As Easter approaches, we start to see a steep increase in two types of toxicity.....lilies for cats and chocolate for dogs. Every single part of the lily is toxic to cats - the leaves, the stem, petals and pollen. No amount is safe to ingest and it can cause severe health complications ( including death). Even if you think your cat will not eat the lily, it is never safe to have in your home, as each year we see cases from the cat simply licking dropped pollen off its feet. If you are giving lilies as a gift, choose something else if the recipient has a cat. And dogs and chocolate....oh, the irresistible Easter chocolate! At the Metro Animal Emergency Clinic, we think dogs love chocolate just as much as people. They will go to incredible lengths to eat chocolate, including opening closets and unwrapping chocolate hidden waaaay in the back. Chocolate toxicity depends on the type of chocolate, the amount ingested, and the weight of the dog. Signs of toxicity will vary depending on these factors but it can be anything from vomiting to cardiac arrest - chocolate is simply not safe for dogs, so be sure to keep it up high and out of reach! If you suspect your pet has ingested either of these substances please call your own veterinary hospital immediately, or 902-468-0674 if they are not open.
