Easter with pets

Easter tips and ideas for a fun and safe day with your pet

Easter for pets is a special event, just like it is for humans. There are so many new colors in the house, baskets with goodies on the table, and these little oval shaped balls lying on the ground and throughout the house. Your human family members aren't the only ones who love to celebrate the holidays: your cats and dogs do, too!

Give Them an Easter Basket

Now this is a little trickier than the Easter egg hunt because easter baskets are not exactly good for your dog. The baskets are easily splintered when chewed on by your dog and the grass in the baskets can be toxic to your dog. This is why giving your dog their own “basket” while your kids open their baskets can be helpful. You can just hand them the items or put it in a pet safe basket without all the Easter grass.

Have a Doggy Easter Egg Hunt

Doing a doggy Easter egg hunt before your kids hit the yard can be a great way to include your pet. You can put treats in the yard and even an extra boiled egg. Here are a few tips for making this memorable:

  • Do not use plastic Easter eggs to hide treats. Your dog will not be able to find them and the plastic can break and harm them.

  • Follow your dog to make sure they get all the treats

  • Do the dog hunt first to ensure your dog does not pick up chocolate left from children

Keep Chocolate Away From Pets

Chocolate contains theobromine and can cause hyperactivity, seizures, and an elevated heart rate in dogs. Keep the Easter stash hidden and away from your dog.

Sugar Substitute Xylitol is Toxic to Pets

Candy that has the sugar substitute xylitol, a sweetener, is toxic to dogs and cats. It’s often found in candy, gum, and some baked goods. If your pet ingests it, a drop in blood sugar can occur and cause problems such as seizures and liver failure. You may have to put your dog in another room while the kids celebrate Easter and dive into that basket of candy and chocolate.

Easter Lilies are Toxic to Cats

Easter lilies are very pretty but cats have a tendency to chew on them. These flowers are toxic to cats and can cause vomiting and lethargy. Hopefully your cat doesn’t jump on every surface in the house and you’ll be able to find a nice spot for the flowers. But if not, it may be best to avoid having Easter lilies in the house to keep your cat safe.
