Pets are a part of the family and when they become ill or injured it is upsetting and traumatic for pet owners. To keep your pets safe during the holiday season and to avoid a trip to the veterinarian or worse, follow these simple tips:
• Many holiday plants can lead to health problems in pets. Among the plants to keep out of reach are holly, mistletoe, poinsettias and lilies.
Christmas trees and decorations add to the holiday spirit, yet, pose the risk of fire and injury to many, especially children.
Holiday plants such as mistletoe, holly, lilies and daffodils may enliven a room but they are poisonous to humans and pets. When displaying these types of plants, place them in locations that can be admired from a distance by all, yet, unattainable to children and pets.
