The FDA is reminding pet owners that Easter lilies, chocolate bunnies and other seasonal items aren't safe for pets. Veterinarian Melanie McLean says that even a small amount of pollen licked off the fur can cause problems for a cat, so owners who think their feline friend has been exposed should seek veterinary attention immediately. Dogs are less susceptible to Easter lilies, but lily of the valley is dangerous to canines. Seasonal chocolates are also a source of danger, particularly to dogs, who are more likely to sample chocolate bunnies.
