When considering buying a bouquet from a florist, remember that none of the flowers are safe for humans or pets to consume. Even seemingly safe options like kale, roses, or sunflowers, they can still contain pesticides and fungicides that can be dangerous if ingested. To ensure safety, keep flowers out of your pet's reach. If ingestion occurs, contact a vet for guidance. When gifting a bouquet, choose pet-safe flowers or advise the recipient to keep it away from their pet's access.
