The Cornell Animal Hospital is a full service veterinary clinic located in Guelph, Ontario. Established in 1987, the clinic emphasizes preventative medicine as the key to your pet's health and longevity. We have state-of-the-art facilities which allow us to administer exceptional medical, surgical and dental care along with non-drug therapies such as laser therapy.
It is the time of year for Easter Lilies and spring bulbs. However, they pose a serious problem for your cat if ingested. Easter lilies and other lilies can be toxic to cats, causing kidney failure and death. All parts of the lily can be toxic, and eating just one leaf can result in severe poisoning. After eating a portion of an Easter lily, a cat will generally vomit and become depressed within 2 hours. The vomiting may subside, but the cat will not eat and continue to become more depressed.
Contact the clinic immediately if you know or suspect your cat has eaten any part of an Easter lily.
Other types of lilies that are also toxic are tiger lilies, rubrum or Japanese showy lilies, and various day lilies. Many other bulb plants are also poisonous such as daffodils and hyacinths.
The season is approaching when we need to protect our animals against tick-borne diseases (Lyme) and Heartworm. Before we begin preventative treatment, it's important to test to be sure your pets are disease-free. So, call the clinic today to book your Heartworm and Tick tests!
We are very proud of our Cat Friendly Practice designation!
