Easter is almost here and, for many, that means a visit from the Easter Bunny. While it’s a great chance to catch up with family and friends, it’s important to know that your pets can feel a little out of sorts during festive seasons.
Festivities come with disruptions to their ordinary routines, visitors coming and going, parties, households filled with loud humans laughing and talking, and celebrations with lots of tempting human food … the list goes on!
In addition to these things, each festive season comes with some other dangers for our pets that we need to be aware of.
Over the Easter holidays, most homes have an abundance of chocolate and other goodies that would not ordinarily be in so much supply. When our pets see us eating these things, they will most likely want some as well!
Don’t let their big, beautiful eyes sway you though, because some of these things can be toxic or dangerous to dogs and cats.
Chocolate, in particular, can cause sickness and toxicity in our pets, because their digestive systems just simply don’t work in the same way as ours.
Every year, our local veterinarians report an increase in chocolate toxicity cases around the Easter period, so it’s important to be aware and keep your treats safe from prying paws.
