The RSPCA is asking pet owners to keep sugary Easter treats out of their pet’s reach over the Easter holidays, with many traditional Easter foods such as chocolate and hot cross buns containing ingredients that are harmful to pets.
Owners are also advised to check their vet’s Easter opening hours and locate their nearest after-hours vet so they can act quickly if their pet becomes unwell over the Easter break.
Those going away for the Easter holidays are reminded not to leave pets home alone – with RSPCA Inspectors regularly called out to properties where owners have gone on holiday and failed to make adequate arrangements for their pet’s care.

RSPCA WA welcomes today’s announcement by the Minister for Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence, the Hon Simone McGurk MLA, of a one-off funding commitment of $100,000 by the WA Labor Government to support the organisation’s Pets in Crisis trial program.
