Happy St Patrick’s Day! While you are celebrating today, be sure to practice safety with your alcoholic beverages around your pets. Here’s what the ASPCA has to say about the effects of alcohol in your pets.
“Alcoholic beverages and food products containing alcohol can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased coordination. It also causes central nervous system depression, difficulty breathing, tremors, abnormal blood acidity, coma and even death. Therefore, under no circumstances should your pet be given any alcohol. If you suspect that your pet has ingested alcohol, contact your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center immediately.”ASPCA
