OTHER important reminders for this time of year
Don't forget during this season of abundant chocolate that this is extremely toxic to dogs (and other animals too).
Always ensure all Easter treats are kept well out of the way.
The golden rule
The darker the chocolate the higher the cocoa content and the more poisonous this is to your dog.
For further information on the dangers of chocolate to your dog, please take a look at our guidance sheet.
Remember, if you are at all concerned that your dog has eaten any amount of chocolate, please contact us immediately. If this is during the hours we are closed, please contact Vets Now on the number above.
The Lilium species are toxic to cats!
All parts of the plant including the flowers, leaves and pollen are thought to be toxic and can cause renal failure.
If you are ordering flowers as a gift this Easter and they have a cat, order a bouquet without lilies
Hot cross buns
As yummy as these are they shouldn't be shared with your pets!
They contain spices, raisins and currants which are toxic if ingested by your pet and can cause kidney failure.
It's always better to be safe than sorry.
We'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all
a wonderful and happy Easter time
from us all at Hillside
