Easter Pet Safety

Every holiday brings things out of the ordinary into our homes. Take note of a few precautions to ensure your pet's safety this Easter.

1. Cats love to play with the plastic grass in Easter baskets. However, that grass causes big problems for their digestive system.

2. Any pet may look at an Easter basket filled with candy as it's personal candy buffet. Keep baskets away from nose reach of any pet.

3. Easter Lilies are a poisonous plant for pets, and can cause kidney failure and death. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your cat eats any part of an Easter lily. Treatment includes causing the cat to vomit and must be done within 18 hours of ingesting the plant.
