Easter Lilies 麝香百合

While they may be pretty, lilies are one of the most poisonous plants for cats. We suggests keeping them out of the house (or better yet, purchase artificial flowers). Be aware of symptoms of lily poisoning which include vomiting, lethargy and loss of appetite. Call your vet as soon as possible if you think your pet has ingested lily. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) says that without immediate care, cats who eat lily may develop life-threatening kidney failure within 36 to 72 hours of ingestion.


Poinsettias 一品红


Holiday poinsettias are also dangerous for pets, though not as worrisome as the lily. This doesn't mean your pet should eat this pretty red Christmas decoration, since doing so will likely lead to stomach pain and discomfort, including vomiting.


Chocolate 巧克力

Chocolate is a harmful food for pets. Most adults know this, but that it's adults' responsibility to make sure children know, too. Keep little ones from giving chocolate to pets and do your best to supervise.


All kinds of candy, including candy wrappers 各种糖果,包括糖果包装纸

Too much sugar can give your pet a bellyache, but worse, if wrappers are swallowed, your pet risks tearing of the esophagus or intestines. Clean up as best and frequently as you can when candy is being unwrapped.


Hazardous Objects 危险物品

Many small items can lead to choking – even things you would never expect your pet would attempt eating. Be mindful of buttons, small batteries, twist ties, and rubber bands. In the bathroom, keep hair pins, cotton swabs and dental floss out of reach from your pet.


Coffee, tea and alcohol 咖啡、茶和酒

Coffee and tea leaves are on the ASPCA's list of People Foods to Avoid Feeding Your Pet, as is alcohol. Alcoholic beverages can cause vomiting, diarrhea, decreased coordination, central nervous system depression, and breathing difficulty, among other things.


Toys 玩具

Small, brightly colored toys hold the same appeal for pets as they do children. The problem is that they are choking hazards.


In the garage 车库

If your pet is your shadow and frequently follows you around the house, remember that garage and storage areas need special attention, too. Keep cleaning supplies, antifreeze, fertilizer, de-icing materials and pesticides in a place pets can't easily access.
