Common Plants That Can Be Deadly to Your Pet
As spring enters full bloom it is more important than ever to go over the plants that are in and around your home or in your yard. Making sure the plants you keep are safe for your cat or dog is one of the best ways to ensure that a fun day of play doesn’t turn into a tragic nightmare.
Jet Pet Resort has put this list together to help you stay informed. We know the owners of our guests are the most responsible pet owners out there and we know that you will do whatever it takes to ensure that your pet is out of harm’s way. With just a bit of knowledge and thoughtful planning, you can ensure that the time your pet spends playing and exploring always ends happily.
There are quite a few common (and some not so common) plants that can be extremely toxic to your pet causing them to become violently ill and can even cause death. If you have any of the plants listed below, make sure that they are in places where your pets can’t reach them or consider getting rid of them altogether. Remember, it’s always better to be safe rather than sorry, and being a responsible pet owner means being an informed pet owner.

Because there are so many plants that are toxic and can harm your cat or dog, Jet Pet Resort only has man-made or faux plants in pet common areas such as our courtyard, lane-ways and outside areas and only has ‘safe for pets’ natural plants and flowers in our reception area. We take the safety and well-being of your pet (and their curiosity!) very seriously. It’s just another little way that Jet Pet Resort goes the extra mile to make sure that your pet’s stay with us is a worry-free one!
