Here are some suggestions to keep your dogs healthy throughout the holidays.
The Humane Society of Utah has compiled a list of guidelines to keep your dogs healthy throughout the Christmas season.
The following foods can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and possibly liver failure:
Bones, skin, turkey fat, ham, and gravy from a cooked bird
Stuffing with onions, garlic, grapes, and raisins, as well as other meals
Desserts with chocolate or xylitol, in particular.
Food and rubbish should be kept out of reach. Table leftovers may be enticing to your pet and may be harmful.
Poinsettias, Holly and Mistletoe, Lilies and Daffodils, and Amaryllis are among the plants that might be toxic to your pets.
It's also a good idea to keep decorations in mind. The eye-catching forms and colors may lead you to believe they are edible, but they may be deadly if shattered.
Vaccinate any new kittens or puppies you bring into your home to keep them safe.
Make sure there is always fresh water available to drink. When dogs are agitated, they pant more, so they may require extra water during a hectic holiday season.
Allow your pet to have access to a quiet area away from the people. It will let your pet to go out and visit whenever they like and will make them feel more at ease.
Last but not least, remember to treat them! Consider getting them a reward dispenser, a new toy, or setting up a separate area for them to watch dog/cat-friendly YouTube videos.
They are, after all, members of the family. So remain safe and have a wonderful time with your loved ones throughout the holidays.
