Houseplants can provide natural beauty to any Fairhaven rental home. However, if you own pets, it’s really important to have houseplants that are not poisonous. This may surprise you, but some of the most common kinds of houseplants can be toxic for your pets.
And if you think that your pet would never even try to eat a plant, that’s not the only way a toxic houseplant can cause harm. Even rubbing against some plants can spur skin irritation, digestion problems, and more to your furry friend. Here are the top pet-safe houseplants to keep your pet safe while enjoying the pros trendy houseplants have to offer for your rental home.
