With the long Easter weekend coming up, you’ll have to find ways to keep both you and your furkids busy! But first, here are a few things you should keep in mind:

What are Easter pets?

Animals typically associated with Easter include rabbits, chicks, ducklings, and even puppies or kittens. But remember, all of these are living, breathing animals - they are not impulse buys and should not be gifted to anyone unless its a well thought-through decision.

Can you get Easter eggs for dogs?

Chocolate is toxic for dogs, so please don’t feed any to your dog. You can, however, make homemade treats of all kinds for your dog to enjoy on Easter Sunday while you enjoy your chocolates. You can also use plastic, paper, or wooden eggs to hide treats - this is a great way to get your dog engaged in a mentally stimulating game!
