It’s that time of year when you decorate the house in baubles and bright things. It’s also the time of year for your pet to get in to trouble with some of those items. I’m sharing some tips to keep your furry family members safe and to make sure everyone enjoys the decorations, food and festivities.

  • Make sure your tree is stable. This will help if curious pets decide to investigate.
  • Keep breakable ornaments away from the bottom of the tree.
  • Holly, poinsettias and mistletoe are poisonous. Best to use the fake ones.
  • Keep tinsel out of the reach of cats. They often like to nibble it and it can clog up their digestive tracts.
  • Be careful to keep burning candles out of the reach of tails and noses.
  • If holiday gatherings stress your pet, keep them in a separate safe place.
  • Make sure your guests know to watch their entry and exits to keep your pets in the house.
  • During fireworks, make sure your nervous pet is in a safe spot. Provide them with comforting items if they are alone.
  • Keep food items that pets should not have out of reach, including turkey bones, alcohol and chocolate.
