For most of us, cats, dogs, and other furry friends are more than pets – they’re certified members of the family. We, thus, should keep their best interests and needs in mind in everything that we do – even choosing flowers around Melbourne.
Flowers around the home are an excellent way to brighten up the rooms and fill them with a fresh scent, but it’s essential that they don’t endanger your pets’ wellbeing.
Certain flowers and plants are dangerous to your pets. For instance, lilies are toxic to cats, while azaleas can make your pooch sick if they happen to chew on them.
We’re here to help, with a selection of beautiful flowers that are already certified as pet-safe.
