Petplan Insurance shared some very useful tips for Pet Parents planning on watching the Super Bowl! There will be lots of parties and along with these parties, we need to be careful our pets aren't getting in to trouble while we are occupied watching the game!
~ Beer can cause fatal respiratory depression in animals.
~ Chicken wings can splinter and puncture the G.T. tract.
~ Onions in any form are poisonous to dogs.
~Toothpicks can cause severe or potentially fatal damage to G.I. tracts if swallowed.
~ Walnuts and macadamia nuts are especially toxic and can cause vomiting, paralysis, and death.
**Costs for pet parents can range from an average of $830 for treating onion toxicity to thousands of dollars for GI tract surgery.**
Keep pet-friendly treats handy so your pets can celebrate safely right along with you!!
