5 Valentine’s Tips All Pet Families Need to Know! By Dr. Charlotte Flint Senior Consulting Veterinarian, Clinical Toxicology Roses are red, Violets are blue, If I’ve got a pet, what do I do? Valentine’s Day is all about love, and we know how much you love your pet! Chances are your furry family member is going to get some Valentine’s snuggles this year and maybe even a gift of its own. The human family members of your house may also be getting gifts this year, some of which may be highly toxic to your furry friends. Check out our tips on how to show your love without spending Valentine’s weekend in the ER. Do keep Valentine’s Day chocolate away from pets! Who doesn’t love a big box of chocolate for Valentine’s Day? Unfortunately, dogs are more than happy to help themselves to chocolate if given the opportunity! Calls involving pets ingesting milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and chocolate baked goods were the top three most common exposures handled by Pet Poison Helpline. Chocolate ingestion by dogs can result in agitation, vomiting, diarrhea, tachycardia, tremors, and seizures, depending on the dose ingested. If your pet gets into chocolate, call for help from your veterinarian! Don’t forget the less obvious Valentine’s Day dangers! Easter Lily. Cat owners should check all flower bouquets closely for lilies (i.e. Lilium), such as Easter lilies, stargazer lilies, tiger lilies, Asiatic lilies, and Oriental lilies as these flowers can be deadly to cats (although they are safe for dogs). Even exposure to lily pollen and water from a vase of lilies can result in rapid onset kidney failure when ingested by cats. Also be careful with ribbons and bows on flowers and balloons, as they can cause dangerous intestinal foreign bodies when ingested by pets. We all know chocolate can be toxic to dogs, but there are other people foods which can also be harmful for our canine companions. Macadamia nuts, coffee beans, grapes, and raisins are particularly dangerous for dogs with the latter two causing kidney failure. The toxicity of these foods increases when they’re chocolate covered. Also, be aware of the potential for xylitol in sugar-free candies, chocolates, and baked goods. While this natural sweetener is not toxic to people, it’s highly toxic to dogs, resulting in rapid onset hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and potentially, liver failure. Finally, all pets can be sensitive to alcohol, so keep alcoholic drinks out of reach. If you overdo it on Valentine’s Day, be certain to put the ibuprofen and other NSAIDs away and out of reach, too. Ibuprofen was a top five toxin in February. Do find safe gifts to show your pet Valentine’s Day love! A new collar, treats, or toys can all be great gifts for pets on Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day can also be a great time to try a new dog or cat treat recipe or make a new toy. Also consider giving toys, bedding, food, or a donation to an animal shelter or rescue group in your pet’s name! Don’t forget that many pets appreciate the gift of time and love more than anything! An extra walk and some extra time cuddling or playing costs nothing and will be greatly appreciated by your cat, dog, or other pets. The extra exercise and snuggle time is a healthy, happy choice for you as well. Happy Valentine’s Day!
