Pets and Plants: Whether your pet is a cat, dog, chicken, or "other," your pet has the potential to be exposed to your plants indoors, outdoors, or both. There are many sources of information about plant toxicity but they can often conflict with each other. This presentation will help you to understand what "toxic" and "poisonous" mean to your pets and will provide you with a method to evaluate the pet, the plant, and as horticultural practices to assess how much risk is involved in each situation.
