Not everyone loves the holidays! :(

The holidays can be a stressful time for our pets ...when we're rushing around and we're stressed, they sense it and they can get anxious.  They can get particularly anxious if they think we are leaving them (you know how they can get when they see our suitcases coming out, right?)

Some tips to help keep our pets happy and healthy during the holidays:

Try to keep things as routine as possible - perhaps keep them to a room in the house they are comfortable in if guests come - so they are not unnecessarily stressed (particularly if they are not used to children.

Keeping them safe should also be a priority at this time of the year as this is a time when doors are often left open by accident during festivities.  Be sure they are safely behind locked doors when everyone is opening and closing doors and coming and going.  And be sure their collars and tags are up to date just in case they do get out.

Be sure no guests feed your pet people-food ... causing unexpected trips to the vet at
strange times of the day or night!   And be sure to make reservations early for your pet sitter or boarding facility if you plan to travel to avoid any disappointments.

And in the spirit of giving ... please don't forget the many animals who find themselves in shelters this Holiday Season ... with no one to love them ... Try to find time to volunteer at your local shelter for a couple of hours to brighten the day of a shelter animal and the shelter staff will appreciate it greatly too! :)
