Holiday Pet Safety Tips

Pet PassagesChocolate in all forms can be very dangerous. Symptoms include seizures, vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity, increased thirst, urination and increased heart rate.

Pumpkins & Decorative Corn are relatively harmless, yet can produce intestinal upset or blockage. Plants to keep out of reach are holly, mistletoe, poinsettias, pine needles & lilies.

Cords, Plugs & other fixtures can look like chew toys. Unplug decorations when you are not home. Tape down or cover cords to help avoid shocks, burns or other serious injuries.

If you dress up your pet, make sure that the costume is safe. It should not constrict movement, hearing or breathing. Try on costumes beforehand. If your pet seems distressed, allergic or shows abnormal behavior, consider letting him go au naturel or donning a festive bandana.
