Nothing can spoil holiday cheer like an emergency visit to a veterinary clinic.
These four tips can help prevent a holiday disaster with your pets.
1. Keep people food out of the reach of your pet.
Also, ask your guests to do the same.
Make sure your pet doesn’t have any access to treats, especially those containing chocolate, onions or other toxic foods.
2. Don’t leave your pet alone in the room with dangerous items.
Don’t leave lit candles or a decorated tree or potpourri in a room where your pet is.
Keep holiday plants especially holly, mistletoe and lilies out of reach of pets.
Consider leaving the tinsel off your tree if you have a cat.
3. .Secure your Christmas tree from falling.
Make sure it has a strong base so even dog bumps it or your cat climbs it, don’t fall over them.
Hanging lemon-scented car air fresheners in the tree may deter your cat from climbing it.
4. Provide a safe place for your pet to escape the excitement.
Such as a kennel, crate, perching place, scratching post shelf or hiding place 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.
There you have the simple four things you need to do to keep your best friend safe and sound during the season of joy.
