Keeping your pets safe during Christmas
The last thing you need during the festive season is the added stress of a trip to the emergency vet – we’ve compiled a list of top tips that should help get Christmas off to a good start.
– Keep decorations well-secured and out of reach, baubles and tree decorations in particular are easily chewed or swallowed.
– Holly, mistletoe and poinsettia can be poisonous to to pets.
– Chocolate and raisins are poisonous to dogs, keep chocolate on or under the tree – far too tempting for sensitive noses!
– Defrost your turkey somewhere safe. Raw meat poses the same infection risks to your pets as you and ingestion of bones can be dangerous.
– Try not to let well meaning family and friends too many treats – sudden diet changes and lots of rich foods can result in digestive upsets. A new toy is a much better idea.
– Finally, as much as we all love the opportunity to spend time with friends and family, not all pets are as sociable – please remember to give sensitive or worried pets a safe place to retreat to when it all gets a bit much
We hope you enjoy the Festive Season, all of us here at Corner House would like to wish you all a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year.
