Critter Chatter: Easter Safety Reminders

by L Phillips Brown, DVM – The Essential Pet Vet

The Easter holiday is a time for oodles of candy, good food and bright, colorful hats. It is also a time to be particularly diligent about what your dogs and cats can eat. Easter lilies are highly toxic to cats, so you might want to consider having a bouquet without lilies. The plastic green grass that lines Easter baskets could be a source of edible interest to exploring felines and might result in intestinal blockage. Chocolate Easter bunnies and eggs are my favorites, but can cause elevated heart rate and blood pressure and possibly seizures in overindulgent dogs.  Being careful of what inquisitive pets can gobble up will help you enjoy Easter and keep your dogs and cats safe.
