only easy to maintain but also pet-friendly
2. Zebra Plant
Zebra Plants not only look cool but are safe for your pets! If your pet accidentally chews on a leaf, don't worry as it's non-toxic. Zebra Plants are also extremely drought tolerable, making them very easy to take care of!
I know what you're thinking, a cactus? Surprisingly the only thing that's harmful about the Bunny Ear Cactus are the pricks that are irritating to the touch. The pricks can be removed with tweezers and if accidentally ingested, the plant is non-toxic for pets! We definitely recommend keeping this out of reach from pets though.
Tiger Jaw might sound frightening but is surprisingly safe for pets! This succulent is unique in it's look, giving your arrangement a nice variation when it comes to look. They're also super easy to take care of, like most succulents.
It won't taste like Bananas but if accidentally ingested, your pet is safe. Unlike it's cousin, the String of Pearls which is mildly toxic, the ASPCA has not listed the String of Bananas as toxic. Your pet might love to play with these, so we recommend keeping them out of reach for sanity purposes.
What to do if my pet ingests a plant?
Although the plants listed are safe for pets. If your pet ingests a plant that is toxic, please contact a local poison control center immediately or visit your local vet. Some plants are very toxic to pets while others can just cause nausea or vomiting. Don't take any chances when it comes to your pets! Be sure to keep toxic plants out of reach and make sure you research a plant's safety before making a purchase.
