Harmful Household Plants To Pets

Our pets sometimes do things that we wish they didn’t like sit on the table, scratch the doors, or chew on electrical cords. They use their sense of smell, touch, and taste to learn about the world around them and it can sometimes get them in trouble, especially when it comes to plants.

Ingesting even small amounts of plans that are considered poisonous to our pets can be extremely harmful.
