Pet Poison Helpline's Pet Care Tips for Valentine's Day and All Year Long
MINNEAPOLIS (February 8, 2010)
With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, love is on everybody's mind. As we give affection to our loved ones, we must not forget about our four-legged friends.
Pet Poison Helpline has compiled a list of ways pet owners can shower their pets with love and affection - not only on Valentine's Day - but year round. From making sure pets stay fit, to keeping poisonous items out of reach, the following tips will ensure pets stay healthy and happy and will (hopefully) be around for many Valentine's Days to come.
* Grow catnip for your cats to nibble on as they please. You can also use "wheat grass" which pet owners can buy from any pet store. It helps give cats something to chew on and spares your houseplants. That said, still keep poisonous plants like Easter lilies out of the house, and make sure all new plants and bouquets brought into a household are non-toxic.
