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

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.
