Tonight is the first night of the Easter Triduum: Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday, which bring Lent to an end and begin the Easter Season.
Since I won’t be posting on Sunday, allow me this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Easter.
As for the pet-related content, remember that chocolate (especially dark chocolate, unsweetened chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder) and candies containing the artificial sweetener Xylitol are especially toxic to pets.
We have a Chocolate Toxicity Wheel provided by the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, which assists the veterinarian in determining the relative risk of chocolate ingestion in dogs. But let’s be honest: it’s better if we never have to use it! Keep those Easter treats of out your pet’s reach.
