A Good Resource to Keep Your Pets Safe from Poisonous Plants

By FieldHaven Feline Center

As we enter into the holiday season between October to December, we should keep in mind the dangers holiday décor can pose to our pets. In addition to common decorations like string, tinsel and beads that should be kept away from our kitties, consider what live plants are being brought into your home. Plants like poinsettias, holly and mistletoe are toxic to cats and dogs. Remember this when giving hostess gifts, too.

Our friends at Rover.com (yes, dogs are our friends!) have developed a database that’s a wonderful year-round resource for pet owners to check on the compatibility of plants and pets in your home. Keep this link handy and consult it prior to making any plant purchases.
