Keeping Your Garden and Home Safe for Your Pets
Springtime is the season when those of us who enjoy gardening and landscaping are once again busy mowing lawns, visiting nurseries to buy those beautiful plants and in general decorating and getting our green thumbs working. We are relieved that winter is a thing of the past, and we passionately spend time in our gardens, we enthusiastically plant shrubs and flower beds.

Even though some plants may be quite attractive, at the same time, we need to exercise caution and be mindful of the types of plants that we bring into our homes, no matter how appealing, or how beautiful they may be. Many plants appear benign but some plants can be extremely toxic and hazardous to our dogs and cats.
