Adding some greeenery to your home doesn’t have to be hazardous to your pets. In fact, there are plenty of plants that are pet-safe and pretty, but it’s important to know which ones are not first!

If you have pets in your home, then you know that finding Pet Safe Houseplants is a must. Curious cats and hungry dogs love to lick anything in their path. You may not know that they are especially attracted to great-smelling plants.

Today we are sharing a number of excellent infographics that show you what is pet-safe and those you should avoid. We’re sure that there will be a few on the list that will surprise you.

As you can see from the infographic above, houseplants account for 15% of pet poisoning incidents every year. That’s quite a large number of pet owners who don’t know the potential harm.

The key to keeping your home pet-safe is to ensure toxic plants are out of reach of little paws. In the first instance, however, you need to learn which plants pass the test and which do not.

via Humane Society

According to the Humane Society, if your pet has eaten or licked one of these plants, the following steps should be taken.

First, remove the plant from your pet’s mouth if any is left inside.

Next, gently rinse out their mouths with water using a cloth so they don’t swallow too much.

Try to identify the plant your pet encountered so that you can watch out for specific symptoms (see the chart above).

If you notice any symptoms developing, call your vet or local animal care hospital as quickly as possible.

Another helpful infographic is this one from Aventix Animal Care. It shows the harmful plants and those that are perfectly safe around pets.

If you’re thinking of keeping any of the harmful plants, be sure that they are positioned out of reach of your pet. A Golden Retriever might not be able to jump on top of the fridge but a crafty cat might.
