The Ruff Report: Pet poisons bloom everywhere in the springtime

Those fragrant flowers, budding shrubs and lush green grass in the yard look bright and pretty, but they also have a dark, ugly side - they may be sickening, or even killing, your pet.

The Ruff Report: Valentine's Day one of most poisonous times for pets


Candy and flowers may be enjoyable for people, but they can be killers if ingested by dogs and cats, making Valentine's Day one of the more poisonous days of the year for pets, according to animal welfare advocates.


Pet parents are being advised to be vigilant when it comes to keeping sweets out of reach of their companions, because chocolate is so toxic that it can kill even in small amounts and flowers also can be poisonous and damage internal organs, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
