Gardening with Pets in Mind (Online)

Many backyard plants are listed as “toxic” to cats and dogs, but toxicity can range from simple stomach irritation to life-threatening illness. Learn how to identify the most common garden plant offenders and which ones are cause for real concern in this talk. Basic at-home care will be discussed, as well as when, and how, to seek appropriate emergency veterinary care for a potential toxic plant exposure. Dr. Danielle Downs also shares her practical approach to native garden design with pets in mind.

This program takes place online Tuesday, October 4, 2022
