Holiday Safety Tips
- Holiday turkeys and hams are very tempting to dogs and cats. Eating these and other rich, fatty foods can cause problems ranging from stomach upset to pancreatitis. Also remember anything used to prepare or serve the holiday meal is inviting to your pet. This includes the skewers and strings used to close the turkey, as well as carving knives.
- Place your Christmas tree in a stable stand and attach it to a window or wall with a sturdy fishing line. This will help prevent the tree from toppling should your pet jump on it or climb in it.
- Pick up any ornaments, hooks, or tinsel that fall on the floor. Your pet could experience serious internal injuries if he ingests any of these items. Sharp pieces from broken glass ornaments can cause lacerations in the mouth, on paws, or other parts of the body.
- Some popular holiday plants, if ingested, can cause serious stomach upset for your pet. A few plants to keep well out of your pet’s reach are holly, mistletoe, and poinsettias.
- Remember to unplug indoor holiday lights when you’re not home to supervise your pet. Many pets like to chew on light cords or can become entangled in them.
- Monitor your pet while near decorations or gift wrapping; they can be dangerous if ingested. Ribbons, yarn, and string can cause intestinal obstruction and bunching of the intestine along the length of the string. These conditions require surgery and can be fatal. If your pet ingests any of the above items, call your veterinarian immediately.
- After the 4th of July, the winter holidays are the number one time of year that pets are usually lost. Make sure your holiday guests know the rules for your pet and are aware if he is allowed to roam free throughout the festivities. If your pet becomes anxious or fearful, put him a quiet room to relax. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, your pet can become stressed. Take time every hour or so to check on him and say hello!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
