Keeping Your Pet Safe in the Garden

Last week, Tim Hill of Season's Art Landscape Design of Orwigsburg presented an informative seminar on keeping your pets safe during gardening season. He covered a variety of plants that are toxic to animals. Some are deadly. Every pet owner should know how to protect their pet from accidental poisoning. It's not only the plantsĀ either. Something as mundane as cocoa mulch can be deadly to the dog that eats it. Products commonly used in the garden and on lawns can also be toxic, Pet owners have a good resource on line at Pet Poison Control HotlineĀ ( http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/pet-owners/seasons/summer-pet-poisons/.) If considering using a product or adding some new plantings, it would be wise to consider your pet's health.
