"First week of Spring" - Hazards, poisons and dangers (oh my!) around the house that can hurt your dogs! 

* Last year the Animal Poison Control Center reported nearly 200,000 cases of pets involved in fatal and near fatal poisonings.  The culprit?  Toxins and other household dangers often overlooked by very owners who love their pets.  Today we have Camp Bow Wow of Peoria to show us some common hazards we have in our homes this spring. 

  • Blooming flowers: blue bells, oleanders, tulips and spring bulbs - if eaten causes vomiting and diarrhea, highly toxic!
  • Common weed killers - if ingested (licked off grass and rocks) can cause vomiting and diarrhea if untreated causes organ failure!
  • Spring cleaning items: acidic and high alkaline products are harmful to pets! (we'll tape over brand name of cleaning bottles!) READ LABELS of pet warnings
  • Easter hazards we hear from vets! - Chocolate eggs, any chocolate! Don't have treat bowl for guests and remind all kids not to feed the dogs their treats! 
  • Easter Lilies are TOXIC! 
  • Easter "grass" in baskets - don't buy the plastic kinds! (dogs can't digest this and can blog their system!) Buy paper grass or just use tissue. IF ingested, it won't hurt them. 
  • Plastic eggs or rotten eggs! (please pick up both after use!) Rotten eggs (if left out and ingested) can lead to food poisoning and plastic eggs can cut intestines and cause internal bleeding! 
  • Brunch food - do NOT feed Fido any ham!! (or any foods from the table).  For example, ham is high in fats and sodium and can cause diarrhea, heavy breathing/panting and vomiting.
