Easter Lilly's

Easter Lilies Can be Deadly for your Cat!

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center in partnership with the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) is leading a nationwide campaign to warn cat owners about the dangers of Easter lilies and certain other types of lilies. "Easter lily, tiger lily, rubrum, Japanese show lily, some species of day lily, and certain other members of the Liliaceae family can cause kidney failure in cats," says Dr. Sharon Gwaltney-Brant, Veterinary Toxicologist at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, "All parts of these lilies are considered toxic to cats and consuming even tiny amounts can be life threatening to your cat." Cat owners are encouraged to consider safer alternatives to Easter lilies such as Easter Orchids, Easter Lily Cactus, Easter Daisy or violets.
