It occurred to me a roundup blog post made the most sense to put important information about Easter dangers for pets in one, easy-to-find location. I’m sure most dog and cat lovers know the basics. But this way, if y’all need to share information with new pet adopters, you’ll have one link. What do you think?
Easter lilies appear in yards, churches, nurseries, and even local flower aisles at the grocery story each spring, right in time for Easter. While the blooms look lovely and represent a wonderful Christian holiday to many folks, the plants are dangerous to pets. They are especially toxic to cats, and can kill your feline. She doesn’t even need to eat the plant–just drink water from the vase, or clean her claws after paw-scratching to play with the plant can cause problems. Learn more about Easter dangers from lilies in this post.
Dog chocolate danger happens year-round, but most especially during seasonal holidays. Chocolate Easter bunnies, chocolate eggs, and all kinds of chocolate indulgence fill kid’s Easter baskets with sweet treats. And while cats don’t tend to have a sweet tooth, dogs do. If your pooch finds the kid’s Easter candy first, you’ll be in for a long day of potential doggy diarrhea and vomiting (or worse!). Learn more about Easter candy danger to dogs in this post.
DANGER TO BUNNIES –KNOW THE RABBIT FACTS
Bunny rabbits, especially baby bunnies, rank way up there on the cute factor. When Easter rolls around, all too often well-meaning folks want to “gift” living creatures to children. Now, a pet rabbit can be a delightful companion. But baby bunnies grow up, have specific needs, and aren’t disposable. Hey, I know you know that–or you wouldn’t be reading my blog! But other folks may give in to impulse, so here’s an article to help prepare the future bunny rabbit owner with what to expect.
Okay, y’all, what other Easter challenges have you faced? What else should be included in this round-up, do tell!
