The Holiday Season Is Here!

The holiday season is here! With that being said, I think we should cover a few bases for safety.

First if you do have a tree inside, tree water, which may contain fertilizers that can cause stomach upset. Stagnant tree water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and your pet could end up with nausea or diarrhea should he consume.

Tensile, you know that really pretty stuff; cats like that too! If they should swallow it, dehydration and possible surgery. It’s best to brighten your boughs with something other than tinsel.

Wires and electric are everywhere, oh my! Batteries and glass or plastic ornaments out of reach. A wire can deliver a potentially lethal electrical shock and a punctured battery can cause burns to the mouth and esophagus, you can never be too safe.

You may abide by your rules of no people food, but what about sweet granny? She can’t say no to Bella’s sweet begging eyes! It’s probably best to keep them secured in their own secluded space. A Room of Their Own: Give your pet his own quiet space to retreat to, complete with fresh water and a place to snuggle.

Have great holidays and be considerate of your pets!
