Valentine’s Day can be as much fun for pets as it is for humans – as long as dangerous items are kept out of paws’ reach!
When sending a floral arrangement to someone with a cat, specify that it contain no lilies—and when receiving an arrangement, sift through and remove all dangerous flora. If your pet is suffering from symptoms such as lethargy, vomiting or diarrhea, he may have ingested an offending flower or plant.
Seasoned pet lovers know that all types of chocolate are potentially life-threatening when ingested by pets. Go ahead and indulge, but don’t leave chocolate out for them to find!

Don’t let pets near roses or other thorny-stemmed flowers. Biting, stepping on or swallowing their sharp, woody spines can cause serious infection if a puncture occurs. De-thorn your roses far away from pets.
