Are Snake Plants safe for dogs & cats?
They are considered mildly toxic to both cats and dogs. Sansevieria, the Snake Plant, also called Mothers-in-Law tongue, contain saponins. These are natural chemicals produced by the plant to protect it from insects, microbes and fungi. The level of toxin, however, is relatively low and the complications for a pet that ingests the plant are usually limited to gastrointestinal upset.
