Keeping your pets safe during the holidays

The holidays are fast approaching and some thought and preparation can help keep your pets safe during the holidays. If you put up a tree, try to fasten it with a wire to the ceiling so it can’t tip over. Breakable decorations and electrical wires should not be within reach. Avoid tinsel at all costs! Consider fake holiday plants because, holly, poinsettias and mistletoe among others are toxic to pets. Some of those sweet treats that we love are also very toxic to our pets. They can cause an intestinal disaster. Make sure that all food, candy and alcohol is out of reach. Don’t leave trash around, get it out of reach of your pet right away. Give your dog lots of exercise and keep all pets on a regular routine. These are  only small precautions but they can help prevent any unwanted holiday surprise.

Remember, your pets count!
