Pet Safety Guide For The Holidays
While holidays are the perfect excuse to binge on the most drool worthy food, it’s important to keep in mind that the same food could be dangerous for pets. This holiday season, share the joy, but not the food!
Here’s a list of food to avoid sharing with your pets, even though they’re giving you the puppy dog eyes:
Holiday festivities often entail large gatherings, and as a result, loud noises. Pets can get anxious during times of merriment due to these loud noises, especially so, if they’re averse to meeting new people and are uncomfortable around them.
To tackle these issues during the holiday season, make sure you have a quiet room for your pet to feel safe in. This becomes especially important if it’s New Year’s Eve and your pet gets scared from the sound of fireworks and loud music. During such times, it’s also recommended to make sure that your pet is microchipped and their information is updated to prevent any mishaps.
If your pet is travelling with you for the holidays, then there are a host of things you need to be prepared with beforehand. The first thing that you need to do is check with your vet if it’s even safe to have your pet travel with you. Give them information on the weather conditions and your mode of travel along with any other relevant details.
For instance, some short-nosed dogs are at high-risk when traveling by air.
It is also important to pack all of your pet’s essentials, including their treats, medicines and their favorite toy to make them feel secure and comfortable.
