I have an Aloe Plant in my home; should I throw it away?

Aloe plants are found in homes all the time because of their medicinal properties. Aloe plants are desirable houseplants, and most pet owners have no idea they are toxic to pets. Deciding whether or not to kick your aloe plant to the curb is a matter of weighing the risk individually.

If you have had an Aloe plant indoors for a while already and your pet has shown no interest in it, then more than likely, you are fine keeping it indoors. However, if considering adding the plant to your home, think about how curious your cat or dog is before you do.

An excellent option to keep an aloe plant indoors is to find a shelf up high out of reach from your pets.
