Easter break is finally upon us! However, while it’s a holiday for us - and for many of us, a time to celebrate with Easter Eggs and family gatherings. However, there are some serious seasonal threats to our pets - in this blog, we’re going to look at 5 important poisons to be aware of at this time of year.
There are a wide range of plants that are potentially toxic to cats (check out this list for more details!). However, for most plants, poisoning is relatively uncommon because most cats are sensible enough not to try eating them! There are, however, a number that are important, either because cats can be exposed in other ways, or because the plants are so common that poisoning is seen more than very occasionally - and in this blog, we’re going to look at some of the more important plants that are poisonous to cats.
Have you heard of the “One Health” movement? If not, you will be soon! As we learn more and more, we’re realising just how connected human health, animal health, and environmental health are. As a result, in recent years vets, doctors and environmental scientists have started working more and more closely… to study the problem and hopefully find some solutions.
While anyone who was completely surprised by the freezing weather and snowstorms of the last couple of days obviously wasn’t paying attention (!), I think it’s fair to say that a lot of us were startled at how bad it actually got. Down here on Dartmoor, we haven’t seen weather like this for a decade or more. So, I thought it was a good idea to put up a quick blog on caring for animals in the snow.
