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.

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.
