Here’s how to make your garden a safer place for your pets.
Research Pet-Safe Plants
Harmful, toxic plants can cause drooling and heart or kidney failure. Check with your local veterinarian or garden store for a list of poisonous plants.
Fence Off Vegetables
Edible plants, like garlic, chives and onions, can be harmful to animals. Consider a hanging planter to keep your fur babies away from danger.
Avoid Cocoa Bean Mulch
Cocoa bean mulch is dangerous for animals to ingest, and many will be attracted to its sweet smell. Look for an all natural, pet-safe option at your local garden store.
Keep Pets Away From Fertilizers
When you fertilize your yard, keep your pet inside and follow precise watering and care instructions. When it is time to let them out, make sure the treated area is safe.
Avoid Rodent Poison
Find natural remedies for dealing with rodents and steer clear of any poisonous bates.
