Three Top Easter Hazards For Pets 2021

Easter – A fun holiday for kids yet can be hazardous to pets.

The top three hazards are:

  1. Chocolate – Easter is the top day for chocolate intoxication in pets beating out Christmas, Valentine’s Day and even Halloween. Possibly because Easter baskets are often left unattended and very tempting for pets. Also, Easter candy is often hidden both inside and outside as part of Easter egg hunts.
  2. Lilies – or true lilies often called Easter lilies are toxic to cats and can cause serious kidney injury. All parts of the plant can be life threatening.
  3. Plastic Easter Grass found in Easter baskets is appealing to pets but can cause a life-threatening obstruction that may require surgical removal.
