10 Plants to Keep Away from Pets


Animals tend to gravitate toward plants. Whether they are trying to play with them or simply destroy them, plants are frequently the focus of attention when you have a pet in the house. Unfortunately, some common plants can be deadly to your cat or dog. You should avoid keeping these toxic plants in the house if you have a pet.

1. Aloe vera

You might be surprised to see aloe vera on this list, but it’s one of the most dangerous plants for almost all pets. Nowadays many families keep this succulent around the home to treat burns naturally. It’s also an excellent air purifier. Unfortunately, if your cat or dog bites into the thick leaves, problems could ensue. Ingestion of aloe vera can cause vomiting and diarrhea, shaking, lack of appetite and depression in your pet. So make sure you keep it away from your pet.
