Keep your dogs healthy, happy & safe this Christmas
Be sure that everyone at your gathering is aware that your dog is roaming the house, so they know not to leave outside doors open.
One of the easiest dog Christmas safety tips to follow.
Avoid tinsel. Although many of us love the shimmering look of tinsel on a tree, tinsel is hazardous to pets.
Puppies especially like to chew it, and if swallowed it can cause an intestinal blockage.
If you have any concerns, contact your local vet.
Presents, it is best to keep them from under the tree until Christmas Eve or even Christmas Morning or invest in a large present sack which are available to purchase in most stores.
On Christmas Eve
Be careful leaving out Santa’s cookies, make sure they are high & out of your dog’s reach.
Don’t decorate your tree with edible candy canes and chocolate decorations these are all too tempting for your dog.
Beware of where you are storing your Christmas Chocolate stash and disposing of it!
Chocolate is extremely toxic to dogs, make sure you keep it out of reach at all times.
If you have any concerns, contact your local vet immediately.
Place burning candles up high on shelves or mantels, out of your pet’s way, there’s no telling where your dog’s waggy tail may end up.
Never leave candles unsupervised, and keep your dog away from any areas with open flames or wax. Homes with fireplaces should use screens to avoid accidental burns.
