Keep Your Pet Safe Over Easter

Are the members of your household bunny-hopping into Easter—and fluttering like butterflies with preparations? Amid the hubbub, make sure your pet doesn’t frolic its way into any springtime hazards. Check out these Easter pet safety tips from PetMD and the ASPCA.

1. Choco-no-no
Keep chocolates, raisins, and artificially sweetened treats away from your pets. Chocolate is potentially toxic to dogs and cats; according to PetMD, dark chocolate and unsweetened chocolate are the most toxic. Consult your veterinarian immediately if you suspect your pet has eaten chocolate.

2. “Fill”-ing like trouble?
If you’re looking for another reason to dislike Easter grass, here it is: This filler can pose choking and digestive hazards to pets. Keep pets out of baskets—candy wrappers, foil, plastic eggs, and toys can also be dangerous.

3. Not so egg-cellent
Pets shouldn’t eat raw eggs due to possible salmonella contamination. While you’re on the egg lookout, make sure the dye you use is nontoxic.

4. Food blues

PetMD cautions that you shouldn’t give fatty foods, onions, or garlic to your pet. Fatty foods like ham can upset your pet’s stomach (or cause more serious issues), while onions and garlic can be toxic, depending on the amount.

5. Flower away
All parts of the lily plant are highly toxic to cats. Consider other decorations if you share your home with a feline. View the ASPCA’s entire plant list here.
