Keep Your Cat Safe – Lily Flower Toxicity in Cats





Emergency Vet Melbourne Cat Lily Flower Toxicity

With Mothers Day approaching this weekend, we thought it was important to write about Lily Flower Toxicity in Cats.

Lily flowers are toxic for cats and can cause death. Toxicities in pets are a common cause of vet emergency. Lily toxicity is seen most often during holidays and on special occasions such as Valentine’s day and Mother’s day when flower bouquets are given as gifts.

Rubrum lily Tiger Lily Easter Lily

Many lily species are toxic to felines and can include, but not limited to:
• Easter lily
• Tiger lilyR
• Rubrum lily
• Stargazer Lily
• Japanese show lily
• Red lily
• Western lily
• Wood lily
• Day lily

All parts of the plant are toxic and a small amount, even 1-2 leaves, can be lethal. Toxicity can cause kidney failure, vomiting, diarrhea and seizures.

If your cat potentially ingested lily’s prompt and early intervention often leads to a good prognosis, however once clinical signs develop and progress then it may be too late to reverse the damage done.

If you have any concern about your cat ingesting Lilies you should contacting your local vet or 24 hour pet hospital immediately as lily ingestion is an animal emergency.

Lost Pets after New Years Eve


The Hangover for Pets

Welcome to 2014.  For most of us we are just starting o crawl out of bed and look for the Panadol. At both our 24 Hr. Pet Emergency Hospitals we have seen a large influx of stray / lost  pets post fireworks.  We often treat injured stray animals and working with local councils and The Lost Dog’s Home re-unite many of the lost pets. 

One thing that is common is that when people and pets move home, their microchip details are not updated.  So many pets have microchips, but phone numbers and addresses are not correct.  This can make it almost impossible to re-unite your pet to you,

If you have lost your pet overnight, please ensure that your you update your microchip details immediately

Central Animal Records     National Pet Register  

If you have lost your pet the contact either of our 24 Hr Animal Hospitals to see if we can help.  Other places that you should call:

Local Council  

Lost Dogs Home

All the Team at Animal Accident & Emergency hope that your pets are safe and well.  We are Always Open, We Always Care.  Essendon 9379 0700;  Point Cook 8368 7400;  www.animalemergency.com.au
