The Holidays Are Approaching, Make Sure Your Pets are Safe

Sunday, November 17, 2019

Some thought and preparation can help keep your pets safe during the holidays. With Thanksgiving approaching, make sure your pets are not fed table scraps. Turkey bones can cause real problems for dogs. If you put up a tree, it’s always a good idea to wire it to the ceiling so it can’t tip over. Breakable decorations and electrical wires should not be within reach and as we mentioned in a previous blog, tinsel must be avoided.  Consider displaying fake plants. Mistletoe, Poinsettias, and holly amongst others are toxic to animals.  Some of the sweet treats that we love during the holidays can wreak havoc on our pet’s intestines.  Make sure that all food, candy and alcohol is out of reach.  Be vigilant about he trash.  Give your dog lots of exercise and keep all pets on their regular routines. These are small precautions but they can help prevent any problems during the holidays.

Remember, your pets count!
