Did you know? 

The Italian Greyhound acquired the nickname  “the 40 mile per hour couch potato” from their LOVE of napping! Although they are known for their speed, they would much rather relax than race! They are the fastest breed out there but that doesn't mean catching Z's isn't more of a priority.

TOP 4 EASTER HAZARDS FOR DOGS

CHOCOLATE

If ingested can cause stomach upset, pancreatic upset (sometimes very severe), tremors, hyperactivity, increased heart rate & seizures from the caffeine and sugar. The darker the chocolate, the more toxic it is. 

Tip: If you are having an Easter Egg Hunt, take note of how many eggs you hide, how many are found and keep your dog away from these areas until the egg hunt is completed. 

 

XYLITOl

Xylitol is a very common ingredient used to artificially sweeten candy and gum. It is known as "sugar alcohol" because if ingested at a toxic dose, it can be deadly to pets. It can cause vomiting, weakness, muscle tremors, coma, seizures and liver failure. 

Tip: If you plan on serving Easter treats or hiding them around the house, ensure that they are kept in a place far away from your pets. Do not leave a dessert table unattended. 

 

PLASTIC GRASS (EASTER DECOR)

As we know, just like people, pets can't absorb plastic. If and when consumed, the plastic grass can get stuck and wrapped up in the intestines, causing a blockage. Vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain and weakness occurs when dog experience a blockage, most times this results in the surgical removals of the object that is causing the block.  

Tip: If you decide to decorate your house for Easter, be sure that every item used to decorate it placed out of your dog's reach. 

EASTER PLANTS

Easter is a time for Lilies and blooming bulbs. Although many plants can be harmful to pets, Lilies are particularly harmful to cats, exposure to these plants can cause serious kidney and intestinal problems. 

Tip: If you plan on buying Easter plants, ensure that they are well out of reach. If you are trying to grow these plants in your Garden, be sure it is in an area that your pets can not get to.
