Spring Pet Poisions

Easter-Lily2-300x188Although we’re glad the snow is melting, before spring is sprung…take a peek at what’s growing in your garden to be sure your dog is safe before it’s in full bloom.

Plants to watch out for in the garden:

  • Tulips
  • Hyacinth
  • Daffodils
  • Lilies
  • Crocus

It’s important to be mindful of the fertilizers you’re using in your soil, especially if you have a digger! It never hurts to wipe your pets paws down after they’ve been out in the yard to reduce the risk of them ingesting something from the outdoors.

Easter is coming so keep an eye out on the chocolates in those easter baskets as they’re always a tempting toxic treat for dogs.

According to petpoisonhelp.com some common signs of poisoning include:

  • Lethargy
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Inappropriate urination or thirst
  • Seizures

If you suspect your dog has been exposed to something poisonous contact your veterinarian immediately.
