Spring Poison Prevention

Spring is in the air! Here are some tips for preventing common springtime poisons.

Flowers:

Azaleas: Keep away from dogs and cats as just a few leaves can be toxic to the heart.

Lilies: Keep away from cats!  All parts of the lily are toxic to cats.  Even a little bit of pollen can cause kidney failure.

Fertilizers:

Some fertilizers contain organophosphates.  These can cause excessive drooling and tearing, urination, and sometimes seizures.

Iron can be used as a fertilizer, in excessive amounts this can lead to vomiting and diarrhea.  It can also affect the liver and the heart.

Chocolate:

Easter candy is great, but not for your dogs.  Keep the chocolate out of reach!

Cleaning products:

Toilet bowl cleaners, bleach, oven cleaners and grill cleaners are all potentially corrosive and can cause harm if ingested.
