The Holiday Season is here again! Keeping our furry friends safe during the Holidays doesn't have to be hard! Here are some tips for you!
Place your Christmas tree in a corner, blocked off from your pet. If your pet tries to get in the tree, try placing bell ornaments on the bottom of the tree to warn you when your pet's curiosity gets the best of them! Cover the bottom of your real trees to keep pets from drinking the water as the chemicals in the tree water can be harmful. Tinsel adds a nice touch to the tree, but place it high enough that pets can't reach it. Ingesting tinsel can cause dangerous intestinal blockage. Be careful with tree lights, as they present a tangling hazard as well as a burning hazard. Electrical shock is also harmful if your pet bites through tree light wires.
Be careful with edible decorations, like popcorn, cranberries or edible ornaments. These are enticing to pets, but can cause serious gatrointestinal problems if ingested.
Burning candles should be placed well out of reach on high shelves or mantels, there's no telling what might happen with curious noses and wagging tails! Homes with fireplaces should use screens to avoid accidental burns.
When gift wrapping, be sure to keep your pet away. Wrapping paper, string, plastic and cloth can cause intestinal blockages. Scissors can be another hazard, so do your wrapping with caution!
Make sure outside lights are secured to the ground to avoid pets getting tangled in the wires, or potentially chewing the wires.
Don't feed your pets from the Holiday Feast! Keep their diets as close to normal as possible, as the fatty foods from our holiday table can cause a host of problems ranging from GI upsets to more serious Pancreatitis! If you want to "treat" your pet, try giving them a canned form of their normal diet, and maybe even heat it up for them so they feel like they are part of the festivities!
All of us here at the Animal Medical Hospital wish you and your family a Joyous Holiday Season and a wonderful New Year!
