[ARCHIVED] Holiday Animal Safety Tips

Santa with pets

Tis the season for Holliday festivities and putting out a lot of different decorations to enhance the spirit of the season. The problem is some of these decorations can be harmful to our four legged family members.

So we at draper animal services ask you to be cautious when decorating your home for the holidays.

Here are a few tips:

Breakable hanging bulbs are very tempting to playful cat passing by the tree (he can't help swatting it as he walks by) and they can be very fragile.

The round ornaments are very exciting to both dogs and cats (they think they are balls for them) they break very easy and can hurt their mouths and paws.

The candy decorations should be kept out of reach from the pets, sugar is toxic to them and if it they eat them it will make them very sick and can be life threatening.

And let’s not forget the Christmas tree, Both dogs and cats think it is really thoughtful of us to bring a tree in the home for them to climb, chew, knock over and even urinate on it as they do outside, so keep a close eye on your tree and maybe even put in a area where your pet is not allowed.

Watch out for the extra electrical cords they can cause a "HAIR RAISING "experience if chewed on.

As always please limit the treats and people food and remember our pets get very excited when company come to visit we need to make sure they get plenty of R and R and have a safe quite place just for them.

Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday season.
