It’s almost that time of year; fluffy Easter chicks, cute Easter bunnies and chocolate… lots of chocolate! It’s a lovely time of year to spend with family and friends, and of course your pets. In this article we thought we’d discuss a few fun things to do, suggest a couple of gift ideas for your pets and of course remind of the potential hazards – we want you all to enjoy your Easter weekend in safety.
Things To Do this Easter
Easter Baking – If you like to bake, then you may like to try some tasty treats for pets. There are some delightful looking recipes over at the dogbuddy.com blog, including cookies and treats that we’re sure your loveable canines just won’t be able to resist. Head over to DogBuddy.com to check out the recipes and don’t forget to let us know if you try any!
Easter Egg Hunt – All pets love to play. Why not take some of those home-made treats (or some ready-made ones from our shop if you’re not much of a baker!) and take them out in the garden for a pet Easter Egg Hunt? You could even hide boiled eggs, cheese or pieces of meat which your dogs will enjoy hunting down. Just remember before you start the hunt, to make sure there are no hazardous items or plants that your dog can get to.
Day Out – Any excuse for a day out right? Why not take a trip out into the countryside for a walk amongst the wold flowers or perhaps a run on the beach to blow those cobwebs away? You could stop for a pub lunch on the way home! Check out dogfriendly.co.uk for some dog friendly places to visit.
Potential Hazards for Pets this Easter
It’s important not to forget the potential dangers to your pets at Easter. Don’t forget that chocolate and sweets are toxic to both cats and dogs so be sure to keep them away from any human easter eggs. Also beware of certain flowers that you may have around the home at this time of year. Daffodils in particular are poisonous to pets. Read through some of the blogs in our archive for specific posts about flowers that are poisonous to furry family members.
