10 Pet-Friendly Houseplants

Posted by Lacey Hagler on Wednesday, August 5th, 2020 at 12:13pm.

Houseplants add a lushness and splash of organic color to any room. However, many species can be toxic to cats and dogs who may decide to munch on a leaf or two. Luckily, there are a few plants that can add beauty to your home without posing a threat to man’s best friend. These houseplants are safe for cats and dogs according to the ASPCA, but since the consumption of any plant material may cause vomiting and gastrointestinal upset, it's still best to keep all houseplants out of reach.
