Hello and Happy Holiday Pet Parents!

Thanks again for stopping by the blog. Today I have a quick reminder for all pet parents on some of the holiday dangers facing your pets. We want to share foods with them but be strong! There are definite don’ts to sharing holiday foods with your pets. And of course, it isn’t just food that can put your pet into danger this season. Let’s cover a few areas of concern to ensure a holiday season with as few Veterinary mishaps as possible.

How You Can Help Stop Holiday Pet Mishaps

Do not feed your pet grapes, raisins, milk, or alcohol. Also, they should not receive chocolate, onions, nutmeg, and most varieties of nuts. This can be tricky for some pet parents because we believe that if we are not directly feeding that particular food to the dog or cat that we are not making a mistake. But do remember that these foods hide as ingredients within our favorite dishes. You may forget that spice cake is full of nutmeg and milk! That is a horrible mishap for your pet at any time of the year.

Consider Other Household Holiday Hazards

  • Be certain that your holiday guests are not responsible for causing your pet stress.
  • When it comes to Christmas tree ornaments, leaving lower branches barer is safer for pets.
  • Plants. Mistletoe can be harmful.
  • Tinsel and Ribbon may cause intestinal blockage if consumed.
  • Anti-freeze is deadly. Please keep this out of your pet’s reach.
  • Secure the Christmas Trees! You don’t want them to fall. Pick up shedding from the trees. If ingested, Evergreen needles can become lodged in your dog’s intestine and may require surgical removal.
  • Watch out for lights and wires. If your dog chews any electrical cords it may end in serious injuries [oral burns and/or electric shock]

PS …. Don’t forget to leave off fat trimmings and bones … both can lead to pancreatitis. And those bones? Specifically? They can splinter and they have the ability to puncture your dog’s stomach or intestines.
