Are your plants pet-friendly?
At Wild Interiors®, we’re pet lovers and understand you are too. We care about the health and safety of your furry friends, so we have developed a guide to pet-friendly plants for your reference. When browsing our site, look for the paw print icon 🐾 to indicate pet-friendly plant options. If you think your pet has ingested a toxic plant, please contact the vet immediately.
Also, note that even non-toxic plants might cause some tummy trouble. Keeping fresh catnip or oat grass growing in your home may cut down on kitties who want to get to know your plants. Check out the list below to discover pet-safe plants from Wild Interiors®.
Our pet-friendly plant offerings include:
Baby Rubber Plant
Fluffy Ruffles Fern
Rabbit's Foot Fern
Exercise caution when considering the following plants:
Sansevieria or "Snake Plant"*
*Snake Plant is mildly toxic to pets, due to saponins. It has a very bitter taste that deters most animals from attempting to eat it, and a lethal amount is not likely to be consumed. Use your best judgment and knowledge of your pets before deciding to bring home a Snake Plant. Read more. The ASPCA rates this plant as toxic to dogs, cats, and horses.
**Croton is mildly toxic to pets and people if digested, but its bitter taste keeps most pets from eating it. In large doses, eating Croton plants can be fatal. Use your best judgment and knowledge of your pets before deciding to bring home a Croton. Read more.
Phlebodium Blue Star Fern***
***The ASPCA has not evaluated the Phlebodium Blue Star Fern, though other sources indicate it to be pet-friendly.
Please keep the following plants away from pets, as they can be toxic even in small doses:
Arboricola or “Umbrella Tree”
Dieffenbachia or “Dumbcane”
Fiddle Leaf Fig
When in doubt, check the ASPCA’s Toxic and Non-Toxic Plant List for up to date information and resources. ImproveNet also has a resource library for other pets as well, including reptiles and birds. When in doubt, look it up!
