Dogs and cats around Christmas trees

Having a dog or cat can wreak havoc with the family Christmas tree. If your dog is still a puppy chances are, he will enjoy playing with the ornaments and pulling on the garland or tinsel. You must make sure that your dog is trained properly before leaving him alone with the tree. Cats on the other hand may not be as destructive but a shimmering ornament may be a temptation for your cat. Here are a few tips. Keep non breakable ornaments at the bottom of the tree. Make sure that the tree is anchored properly and most of all don’t use tinsel on the tree!  I almost lost a cat one time because he ate the tinsel which got logged in his stomach. He developed a life threatening infection but after lots of care, fully recovered.  I use garland on my tree instead of tinsel.  Even though I haven’t noticed my cats touching the garland at all, it still a concern.                                                                      Make sure that you keep you pets safe during the holidays                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Remember, your pets count!
