Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Deck the Hall With Caution

Make It A Safe Holiday For The Whole Family

Spruce up your home for the holidays, but play it safe. Let the following dog and cat healthy decorating do’s and don’ts guide you:

  • Hang all ornaments, tinsel, and tree trimmings above your pup’s nose; swallowing pieces of any of these can cause painful intestinal blockages.
  • Keep all electrical cords out of Bowser’s reach, and check for exposed wires.
  • Don’t let the tree water become a watering hole, since harmful bacteria and fertilizer from the tree bark collect in it.
  • Be aware that some holiday plants are toxic to dogs. For example, mistletoe can cause cardiovascular and breathing problems, and poinsettias can lead to upset stomachs
