Pet safety for the holidays

Other tips to keep your pets safe and happy throughout the holidays:

Make time for them!  Don't forget to keep their schedules consistant with walks and exercise. 

Don't let your guests feed them table food as they could become ill.  Make certain to have plenty of fresh water; pets get stressed, too, and pant more, increasing their need for water.  Watch out for candy wrappers and aluminum foil pieces which can cause choking.

Watch for 'adult beverages' - they can cause nausea, vomiting and even coma when over-indulged!

Wishing you and your four-legged or tailed friends a happy and safe holiday season.
