Tis the Season to be jolly……The Holiday Season is a time of Hustle and Bustle. We are so busy running around shopping and hurrying to get our baking done, that we some times forget to make sure our furry companions are safe. As we all know they want to be included in everything. We can find them scurrying from room to room to see a new face, they can be found in the middle of every activity and for sure they scavenge around the kitchen for any crumbs that may have been dropped. You for sure can’t use the 5 second rule if you drop something, because they have a 3 second rule; get it and eat it in less time than it takes you to bend over to pick it up.
Here are a few tips that may help this Holiday Season:
- Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree… Securely anchor your tree so it doesn’t fall over or get knocked down. Make sure that your pets do not drink the water from your tree it may contain toxic chemicals.
- Deck the Halls with boughs of Holly…. Holly when ingested can cause pets to suffer nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Mistletoe can cause gastrointestinal upset and cardiovascular problems. Many varieties of lilies can cause kidney failure in cats if ingested.
- Thy candles shine out brightly….Don’t leave candles unattended and make sure they are on a sturdy surface.
- There’ll be parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting….. Many holiday foods can be dangerous for your pet. Avoid letting your pets get ahold of chocolate, fatty foods, uncooked dough, fruits and nuts.
- He’s got a bag filled with toys….Make sure to get them appropriate toys, they love to tear up their toys and some like to eat the pieces, so keep them safe.
Be a responsible pet owner and take certain precautions to prevent unnecessary holiday mishaps. Remember to have a safe and happy holiday.
We wish you a Merry Christmas. We wish you a Merry Christmas. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!
