Easter Hazards for Pets

Here's a list of Easter items that may be harmful to your pets.

Chocolate: It contains theobromine. The Theobromine in chocolate can cause vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, irregular heartbeat, seizures and, in some cases, death to cats, dogs and other small pets. Make sure easter baskets are inaccessible to pets.

Easter Grass: If eaten, this can cause intestinal blockage. Cat especially love to play with anything like this. Make sure to keep this out of their reach and clean any up that may get on the floor after children open their baskets. Using shredded newspaper may be the safest option.

Easter Lilies: Lilies are poisonous to cats and can be deadly. Some common poisonous plants include: Easter lily, tiger lily, rubrum, Japanese show lily, some species of day lily, and certain other members of the Liliaceous family. If eaten, these can cause kidney failure in cats.

Small Toys: Small toys can be choking hazards and any candy, even if it is not chocolate, is not good for you pets.

Just some words of warning. Have a safe and Happy Easter.

This is such good advice. We all love our pets and a holiday would be just the worst time to have a vet emergency.

I LOVE the Easter dachshund.
