- · Both dark and milk chocolate can be fatal to pets, especially baker’s chocolate. Instead of dark or milk chocolate consider white chocolate, which is much less likely to cause a problem.
- · If you MUST have chocolate in the house make sure it’s kept out of reach. And don’t assume plastic wrap is enough to keep a curious kitty or pup from taking a nibble!
- · Sugar-free candies contain xylitol, which is dangerous if ingested. If your Valentine cannot have candy for health reasons, consider lovely baskets of dried fruits fresh fruits or nuts.
Silk flowers, white chocolate, flameless candles and gift bags without ribbon are pet-safe choices for Valentine’s. Items pictured from Home Goods.
