LILIES, CHOCOLATE HARMFUL TO PETS; OTHER EASTER PET SAFETY REMINDERS.
As shopping for the Easter holiday continues this week, the SPCA Serving Erie County reminds pet owners and people bringing gifts to pet owners that chocolate and Easter lilies can be harmful, even deadly, to pets.

All parts of the Easter lily, day lily, tiger lily, Asiatic lily, rubrum lily, and some others are toxic to felines. Ingesting even a small amount of the plant can result in kidney failure and, if untreated, death. Shortly after ingestion, a cat may vomit, become lethargic, or develop a lack of appetite. As the kidney damage progresses, these signs worsen. In most cases, a cat must be treated within mere hours of ingesting the plant, or damage to the kidneys will be irreversible.

Collaboration once again the key in responding to emergency events
Our region recently dealt with another major winter weather event as Mother Nature hit Erie County hard last month with some downright brutal conditions. I am proud of the collaboration that took place throughout the county in addressing the lake effect snow storm in mid-January. We were able to coordinate a strategic response that eventually grew to include thousands of workers and hundreds of pieces of equipment of all types that assisted hard-hit communities.
