We are continuing our series of making sure your pup stays safe this spring!

Springtime is here, which means going outside more often and playing with our dogs, either on walks to the park or in our own backyards. But with spring comes more hazards for your pup. Here are a few tips for keeping your pet safe this spring! One thing you can do for your pets is to make sure you keep track of all the extra Easter chocolate!

Easter Treats and Decorations can Cause Trouble for Pets

Chocolate is a popular sweet treat during Easter. But chocolate eggs and bunnys can be very toxic to dogs and cats. Lilies may look nice when setting up Easter brunch, but the flowers are fatal to cats. Plastic grass can be tempting for kitties to nibble on but can result in severe vomiting and dehydration or an obstructive digestive tract. Also keep in mind, baby chicks and real bunnys are hard to resist but they grow up and need special care to keep them happy and healthy.

Gresham Animal Hospital is equipped to provide the services and treatment your pet needs under one roof. Keep Gresham Animal Hospital in mind next time your dog or cat needs a checkup, shots, or vaccines. Give us a call at 503.666.1600 to schedule an appointment today.
