Easter Dangers

With Easter just around the corner, we thought it would be a good time to highlight some potential hazards to be aware of to make sure your pets stay safe!

 🍫 Chocolate

Chocolate is poisonous to dogs! Symptoms can appear in 2-4 hours and they include:

  • Fast breathing and fast heart rate
  • Seizures
  • Shaking

Please call your vet so they can work out if your dog has eaten a toxic dose.

❌ Hot cross Buns

They contain raisins which are toxic even in low quantities, ingestion of grapes or raisins can cause renal failure.

 🌷 Spring Bulbs

Spring bulbs such as daffodils can cause digestive upset. While the leaves and flower can be toxic the bulb is the most dangerous part of the plant if eaten.

🦴 Bones

Bones can cause intestinal upset if eaten or in some cases bowel blockages or even perforations. Small fragments can sometimes get lodges in the mouth or small fragments may get lodged in the gums of your pet. We do not recommend feeding your dog bones.

We hope you all have a safe Easter
