…..taking care of your pet while you are away. Sadly, too many pets get left home alone during this period.
Some foods are toxic for pets. Avoid hanging any chocolate treats on a tree or placing them underneath the tree, as that may tempt your cat or dog to try and get them. Toxic foods include: Christmas pudding, grapes, dried vine fruits, onion, garlic, certain nuts and mince pies.
Some holiday plants are poisonous for our pets: Poinsettias, Lilies, Holly and Mistletoe.
Another thing to look our for is that some pets can become stressed when their routine changes, or they may become anxious when unfamiliar people visit or too many people.
And while the festivities are a great time to relax and enjoy the company of friends and family, you need to ensure that it’s a restful and safe time for your pets 🐶🐱
Tomorrow we will look at Travelling safely during the holiday period 🎅…..
