Easter with pets

The blessed joy of Easter can sometimes bring unexpected problems for our pets.  

The Easter watch list includes:

  • Easter Lilies, and other plants are toxic to cats.  They cause nausea, vomiting, and kidney failure!
  • Easter grass can cause very dangerous intestinal lacerations.
  • Chocolate toxicity can cause seizures and death.
  • Ham bones are delicious to dogs but can get stuck and lead to intestinal ruptures.

This is such a beautiful season of celebration and many wonderful traditions.  It is so easy to become focused on visiting family and special events that are so important to the holiday.  Sometimes it is easy to forget our pets while we celebrate, but remember.... ingestion of any one of these things means an emergency visit to the vet, often with catastrophic results.

So this year enjoy the blessings of the season, but keep a watchful eye on your four legged family.
