Plants and Pet Saftey


Cats and dogs are the most common pets that people have at home. Plants are also all around us. I would like to have a dog of my own. I have already asked my parents for a dog, but they said no, because our neighbors don’t approve of a dog barking constantly. But if I did have a pet, I know that I would always want it to be safe. So this is the reason I am writing about pet safety. Maybe my parents will see how responsible I am. 





This is Adrian's cat, Luna. 

This is a picture of Isael's dog Bella.
So if you have a pet that you really love, and want to make sure that it doesn’t touch or eat a plant that is poisonous to it, well then you should read this small list of some toxic plants....


Dogs and Cats


Even though Aloe vera can help heal burns, it will cause your dog to vomit, to have diarrhea, and it’s urine will change color.


                                                                                                        This an Aloe vera plant in a pot at our school. It is about to flower, and it will attract humming birds.

Begonias are usually in gardens, and will cause harm to pets. It will cause oral irritation, intense burning and irritation of mouth, tongue and lips, a lot of drooling, vomiting, and difficulty in swallowing.
