House Plants To Avoid When You Have Pet Birds
You may have to get rid of some of your indoor plants which are deemed toxic to birds if you are planning to bring home a feathered friend. Toxic substances are present in the stems, leaves, and/or roots of these plants, and pet birds may have access to them especially they are allowed to spend time outside their enclosures.
Some bird owners are able to train their pets to stay away from certain indoor plants. However, it is best to take a proactive approach and just avoid placing indoor plants that are potentially toxic in rooms or parts of the house where your pet bird can stay in.
Plants are usually needed to create an ideal environment for pet birds that mimics their natural habitat. There are certain houseplants that you can use indoors which are safe for pet birds. These include the rubber plant (Ficus sp), Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum), and Zebra plant (Aphelandra squarrosa).
Consult a vet with experience in treating birds if you have any concerns regarding your pet bird’s health. Click here for more information.
