- KEEP YOUR CANDY FOR YOURSELF! - Chocolate and other candy can be toxic for cats and dogs —Candy is loaded with sugar which can lead to serious stomach problems and pancreatitis. The darker the chocolate the more toxic it is…. Chocolate contains caffeine-which can cause stomach upset, heart problems and seizures.
- SUGAR FREE Candy is even more dangerous because it can contain Xylitol which can cause serious blood surfer fluctuations and liver failure.
- Raisins – Remember! Raisins are toxic to cats and dogs even in small amounts and can cause kidney failure.
- Candy Wrappers – If cats or dogs eat candy wrappers it can cause life-threatening bowel obstructions and liver failure.
- Candle, Glow Sticks, & Batteries are very dangerous for cats and dogs. The chemicals in glow sticks and batters WILL burn your pet. Even the scents of most candles are toxic to cats and dogs.
