Feliz Navidog, Meowy Christmas and Happy Mew Year!

During the Holidays, there are many new hazards for our pets. Here's a quick reminder to ensure that you and your pets have a safe and joyous time. 
*  Holiday Food - Fatty foods can cause pancreatitis and gastrointestinal issues.  Chocolate, coffee, and onions are toxic to dogs and cats.  Rising dough on a counter top is irresistible to some pets, and can cause serious problems. Don't forget that wrapped food gifts under or on the tree can be easily consumed by dogs, cats, birds and small pets.  Not only are the food items a problem, but those wrappers are impossible to digest.

*  Holiday Plants - Many lilies are deadly to cats. Mistletoe, poinsettias and holly cause gastrointestinal upset for all critters. Christmas tree water can be filled with chemicals or bacteria and pine sap is dangerous if ingested. Secure your tree to the wall so your pets can't knock it over.

*  Decorations - Tinsel, ribbon, ornaments and hooks are attractive play things for many small animals.  If swallowed they may cause internal blockages requiring surgery. Broken glass ornaments can cut paws and mouths. If your pet likes to play with things on the tree, decorate the lower third with unbreakable wood or plastic ornaments.

*  Candles - Put burning candles in places that are inaccessible to your pets. They could set themselves on fire or tip the candle over and start a fire in the house.

*  Batteries - Don't leave batteries for those Christmas toys lying around. They are fun to play with, but contain corrosives. If ingested, they can cause mouth ulcerations and intestinal issues.
Remember to tell your pets about any visitors that will be coming, or if you will be away over the holidays, and if things are going to be stressful, give them Rescue Remedy in their water dish.
Blessings to each and every one of you humans, cats, dogs, horses, birds, reptiles, fish and small critters.  Have a wonderful holiday season filled with joy, laughter, friends and good times. I love having you in my life.
