Easter Basket Ideas For Your Pet
Easter is coming up this month. A good way to keep your pets preoccupied and away from the chocolate that will be laying around the house this Easter season is to make them their very own custom Easter basket!
The first thing you should do is select an inexpensive bowl or basket to place the treats and goodies inside. When selecting your container, you should not use a wooden or straw basket. Wooden or straw baskets will tempt your pet to chew them up, not only making a mess but also possibly injuring your pet’s insides if the wood is ingested. When you begin to customize your pet’s basket in your own fun and creative way, you should not add any decoration that your pet could chew off and ingest. You may also be tempted to use flowers to be festive, but before you do that you should research which flowers are toxic to your pet. A list can be found at : http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/pet-owners/basics/top-10-plants-poisonous-to-pets/
Now, you are going to want to fill up the basket! Please do not use fake Easter grass for decoration, because once again your pet can ingest the plastic grass and it could cause bodily harm to your furbaby. Here are some Easter ideas for gifts for your pets!
