Business Profile: Royston Vets – Spring Dangers to Pets

Spring is a beautiful time of year however, there are a few things we need to be aware of that can cause harm to our beloved pets.

Spring flowers such as Daffodils and Azaleas, particularly the bulbs and flower heads, can be dangerous to dogs causing vomiting, diarrhoea and lethargy. If severe enough, it can cause dehydration, tremors and convulsions. For all cat owners Lilies are highly toxic and can cause severe Kidney Failure, these should be avoided or placed somewhere that your cat will not reach. Be careful of Snail bait. Small amounts of this can cause problems in coordination, muscle spasms, twitching, tremors, seizure or even death if left untreated. These symptoms can be seen within an hour so make sure you contact us immediately if you think your pet has ingested these.
