Glitter, lights, great-smelling treats—we're not the only ones enticed by all the holidays offer.
Here are a few tips for pet safety from the Hudson Valley Humane Society.
Holiday cooking means lots of food, please remember that common ingredients are harmful to pets (including but not limited to): onions, leeks, raisins, chocolate, liquor, garlic, grapes.
Keep holiday gift wrap out of your pet’s belly! Dogs and cats find gifts and home decorations (garland, lights, ornaments, candles, etc.) extremely enticing. However, if a pet consumes these items it could mean an emergency trip to your vet. Keep them away from trouble and consider cordoning them off from your gifts/decorations, etc. when you are not home to supervise.
Poinsettias and bulbs are holiday favorites but problematic for pets. Always keep plants out of their reach.
