About Us

Nicole O’Kane is the author of poisonous2pets

Nicole O’Kane has worked at Griffith University, Queensland for the past three years. She has a BA, majoring in Behavioural Science, is a member of the Golden Key Honour Society (University of Queensland division) and has studied Naturopathy for three and a half years.

In 2002, Nicole bought two puppies, Paris and Brandy who quickly became the centre of her universe! Nicole’s avid interest in gardening and horticulture, especially the toxicity of plants, proved to be of great value when Brandy became seriously ill from eating garden plants. Despite her knowledge in this area, Nicole found it difficult to quickly and easily locate the information she needed. The more she researched the topic and discussed it with people, the more she realised that this information should be available in an easily understood format for all pet owners and carers.

Nicole, Paris and Brandy now all live happily in a safe and dog friendly home and garden on the Gold Coast in Queensland!
