Our pets are also fascinated by the wild beauty of nature, so they too enjoy spending time out in their own yard or garden. However, taking care of a garden for your pet is challenging. It’s not just about planning the path to plant new flowers each season. There are many other important factors that you need to consider before starting your own personal flower garden for your pet.

Here, we explain those factors and offer some helpful tips on what you should do now to ensure that your garden will thrive and be enjoyed by your pet now and in the years to come.


What chemicals to use for proper care of a pet’s garden?

Chemicals that you should not use in the garden if you have a dog: 

First, let’s talk about chemicals to avoid using if you are a pet owner. There are a lot of extremely toxic chemicals, not only to our furry friends but to us too. These are the chemicals that you should avoid: 

Disulfoton pesticides

Disulfoton is a class of pesticides that are extremely harmful. They are not available on the market anymore, but you can still find them in different supplies. Make sure you read the labels of the products, before using them in your garden to prevent your pets from consuming the toxic material. These chemicals can cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, and in some cases death. If you think that your pet may have consumed this chemical, please call your vet, or go to the nearest pet clinic.

Lures with metaldehyde

Snail baits can contain metaldehyde, which can be dangerous to your pet. Metaldehyde can have serious effects on your dog’s health, and it can even cause death. Use lures with iron phosphate, which is the less toxic version of this chemical.


If you decide to use herbicides, do it the right way. Herbicides are not as toxic as the last two chemicals but still can cause trouble to your pets. Make sure that  after you’ve applied it you’ve waited to dry. When this chemical is dry, it is considered not dangerous to pets.

Fertilizer the lawn

We know that to keep grass beautiful and strong, we need to fertilize it. We can use seaweed fertilizer, fish emulsion, or compost fertilizer. Don’t use too much fish emulsion, because it can damage your plants. Don’t let your pets play in the garden immediately! Wait from 24 to 48 hours to make sure that the fertilizer is doing its job, and it’s not toxic anymore.
