Petmania releases top advice to keep furry pets safe this Easter


In recognition of the approaching Easter holiday, Petmania urges pet owners to prioritise the safety and well-being of their furry companions amidst the festivities. 

By following these simple yet effective measures, owners can ensure their pets enjoy a calm and enjoyable Easter, free from any potential health risks. 

Hot Cross Bun Blues: Raisins, Sultanas, and Artificial Sweeteners – A Recipe for Disaster 

These festive buns may be a tasty treat for us, but their ingredients spell trouble for our furry friends. Raisins, sultanas, and artificial sweeteners found in some brands can be highly toxic to both dogs and cats, causing kidney failure and other serious health issues. 

Lily Lurking: A Beauty with a Bite 

While lilies are a popular Easter bloom, their beauty hides a sinister side for cats. All parts of the lily plant, including pollen and even the water they stand in, are highly toxic and can cause fatal kidney failure in cats. Keep these flowers far away from your feline friends. 

Plastic Peril: Easter Grass Hiding a Sticky Situation 

Those vibrant Easter decorations might look fun, but they can pose a serious threat to curious pets. Plastic Easter grass and other decorations can be easily ingested, causing blockages in your pet's digestive system, leading to vomiting, pain, and potentially requiring surgery. 

Table Scraps Trouble: A Feast for Humans, a Nightmare for Pets 

While it's tempting to share the Easter feast with your furry companion, resist the urge! Fatty meats like ham and lamb can cause stomach upset and lead to pancreatitis, and other digestive issues in pets. Leftovers laden with spices and seasonings are equally harmful.
