Toxic Houseplants for Dogs and Cats


25 July 2020



Houseplants are a beautiful way to liven up a home, however, they are quite intriguing to our four-legged friends. Many common houseplants can be toxic for cats and dogs if ingested unbeknownst to many pet parents. Be cautious when purchasing houseplants, especially when you have a puppy or kitten at home.

Are all houseplants equally as toxic for dogs and cats?

No, the severity of toxicity can range anywhere from very highly poisonous to mildly poisonous. If you do own one of these plants and aren’t willing to rehome it, make sure it is far out of reach from your cat or dog. Keep in mind that a small nibble on a toxic leaf can result in a trip to the emergency room depending on different factors including your pet’s size and breed. There’s no such thing as being too safe when it comes to our pets! Let’s take a look at a few of the most common toxic houseplants for dogs and cats.
