The Best Pet Safe Plants

Plants make look pretty but some of them may cause you or your pets some irritation if they are eaten. Do not blame the plants, they are just trying to survive just like you and me. They taste horrible and cause irritation so you do not go back and eat them again as a regular meal.

Poison Prevention for indoor plants

Here are a few tips to keep your animals away from your plants. 

- Smells can keep pets away from plants. You can buy sprays that act as a deterrent towards your animals. Some natural deterrents can be garlic and rosemary.

- Use a pot with legs to keep the plant away from your pet. You can also keep it on a higher surface unless you have a climbing cat.

- If your pet loves to dig cover the plants soil in stones to prevent the temptation of digging mud.

- Finally, buy a pet safe plant!
