Keep your pet safe while in your landscape. Pets should be considered when planning and tending your yard and garden (and even houseplants) since some plants are toxic to dogs, cats, and other pets. Organic methods also keep your pets safer. Pesticides on lawn, systemics on roses, and slug and snail baits are just some of the pesticide dangers in the landscape.
Avocados – poisonous to most species but especially birds. Damages the heart muscle.
Garlic and onions – poisonous to dogs and cats. Damage to red blood cells.
Macadamia nuts – poisonous to dogs. Muscle and nervous system problems.
Chocolate – poisonous to most species but mostly dogs. Nervous system and heart.
Pet Safe Foods – for dogs and cats:

Pumpkin (one of my cats loves cooked pumpkin)
