Tips for Your Pet's

Some harmful plants and foods
Keep your pet SAFE on Easter
(and year-round)
  • Lilies can be deadly to cats, and many types, including the Easter (trumpet) lily can cause kidney failure with just a single nibble from a leaf. (Click here for more information on plants)

  • Chocolate (especially baking chocolate) can kill your pet!

  • Rich, fatty foods, such as turkey skins or gravy can cause pancreatitis, a serious inflammation of a digestive gland that is painful and deadly.

  • Any kind of bone can tear or obstruct your pet's intestinal tract. Poultry bones can be especially dangerous or even fatal.

  • Strings to tie turkey or beef during roasting can tie up your pet's insides.

  • Also, watch out for the little red "pop-up" thermometers used to roast meats. Dogs and cats often eat these tasty things, causing intestinal blockage.

  • Onions and garlic are toxic and can destroy a pet's red blood cells, leading to anemia. Foods containing high amounts of onion powder should also be avoided.

  • Grapes and raisins contain toxins that can cause kidney failure in your pet.

  • Coffee is dangerous to animals.

  • Nicotine is a stimulant that increases your pet's heart rate leading to collapse, and in the worst case, even death.

  • Alcoholic beverages damage your pet's liver almost immediately, even in small amounts.

  • In addition, keep all leftover food out of reach in a closed container. Any garbage can contain toxins such as e-coli that can affect your pet's organs. This includes leftover tinfoil that, when chewed, can obstruct your pet's intestinal tract.
