Family Matters: Plants & Pets


It’s the most wonderful time of year to be outside!

Birds are singing, flowers are growing, gardens are planted, and pets are frolicking through thick grass.

However, not all plants are pet-friendly, including things you may be growing in your garden for you to eat!

Some plants, fertilizers and insecticides are highly toxic to your pet if ingested.

Call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Phone Number, (888) 426-4435, immediately if you suspect your pet has ingested something poisonous.
