Easter hazards for pets

Easter is fast approaching, and as much as we are looking forward to this great excuse for a chocolate-fest, don’t forget to look out for these Easter hazards for pets!

Are you a chocoholic?

Chocolate is highly toxic to pets, and is the cause of many phone calls to the APCC. When hiding your chocolate for the Easter egg hunt, or just stashing it away, make sure that your pet can’t reach it! Chocolate can cause gastrointestinal upset, pancreatitis, and stimulation to the nervous system.

Watch out for small objects!

If you have young children, you may also have small Easter toys and decorations lying around. These, if ingested, can become lodged in your pets’ gastrointestinal tract.

If you have green fingers

Even if you’re not big on Easter celebrations, you might want to make the most of the long Easter weekend by gardening. Make sure you keep your pets locked away when using toxic fertilizers and herbicides, and make sure they can’t get hold of the containers.
