Why pet friendly flowers are important for pet owners

3 min read

Sending flowers is such a wonderfully thoughtful way to show your appreciation to someone you care about! But, if your recipient happens to be a pet owner, it's essential to keep their furry friend's health and safety in mind when picking the perfect bouquet. Don't worry, though! Our handy guide is here to assist you in identifying pet-friendly flowers and avoiding any potential hazards. So, you can spread joy and love without any worries!

When it comes to plants and flowers, it's crucial to be mindful of our furry friends. Some varieties can make our pets sick or, even worse, be poisonous to them. So, whether you're buying flowers or planning your garden for the season, it's best to avoid certain ones to keep our beloved pets safe and happy. It's worth noting that while some plants may not be universally toxic, certain pets might have allergies to them, so it's always better to err on the side of caution.


There's quite a variety of flowers and plants that can make our dogs feel unwell if they happen to munch on them. It's mainly because of certain chemicals they contain, making them toxic for our dogs. So, if you ever suspect that your dog might have nibbled on any of these flowers, rush them to the vet immediately.
