Pet-Friendly Flowers You Should Know

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

As a pet owner, you know that your dog or cat will chew on anything they can get their hands – or teeth – on. And eventually, your pet will inevitably have a taste of your plants or flowers. While all of these colourful blooms are lovely, some of them can be particularly harmful to our pets. The last thing we want is for our pets to become ill from flowers or plants that are poisonous to them.

Not all flowers and plants must be avoided, but you should be cautious so that you can move the poisonous ones out of the way of a curious pet. Every pet owner should be aware of which flowers are poisonous to pets and which plants and flowers are safe to have in their home. Outlined below are some of the plants to keep away and the ones you can have around your pets.

5 Pet-Friendly Flowers

  • SUNFLOWERS

These bright flowers are safe to have around pets. Your cat might become intrigued by the colourful and alluring flowers and be tempted to play with or eat the petals. The flowers won’t pose any serious health risks to your curious dog or cat, but they might give them a slight stomach ache. Either, it’s best to discourage your pet’s habit of eating flowers.

  • ORCHIDS

These lovely flowers are exquisite and safe to keep around pets. Most orchid blooms have three silky petals and are tall with a tube-like shape. The majority of the flowers on this list may upset your pet’s stomach if they happen to eat them, but you won’t need to run to the doctor because they are non-toxic. In either case, it’s best to store them somewhere other than where your pet is to stop them from eating the flowers and let the flowers grow. 

  • GERBERA DAISIES

Pet owners can enjoy the vibrant gerbera daisies all day without feeling guilty about having “pet poison” around. Gerbera daisies, which bloom in the brightest colours of pink, red, yellow, and white, are extremely popular and stand for joy and purity. However, it would be wise if you kept your gerbera daisies out of reach of your pet because flowers are most likely not a typical component of its normal diet.

  • ROSES

Roses are a pet-friendly and safe flower choice. They not only have a nice scent, but you won’t need to worry about your pet becoming sick from chewing or ingesting any dropped petals. However, it is advised to remove any thorns from your rose bouquets or to choose a taller vase to conceal them.

  • ZINNIA

In addition to being attractive and prolific, zinnias are confirmed to be safe for your pets. These blooms, which resemble daisies and dahlias in appearance, are incredibly prolific bloomers, especially in the summer. 

5 Flowers That Are Toxic To Pets

  • LILIES

Lilies are stunning and a favourite spring flower to grow indoors and in gardens, however, the majority of lilies are hazardous to pets. Lilies have a poisonous effect on cats in particular and even small amounts can be lethal.

  • CHRYSANTHEMUM

Chrysanthemum contains chemicals called lactones and pyrethrins as well as other possible irritants that might irritate the neurological system and the gastrointestinal tract. Vomiting, diarrhoea, excessive salivation, and lack of coordination are symptoms of poisoning.

  • RHODODENDRONS

They cause symptoms like vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, and refusal to eat. Changes in heart rate and blood pressure, weakness, tremors, seizures, paralysis, blurred vision, and difficulty breathing are other indicators of rhododendron poisoning. Although all parts of the plant, including the trimmings, are poisonous, the leaves are the most dangerous.

  • OLEANDER

Oleander is a well-known plant in the Apocynaceae family that contains dangerous cardiac glycosides that, when swallowed, can result in drooling, vomiting, diarrhoea, colic, depression, and even death.

  • TULIPS, DAFFODILS & HYACINTHS

As a pet owner, you should be concerned about the bulbs of these common spring blooms in the ground. Ingestion of the bulb or any other part of the plant may result in vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, irregular heart rhythms, and respiratory depression in addition to vomiting.

It’s important to keep your dog or cat away from plants if they like to eat them, and you should also take care not to leave trimmings in your yard where they can get to them.
