Chocolate And Pets

February 17, 2012 by staff 

Chocolate And Pets, Pet lovers may want to spoil their beloved critters on Valentine’s Day, but they should think twice before letting Fido anywhere near the chocolate — among other things.

With all the chocolate and other sweet goodies that will flow around on Feb. 14 — and Feb. 15, when leftovers are taken to work — pet owners should remember that certain human treats are poisonous to animals.

“Unfortunately, some well-intentioned gifts of love can be toxic to your pets,” Pet Poison Helpline Assistant Director Ahna Brutlag said on the helpline’s Web site. “Certain flowers, candy and sweeteners can be hazardous, so keeping those things out of their reach is one of the most loving things you can do for your pets this Valentine’s Day.”

The PPH points out that ingesting lily petals and leaves can cause kidney failure in cats and that rose thorns can also be harmful.

Then there’s the food.

Hershey’s lists a bunch of its own products that should be kept away from one’s pets, citing the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
