Plants add beauty to our indoor environment by adding color, texture, and a touch of nature. While it has been proven, that having plants in an indoor environment can be calming for humans it can also be fatal for our furry family members.
Both dogs and cats have a tendency to chew. This chewing habit in nature provides much need fiber in the animal’s diet. Certain dog breeds are bred for their natural habit of picking things up and caring them in their mouth. This habit is reinforced through the game of “fetch.” When it comes to this habit, dogs do not know what is safe to put their mouth on and what is not.
Cats, on the other hand, not only chew but they also scratch and rub. Scratching is done to sharpen their claws. The rubbing habit is a way of taking ownership of something with scent. While on the surface these habits may look benign, they can cause accidental poisoning.
