I was looking and didnt see a thread about this (but if there is one please just direct me to it) I love to have plants/ flowers in my house but i have 2 dogs and a cat. I know there are some that are dangerous, can someone please give me a list of what to avoid thank you

I guess the first question to ask is are your pets known to eat plants and/or dig them up? We have plants all over the house and Jesse is only interested in one -- and it's been moved outside because Mommy was tired of shampooing every day. :frustrated: So if you can give some more info, I can give you some ideas and so can others. :)

some houseplants are not only poisonous to pets, but can be harmful to humans as well. i.e. dumb cane. Here's a link from the Humane Society of a large listing of common house plants:
