Jerky Treats and Easter Lilies – Double Trouble

It has come to our attention that there are reports of dogs getting sick (kidney failure) from jerky treats which are made in the USA.  At this time we recommend avoiding all jerky type treats until the causative agent has been identified and manufacturers can assure us that their products are safe to feed.

Lilies are popular flowers, especially in the spring time.  They are profoundly toxic to cats and it would be safest to avoid these plants in your home or garden if you have cats.  Peace lilies are not toxic (they are not “true” lilies).  If your cat has exposure to the leaf or flower of a lily, please call us or your nearest emergency clinic – treatment within the first 6 hours after ingestion is critical.

If you have a question about this or any other aspect of your pet’s health, please call us at (905) 727-3003.

Have a great long weekend!
