If you’re thinking about planting a garden or just planting a few flowers to make your home look nice, you need to consider which flowers are safe for your furry family members. There are many flowering plants that are toxic or cause health issues for pets (See my list of flowers toxic to pets here). It would be best to keep your pets from eating any plants in general, as you never know what your pets will react to. But sometimes dogs will be dogs and insist on eating things they are not supposed to. So it’s best to make sure that the flowers in and around your home are the safest types for your pets. That’s why I’ve complied this list of the safest flowers to have around your pets.
