Easter Safety Tips For Pets

Easter is around the corner and with this egg-stra special holiday, comes celebrations with both the 2-legged and 4-legged family members. The furry members need some extra special care when it comes to some specific Easter items. Keep these toxins away from your pets this Easter! 

Easter Basket Filler (aka plastic grass)
It might look cute in your Easter baskets, but it looks like regular grass to your pets, which might lead them to munch away on it. If swallowed, plastic grass can cause serious intestinal blockages that could require surgery to remove.

Fatty Foods
Too much fatty food can cause upset stomachs and even pancreatitis. Don't get your pet in the habit of begging under the table for bits of your dinner (no matter if it's a holiday).

Easter Eggs
Whether you opt for real or fake plastic eggs, your pet might mistake them for treats! Make sure you remember where you hide your eggs so your pet doesn't find them days later. Spoiled eggs can cause upset stomachs and fake ones can cause intestinal blockages.

Chocolate
Whether it's a chocolate bunny or a chick, any form of chocolate is a no! The caffeine and theobromine in chocolate can cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures and even death when pets ingest it.

Lilies
Many types of lilies, including Easter lilies, are severely toxic to cats and cause rapid kidney failure. But that won't stop your feline friends from chewing on them. It's best to keep lilies out of the house altogether!
