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.

Bring on Spring! (While Keeping Your Pet Safe)

Spring is officially here! While those cooped-up days of cabin fever might be waning, it’s important to keep a few things in mind before you and your pet savor spring in all its glory. Here are a few springtime pet safety tips from PetMD and the ASPCA.

  1. Keep spring-cleaning chemicals out of pets’ reach. Follow all labels regarding use and ventilation, and don’t forget to store cleaning products properly.
  2. Before you fling open those windows to let the spring air waft into your home, be sure that your windows are snugly screened and that no screens are in need of repair.
  3. Inspect your dog’s leash and collar for tears.
  4. Make sure your pet’s ID information is up to date.
  5. Reintroduce more vigorous exercise slowly so that your pet can acclimate to it.
  6. Keep pets away from recently fertilized lawns and consider pet-safe alternatives. Likewise, keep lawn-care products out of pets’ reach.
  7. Check to see if your pet is up to date on its medications and preventatives.
  8. Keep those Easter staples out of pets’ reach (especially the ubiquitous Easter grass!). Chocolate and artificial sweeteners are harmful to pets; lilies are toxic to cats.
  9. Take your furry pal to the vet if he seems to be suffering from spring allergies.

14 Sweet Ways to Pamper Your Pet for Valentine’s Day

You don’t need a special day to pamper your pet, but Valentine’s Day is a nice reminder nonetheless. This “people holiday” can be a wonderful “pet holiday” too! When those paws come padding across the floor to see you on February 14th, you’ll be ready with lots of love and attention. Get inspired with these 14 sweet and simple ways to pamper your pet.

Pets on pet furniture cover

1. Playtime for two
The two of you can always find something to do! You know your pet’s favorite activity, whether it’s romping around playing fetch or scampering after a toy mouse, so set aside some time for lively play.

2. Spending time with others
If your dog is social and well-behaved, he’ll probably enjoy spending time with other dogs, kids, or adults. Your dog gets to be lavished with pets and pats; plus, a visit from your pup might brighten someone’s day!

3. Going for a walk
If the weather allows, go for a walk past your dog’s favorite sniffing grounds.

4. Quiet time
If your tuckered-out puppy needs a little downtime, let him rest, but not without a blissful belly rub or scratch behind the ear, of course.

5. New toy
You don’t have to get rid of his favorite slobbery stuffy, but you can always surprise your pet with a new toy to pique his interest.

6. Home spa day
If a professional pet grooming session isn’t in the budget, have a home spa day. Groom your dog so he’s looking extra-handsome, or brush your cat while she purrs with contentment.

7. Homemade meal
Tie on your apron, and prepare your pet’s favorite meal – just be sure that the ingredients are healthy and safe for your pet.

8. Special food treat
Pick up something delicious (to canine minds, anyway) from the dog bakery, or indulge your pet in a treat that he doesn’t get very often. Delight your parrot with nutrient-rich fresh fruit; some seeds and certain fruits may be off-limits.

9. Shared sofa space
You don’t have to banish your pet from the sofa anymore; just be prepared with a pet furniture cover that protects most of the furnishing, or a pet cover with bolsters.

10. Shared bed space
Let your dog or cat catch 40 winks during the day or slumber for the night at the foot of your bed. You don’t have to fret about damage to your comforter or bedspread if you have a bed protector for pets.

11. Accent table/pet house
Give your small pet his own safe, cozy hideaway while furnishing your room with an accent table/pet house. Placed beside your chair or bed, this table will suit both you and your pet!

12. Food area update
Chow time! If your dog’s food mat is looking a little dingy, or it keeps sliding across the floor, place his bowls on a new personalized pet mat with slip-resistant backing.

13. Sweet(er) dreams
Freshen up your pet’s bed by washing the removable cover. Or, if it’s time for a new pet bed, find him something plush and soft with plenty of extra cushioning. Older animals especially will appreciate having a memory foam pet bed for pressure relief.

14. Animal attire
Winter shivers shouldn’t ruin this day. If your dog has short/thin hair or a weakened immune system, he might be more comfortable in a sweater or jacket. Just be sure to find a material that won’t cause your pet discomfort, and measure properly so that the fit is good. Socks or boots with grips can be helpful to elderly dogs or those in need of traction on slippery areas.
