If you love both plants and pooches, then you know how much joy they each can bring into our lives. Sometimes, though, certain plants just don’t mix well with pups.

It’s vital to know what common garden blooms aren’t safe for our furry friends to protect the health of our pets.

So, here are 10 common indoor and outdoor plants that may look unassuming but actually can be harmful to dogs.

Sago Palm

First up is the Sago Palm– an exotic beauty that’s a stunner with its thick, shaggy trunk and long, feathery fronds. The only problem is that it’s super toxic to dogs.

Even a small nibble can lead to big problems like vomiting, diarrhea, and liver failure. So, be sure to keep these out of paw’s reach, or maybe go for a faux version instead.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera, our go-to for sunburns, has thick, fleshy leaves filled with soothing gel. However, for our four-legged friends, it’s a no-go.

If your dog gets a taste, you can expect some upset tummy and diarrhea. That’s why it’s best to keep these healing wonders on high shelves or in a pooch-free zone.
