Pro­tect your pets

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

Pet own­ers should pro­tect their an­i­mals dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. The Aus­tralian Ve­teri­nary As­so­ci­a­tion (AVA) is ad­vis­ing own­ers to think ahead. AVA pres­i­dent Dr Robert John­son said: “Many hol­i­day plants can be toxic to your pet in­clud­ing holly, mistle­toe, Christ­mas tree pine nee­dles and lilies.” Signs of tox­i­c­ity in­clude vom­it­ing, di­ar­rhoea, tremors, seizures, drool­ing, loss of ap­petite, de­pres­sion and in­creased heart rate.
