Pet Safety Tips for Easter

Easter is this Sunday. Where is the time going? Just can't believe it is spring and the spring holidays are here. We love to celebrate this time of year. And our pets can enjoy the holiday too. We just need to make it safe for them. Here are a few tips to keep your dogs and cats safe.
1. Keep the fake grass away from them. Cats and dogs like to chew on this. It can make them really sick, so use paper instead. You can shred green tissue paper and it will make your Easter basket look good.
2. Our cats love to chew on plants so be careful if you purchase Easter lilies. They are very toxic to cats. So find a safe place for them, so they won't be disturbed or just don't purchase them and be on the safe side. Better safe then sorry!!
3. Keep those Chocolate bunnies away. Chocolate is toxic to both cats and dogs. It's ok to have in the house, just keep it out of their reach.
4. Plastic Easter eggs are also a hazard. If they chew and swallow a piece it may indicate that you have to go to the vet to have it removed. Which is very expensive and something you don't want to go through. So keeping those plastic eggs away is a must.
 Have a Happy Passover and Happy Easter!

  2. Great Easter tips. Hope you have a lovely Easter and thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  3. we learned the hard way ..2 yrs ago we came home from Mass and discovered our dog ate all the chocolate candy...she didn't get sick but we were worried enough to call the vet on call..PLUS the dog ate all the kids candy!!!!!

  4. Carob is a great chocolate substitute for doggies. Don't leave them out of the Easter fun :D
