There are many dogs that think of pets as children. However, unlike children who grow up and express themselves with their own will, they need constant protection.
Also, as many people protect their pets, they like to take care of the home, comfort the house, and customize it to their own personality. On the other hand, one of the most common elements to decorate a house is indoor plants.
Indoor plants are one of trendy ornaments, bringing life to life. Putting green plants in your home can relieve stress, purify the air, and produce aesthetic effects. All of these characteristics contribute to the enhancement of happiness and quality of life.
These indoor plants and flowers, which are small and harmless, can actually be harmful to pets. On the other hand, there are plants that are safe for pets. What plants can coexist with pets at home?
Puppies and cats chew grass in the garden for two reasons.
First, puppies are born omnivorous animals. In other words, dogs can eat both meat and vegetables, and they are needed as nutrients. Also, because dogs are naturally clean animals, they instinctively go around and eat everything around them. Wild dogs also eat fruits, berries and various vegetables to balance their nutrients.
Second, the dog instinctively eats grass when the stomach is dislocated. Dogs show signs of vomiting after eating grass. In other words, eating grass will solve the digestive system problem.
