Do you have something dangerous growing in or around your home? Many plants are dangerous to cats and dogs–causing anything from vomiting and diarrhea to death. It’s impossible to keep an eye on your pets 24/7, so your best effort to protect them from ingesting toxic plants is to prohibit them from your home, inside and out.

Aloe
Amaryllis
Apple seeds
