Hi, gang! After a very much needed blogging break, I’m back to serve to you my weekly post. Since we’re near Christmas, I decided to talk about pet safety during the holidays. I hope you’ll enjoy it! Happy holidays!
The holiday season can be a very busy time, and we don’t always think about the fact that our pets can be stressed or at risk during that time. Pets are creatures of habit, and as you gear up for the holidays, it’s important to keep your pet’s eating and sleeping routine as normal as possible.
Don’t forget your pets during the holidays
Naturally, pet parents want to include their furbabies in the holidays festivities. But with all the things that we have to do this holiday season, buying and wrapping gifts, cooking, cleaning and prepping the house for guests, parties galore, can leave you little time to think about your furry friends’ safety.
But what can hurt your pets this holiday season?
However, many hazards can make your pets in danger during the holidays. Did you know that things like Christmas decorations and some of your favorite holidays foods can be harmful to your furchildren? Even the traditional poinsettia, holly or mistletoe, are not as harmless as you would think.
That’s why when I found this great infographic, created by PetCareRx, I thought it would make the perfect guideline that could help pet parents keep their four-legged friends safe and healthy this holiday season.
