Keep your pets safe in the garden this summer!

Spring has officially sprung, and we are all eager to be able to spend some time outdoors – especially gardeners (and their pets!). But, before you get out and start tending to your garden this year, consider these helpful tips to keeping your furry friends safe outdoors during the springtime.
Make sure you plan before you plant! As pretty as they can be, there are quite a few plants that are dangerous, if not lethal, to dogs. Here are some common toxic springtime plants to be weary of before heading to the store.

  • Lilies
  • Tulips, Hyacinths and Iris
  • Daffodils
  • Certain fertilizers

If you plan on bringing a toxic plant into your home or garden, make sure that they are fenced in or blocked off to keep any snooping noses or paws away!
