Keep pets safe during holiday celebrations

The holiday season can be stressful, and even dangerous, for pets, but there are ways to avoid the most likely hazards.

• Some plants are toxic to dogs or cats. Keep poinsettias, holly, mistletoe, lilies, daffodils and amaryllis out of reach to pets who might try to bite or chew them.

• Avoid ER visits by sharing with your guests that you don’t give your fur babies people food. Chocolate, grapes, and other seemingly harmless treats will cause illness in pets. 

• Keep decorations, wrapping paper, tinsel and metal hooks that may become choking hazards out of reach.
