The holiday season is one of the most stressful times of the year: decorating, hosting parties and maybe even traveling. Multitasking can be difficult. It is even more difficult when your pet’s health is concerned. It is important that you keep your furry family members safe during this holiday season. Here are just a few tips to ensure your pets have a happy holiday.
Food: You’re probably going to be busy hosting or talking with friends and family. It’s hard to juggle all that and keep an eye out on your pets. Be sure you keep your human food away from your pets. There are numbers of food that can harm your pets, including chocolate and Christmas candy. If you want to feed them leftovers from your holiday dinner, please make sure that what you’re feeding them won’t be hazardous to them. One way to be sure is to feed them 100% natural pet treats such as the Turkey Tendon or Tuna Steak.
Travel: If you will be traveling with your pets for the holidays, try bringing their beds with you so they are more relaxed with their new surroundings. The Pet Stroller, All Terrain Pet Jogger, Breeze Pet Jogger and 5-in-1 Pet Carrier were designed to make traveling with your pets a smooth ride. However, if the 5-in-1 Pet Carrier will be your newest and handiest travel companion. It allows you to carry it as a backpack, roll your pet around with its luggage feature, attach it to your luggage, attach it to your car seat, and attach it to the 5-in-1 Pet Stroller Frame made solely for this pet carrier. It’s also completely collapsible for easy storage.
Guests: Pets can become confused, overexcited, or even frightened by holiday guests. Be sure that your pets have a safe haven to escape to if the festivities become too much for them and pet toys to distract them. The Bedside Lounge is the perfect den for your pets. With three zippered doors and large mesh windows, you’ll have the option of watching your pets play or relax.
Avoid Holiday Plants: Hollies, mistletoes and poinsettias are poisonous to your pets if accidentally ingested. Avoid having them around the house or place them out of your pets reach. Your safest bet would be to stick with artificial plants instead.
Lights and Candles: Your holiday lights and candles should be featured in a place where your pets can’t reach them. Whether it’s the swinging of a tail and pushed off with their paws, lights and candles may become a potential fire hazard and burns if not placed appropriately. Try using flameless LED candles instead.
Noisemakers: Fireworks, horns, bells and whistles can be extremely frightening to your pets sensitive ears. Be sure your furry friends have a quiet room to go to if the noise becomes too much for them.
Tinsel: Some pets seem to find shiny tinsel especially appealing. If ingested, it may cause serious harm to your pets. So make sure your decorations are placed at a height they won’t be able to reach.
