6 Easter Safety Tips for Pets

6 Easter Safety Tips for Pets

Easter is a fun time for humans of all ages and for pets! Keep these 6 Easter safety tips for pets in mind to make sure your pets are safe this Easter.

Keep lilies plants away from pets.

Lilies are known to be toxic to pets, especially cats. Even getting a little pollen on their fur required immediate medical attention. It’s best to not bring lilies into your home to avoid any accidental contact.




No chocolate for pets.

Chocolate is a tasty treat for humans but it is not good for pets. Keep all chocolate out of your pets reach and do not let them out in the yard until you have picked up any leftover eggs.





Pick up any leftover eggs from an egg hunt.

Small plastic eggs can be a choking hazard as well as their contents. Before you let your pet outside do a double check of your yard to make sure there were no missed eggs.





Keep trash cans secure.

Pets can be mischievous. Make sure your trash cans are secure so they don’t get into something they shouldn’t. Broken plastic eggs, basket filler, and discarded candy can all be dangerous for your pets to ingest.





Keep pets in a separate room.

Sometimes the best thing to do is keep your pets locked in their own room, away from the noise and tempting treats. Cats especially may prefer a quiet space to hide.





Dressing up your pets? Read their body language.

Some pets like being dressed up while others don’t. Watch your pets body language when attempting to put a festive costume on them. If you are dying your pets fur make sure to use a pet safe dye. Contact your local groomer for recommendations.
