TVM UK prepares veterinary practices for Easter

TVM UK is developing awareness materials to make pet owners aware of the common dangers that are present during spring

With the onset of warmer days and lighter evenings we all welcome the arrival of spring, however, the season does present some serious dangers to pets.

TVM UK, is helping veterinary practices prepare their clients for Easter by developing awareness materials to make pet owners aware of the common dangers that are present during spring and provide them with help and advice to protect their pets.

The eye-catching poster provides information on common dangers such as:

  • Lilies, which can cause kidney failure in cats
  • Chocolate and sweet treats containing Xylitol, which are in abundance at Easter time
  • Raisins, currents and sultanas found in hot cross buns which can cause kidney failure in dogs
  • Garden dangers such as fertilisers and weedkillers, mouldy food used in composting, slug pellets and plant bulbs
  • Adders, which, as the weather gets warmer, wake up from hibernation and can bite inquisitive pets

As well as focusing on common dangers, the posters also reinforce the importance of S.P.E.E.D when dealing with poisoned pets:

  • Stop the pet eating any more suspected poison
  • Phone the vets
  • Emergency appointment
  • Evidence – bring labels/samples/vomit
  • Don’t delay!

Will Peel, Product Manager at TVM UK explains:

“While most pet owners are mindful of the danger that certain foods and plants can pose, when you’re enjoying the spring sunshine and the long Easter weekend, it can be easy to overlook potential pet hazards. It’s vital to reinforce the dangers that can come with the warmer weather to help protect pets from poisoning which can cause serious illness or worse.”
