Spring flings, stings, and risky things.

With the longer days and warmer temperatures of spring come increased risks to our cats and dogs. These risks include unwanted pregnancies, parasites, allergies, fur balls, exposure to poisonous plants, grass seeds, and stings.

Pet owners can help minimise the risks by desexing pets, treating for fleas and ticks, grooming to remove shedding fur, and keeping them away from toxic plants such as lilies, daffodils, and tradescantia.
