Easter baskets are always a hit with the kids. Before you fill that basket, make sure you keep it’s location in mind. Most of us know that chocolate is harmful to our pets. But, did you know that a lot of candies of today contain xylitol, a sugar substitute. A small amount of xylitol can cause a dog to have a quick drop in blood sugar, which can lead to seizures and other serious things.

Enjoy your Easter this year and keep in mind that your pets are curious and want to join in the fun. It’s up to you, the responsible pet owner, to keep your pet safe this Easter season.
