A weekend if filled with lots of yummy treats for us but the consumption of these by pets can be fatal.
In our featured picture, there are 3 potential dangers to pets despite the image being very sweet. Spring flowers and bulbs are toxic to pets. The chocolate eggs contain theobromine, a chemical that can make dogs very sick. Finally, the little toy plastic bunnies are a potential choking hazard.
Being aware and informed could save your pet’s life and prevent you from having to take an emergency trip to the vets.
Here’s a list of common Easter items that you need to be careful of around pets
🍪 Fruitcakes and hot cross buns
🥄 Sugar free items – contain Xylitol
🎈 Small pieces plastic/rubber from Easter toys

If you suspect your pet has eaten or digested something they shouldn’t have, contact your vet immediately.
