The Q&A Archives: Pet safe Mulch

Question: What type of mulch is safe for pets? My dog often eats plants, grass, etc. in the yard.

Answer: The mulch we most often hear about as being dangerous to pets is the cocoa bean mulch. I am not aware of problems with the more commonly used mulches such as pine bark or hardwood bark, but if you are concerned I would suggest you check with your veterinarian just to be sure.
