Health Benefits of Nature and Dog-Friendly Plants

Nature has been proven to provide measurable health benefits. Studies show that exposure to nature or even city “greenspaces” had beneficial health effects, including a decrease in cortisol levels, heart rate, and cholesterol. Other studies showed the incidence of stroke, hypertension, asthma, and heart disease decreased. Having a bit of nature in and around your home can provide a link to nature and its benefits. However, not all plants are safe for all members of our home, especially those of the K9 variety. With that in mind, here is a list of some dog-friendly plants:
