Easter weekend is upon us! With it the hope of some warmer weather very soon (hopefully lots of puppies and kittens!) and a few treats around the house which may not be so good for our furry friends.
Lillies and cats just don’t go together. Every part of the plant is poisonous, even the pollen. Affected cats are often obvious because they tend to stain their nose with pollen as they investigate the flowers (cute but scary). Owners are often aware of the dangers, and try to restrict access to the plant. However, cats are very clever getting into places where they shouldn’t be, so it is safer to keep lillies out of the household altogether (and out of your garden as well!).
If you have a dog, then our previous warning about chocolate and raisins/sultanas is again important. Watch those hot cross buns.
If you have an emergency over the Easter break (and we hope you don’t!), the contact details for our emergency clinic are:Elizabeth St Emergency Clinic
55 Elizabeth St Belgravia London SW1W 9PP Ph: 020 7730 9102
We re-open after the Easter break at 7am on Tuesday morning, and we look forward to seeing you then.
In the meantime, we’re thinking about rabbits and the upcoming Rabbit Awareness Week. We’ll be giving away free health checks to rabbits, with plenty of advice on diet and general health care. If you have a rabbit, please phone us to make your appointment. It should be a fun week!
