Pets as gifts are a bad idea...|
Pets do not make good Christmas gifts for many reasons.... Adopt now so no rushed decisions or plan on it after the holiday. Here is a link to more details on pets as gifts.
Christmas Tree - Anchor your tree so it does not tip over causing injury to your pet. Tree water breeds bacteria that can cause stomach upset, so cover water under the tree.
Tinsel-less - Kitties especially love tinsel, all sparkly and light-catching. This pretty decoration can lead to obstruction if swallowed. Leave the tinsel in the store.
Chocolate not so sweet... - Remember chocolate can make your pet very sick if ingested. Keep all candy, unattended plates of food, and the garbage can lid tight so your pet can not eat anything that can hurt them.
Stocking Stuffers - Toys can be torn apart allowing your pet to swallow pieces where they can become lodged in the esophagus, stomach or intestine is best kept out of the house. Long, stringy things with ribbon can be a cats dream, but dangerous to all. A cat dancer, a new ball, racket ball for your dog, a kong, a stuffed catnip toy are great choices.
Mistletoe and Holly - These pretty holiday plants are dangerous to dogs and cats. Artificial plants made from silk or plastic or a pet safe bouquet will still warm up your home.
Leftover Frenzy - Fatty, spicy and no-no human food, as well as bones should not be fed to your furry friends. No need for costly vet bills during this joyous season
Holiday Glow - Lights and candles are great ways to set the stage for a special holiday scene. Do not leave lighted candles and lights that can burn your pets or worse your home. Blow them out and turn them off.
All wired up - Wires and batteries and glass ornaments should be kept out the reach of those pesky paws. Electrical shock, burns to the mouth, and cuts from glass can be the end to a wonderful holiday celebration.
Meds Away - Make sure all medications are locked behind secure doors. Guests need to keep their meds zipped up and packed away too.
