10 Plants to Keep Away from Pets


10. Tomatoes

The actual fruit from a tomato plant is not usually a problem for animals, but the plant itself can be dangerous. If your cat or dog takes a playful bite of a tomato plant, you can expect plenty of drooling, diarrhea, lethargy, confusion and stomach problems. Severe cases may even cause the pet’s heart rate to slow down. Upside down tomato planters might be a good alternative to the potted plants.

Not all houseplants are dangerous to pets, but if you want to keep your furry friends safe, you should avoid the ones on this list. Keep in mind that not all animals will go after plants, but if they do, it’s best to have non-toxic options around.
