Nothing can put a damper on the holiday cheer like an emergency visit to a vet clinic. These tips can help prevent a holiday disaster with your fur babies.
Keep people food out of the reach of your pet, and ask your guests to do the same.
Make sure your pet doesn’t have any access to treats, especially those containing chocolate, grapes/raisins, onions or other toxic foods.
Don’t leave your pet alone in the room with lit candles, a decorated tree or potpourri.
Keep holiday plants out of reach of pets.
Ponder leaving the tinsel off your tree if you have a cat.
Make Sure your Christmas tree is secure to keep it from falling over if your dog bumps it or your cat climbs it. Hanging lemon-scented air fresheners in the tree may deter your cat from climbing it.
Provide a safe place for your pet to escape the excitement if you’re entertaining guests. If your pet is excitable or scared, consider putting your pet in another room with some toys and a comfortable bed.
