Paws and Effect

Congrats, Irene!

  Play It Safe - For Pets' Sake!



Ensure that the holidays don't turn into the 'yowl-i-days' for your pets by following these safety tips:
  • Opt for battery-operated candles instead of lit candles that can cause burns to cats or dogs.
  • Replace tinsel on the Christmas tree with nontoxic baby's breath to avoid accidental ingesting by cats or dogs.
  • Obtain a pet first aid kit within reach and enroll in a pet first-aid class taught by a local chapter of the American Red Cross. Include a Trimline Veterinary Recovery Collar in this kit. 
  • Anchor your Christmas tree to the wall or ceiling with fishing line to keep it from being toppled by a tree-climbing cat or energetic dog.  
  • Discourage chewing by spraying holiday lights and electric cords with Bitter Apple, a taste not appealing to dogs or cats.
  • Substitute poinsettias, holly and mistletoe with silk versions to avoid your pets from nibbling and ingesting these dangerous plants.
  • Don't fall prey to begging eyes by giving turkey bones, gravy or other rich foods to your pets. These foods can lead to choking, stomach upset or pancreatitis.
  • Set up a room in your house for your pets to hang out while you host a holiday party.  Provide healthy treats, water, comfortable bedding, and a keep-busy toy plus turn on the radio to offset the party sounds.
