Keeping Pets Safe During the Holidays

Saturday, December 16, 2023
posted by Jim Murphy

The Christmas holiday is here and we should keep some things in mind to keep our furry friends safe. Some are quite obvious, others may not be.

  • Don’t leave your older dog outside in cold, damp wet weather. Make sure he is always in a warm, dry place.
  • If you have an open fire, always use a fire guard and be aware of hot radiators.
  • If your dog is not used to getting left overs, don’t give them to him over the holidays. They may upset his stomach. Never give your dog alcohol of any kind.
  • Car Anti freeze is sweet tasting and irresistible, but fatal to dogs (and cats). Mop up any spills as even a small amount could kill.
  • Make sure that the front door is not left open by guests. Your dog may run out and get hit by a car.
  • If your dog is not comfortable around people that he doesn’t know, provide a safe , quiet place for him.
  • Keep up with his usual routine. A change in his routine could stress him out.
  • Keep your dog out of the kitchen while your cooking. He could get under foot and cause you to trip with a hot plate or pan in your hand.
  • Poinsettias and Amaryllis – These are popular plants around the holidays but are poisonous to your pets. Don’t keep them around the house.
  • Never keep sharp objects around.

Have a safe, happy holiday with your pets. Thank you for your support this year. We look forward to bringing you more important and entertaining information about your pets in 2024.
Remember, pets are family!
