The Best St. Patty’s Day Treasure is the Four-Legged Furry Kind
Leading New York and online retailer, Harvey’s Pet, offers a real bounty of St. Patrick’s Day treats and treasures for your furry family members – no rainbows needed
Johnstown, NY – For many, St. Patrick’s Day is one the most high-energy holiday celebrations of the year. After all, who doesn’t love an oversized frosty mug of green beer? This St. Patrick’s Day, popular online and New York-based retailer, Harvey’s Pets, offers some special treat suggestions for the four-legged treasure who loves you all year round.
Once again, we’ve rounded up a few key options to spoil the world’s best pet (yours, of course!) and also made sure to include some safety reminders to make sure that our furry friends are able to enjoy St. Patty’s Day just as much as the rest of us.
1. Merrick Seasonal Grain-Free “Kiss Me, I’m Irish!” Stew Recipe Canned Dog Food, $3.29. Okay, okay, we concede that not all of our precious pets are Irish, but then again, neither are we; but who needs an excuse to enjoy more slobbery kisses from a pooch with an extraordinary smooch?! We sure don’t!
Merrick is known for it’s super high-quality ingredients and with flavors such as “Grandma’s Chicken Pot Pie” and others, it’s a longtime favorite with even the most choosy canines. “Kiss Me, I’m Irish!” will have your dog enjoying the luck of the Irish, only this luck is a seasonal edition made with beef, carrots, Yukon gold potatoes and peas in gravy. Our finicky feline even tried to talk us into sharing some of the beefy wealth with her as well – it’s that good!
2. FELINE GREENIES™ Dental Treats Oven Roasted Chicken Flavor, $2.99. For a holiday that’s all about inviting others to “kiss” you, it’s definitely a great idea to make sure that Mr. Whisker’s kisses don’t smell like last night’s leftover tuna. Not only are FELINE GREENIES irresistible to mini house lions, what better way to show how much your kitty is loved than by taking care of his or her oral health (countless studies have shown good dental care may extend a cat’s lifespan)?
3. Harvey’s Pets St. Patty’s Cannoli Fresh-Baked Gourmet Dog Treats, $2.49 each. It’s a good thing that Harvey’s makes it clear that these delectable-looking cannolis are strictly for dogs because otherwise these lovely treats just may have accidentally-on-purpose made their way into our own tummy. Lovingly made with molasses and human-grade ingredients without soy, wheat, or corn, these little delights are on sale too! Yes, please.
While ideally celebrations are nothing but fun for us, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Animal Poison Control Center, St. Patrick’s Day may require a little extra vigilance to keep those four-legged family members safe, healthy, and happy:
St. Patty’s Day Pet Safety
Did you know that shamrocks, most often identified with St. Patty’s Day festivities, are toxic to pets? In small amounts, ingesting this greenery may leave your pet drooling, shaking their head, and vomiting with an upset stomach. Shamrocks are anything but lucky when eaten in larger amounts, which can lead to kidney damage or worse.
It goes without saying that many of us imbibe a little more heavily during March’s leprechaun extravaganza, but in doing so, pet parents should take extra pains to ensure that any type of alcoholic drinks aren’t within reach of Fido or Mr. Whiskers. It doesn’t take much alcohol at all to get our pets into real emergency-level trouble. Pets who’ve been exposed to alcohol may experience vomiting, depressed mood, slowed respirations, or even death – depending on the size of your pet and how much he or she may have drunk.
Lastly, Irish soda bread, a popular St. Patty’s Day snack, contains raisins which are also toxic to pets. It’s always best to stick with healthy veterinarian-approved treats that are not only nutritious, but delicious. Fortunately, Harvey’s Pets has you covered when it comes to all things delicious pet treat-related items!
