Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother's Day to all our mums and furr-mums out there !

With Mother's Day being just around the corner, there are a few things to keep an eye out for.



Lilly toxicity

Lilies are extremely toxic to cats, in some cases can lead to death.
The entire plant is toxic, ingesting or mouthing any part of the plant can cause extreme kidney failure within 36-72 hours.
Do not gift lilies to any loved ones with cats, or if gifted yourself, either discard them or keep them well away from your pet cats! Do not allow any access to them!

Symptoms can include vomiting  or signs associated with kidney failure, including; disinterest in eating, lethargy, excessive drinking, depression or no urination.

If you cat has had access to any lilies, please phone your veterinary clinic right away.



Chocolate toxicity

Chocolate can be toxic to dogs, no matter the amount your dog ingests, please contact your vet as soon as possible.
If caught early enough, your vet can induce vomiting to reduce the effects.
Symptoms can include; gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, diarrhoea, excessive urination and increased thirst.
More severe signs may include; lethargy, tremors and seizures.

If you receive any chocolate this Mother's Day as a gift, ensure it is placed away out of access of your pets.
