Easter is a time of chocolate Easter
eggs and goodies - unfortunately these
can be toxic to our little furry friends.
- Here are a few dangers to look out
1) Chocolate Easter eggs contain
theobromine which in large quantities
can be fatal to our furry friends
so keep all Easter eggs and any chocolate
treats away in a cupboard so they
wont be tempted - any ingestion can
cause vomiting , diarrhoea, kidney
failure. Seek vet guidance if ingestion
is suspected immediately.
2) Hot cross buns while scrummy with
butter contain dried fruit such as
raisins and sultanas which, again,
are toxic to animals.
3) Bright sparkly rustling wrapping
from Easter eggs can appeal greatly
to cats and dogs. It smells of chocolate
and is fun to play with but chewing
on wrappers can lead to blockages
, things like twine and ribbons also
can get stuck - dispose of all wrapping
properly and quickly.
4) When the weather turns warmer
we tend to venture into our garden
to start planting bulbs - these are
just a few which can be toxic if dug
up and eaten: bluebells/daffodils/foxglove/tulips
- again seek veterinary advice if
So enjoy all the goodies of Easter
but think of the safety of your furry
