Springtime is here, which means going outside more often and playing with our dogs, either on walks to the park or in our own backyards. But with spring comes more hazards for your pup. Here are a few tips for keeping your pet safe this spring! One thing you can do for your pets is to make sure your garden doesn’t accidentally have plants that could harm them!

Many popular springtime plants, such as rhododendrons and daffodils, are toxic to pets and can even prove to be fatal.
