Pet owners typically are quite aware of the things inside your home that could be hazardous to your pet, including what to not feed your dog or that lillies are dangerous for cats.  But, another thing to consider is the plants that are outside that your pet could get into.

There are lots of flowers and various plants out there that we all want to explore right now with spring in full bloom.  Unfortunately, some of these plants can be hazardous, even deadly, to our furry friends.
