March is upon us, and you can almost feel the spring air making its way around again. You might notice in the next couple months that buds are blossoming, and flowers are rising from the once frozen ground. But let’s not forget about your pets though. March is more than just a month where you can ditch the jacket and start fantasizing about your longer, brighter days. March is pet poison prevention month; a crucial month to start learning about foods, plants, and more that can harm your pet when ingested, so let’s refrain for just a minute about spring daydreaming to learn about what’s toxic for your pets.
- Apple seeds
Plants around the house
These are just a couple things that can make your pets severely ill. Also, when placing these items in the trash, make sure you have it in a secure place for no access. We all know dogs are good at dumpster diving.
If ever your animal gets into a situation where they’ve ingested something toxic, make sure to remove the items away from your pet, so they do not ingest furthermore and make sure to contact your local vet. Even if you think that your pet may have gotten into something bad, it’s always a good idea to contact us anyways. If you have any questions concerning things your pets shouldn’t eat, contact your vet, and we’ll be happy to help prevent poisoning.
