Most pesticides or insecticides (typically those that come in a spray can) are basic irritants to dogs and cats, and result in clinical signs of drooling, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Are you getting outside finally and doing some work in the garden? Remember that even organic products can be an issue for pets. Many organic fertilizers contain blood meal and bone meal.

Easter Dangers – Part 2 of 4: Lilies

We can not stress enough how important it is to not have lilies in a home with cats. Even drinking the water from a vase containing Easter lilies, a small lick of pollen or ingestion of a leaf can be enough to cause renal impairment in a cat. In most situations, symptoms of poisoning will develop within six to 12 hours of exposure.

Easter Dangers – Part 1 of 4: Plain chocolate, filled chocolates, coated chocolates… and more chocolate.

Remember if you are hiding Easter Baskets; please make sure to keep them (and bags of chocolate) way out of your pet’s reach. Don’t forget, Fluffy may be able to hunt down that Easter Basket way before the kids find it!
