Holiday Safety tips
The holiday season is full of food and fun, but some of the things that we enjoy during this time of year can be harmful for our pets.
The following information has been pulled directly from the American Veterinary Medical Association's website. These helpful tips will help ensure that you're prepared for the holidays with your pet.
Keep people food away from pets. If you want to share holiday treats with your pets, make or buy treats formulated just for them. The following people foods are especially hazardous for pets:
Greenery, lights and Christmas trees can make the holidays festive, but they also pose risky temptations for our pets.
Visitors can upset pets, as can the noise and excitement of holiday parties. Even pets that aren’t normally shy may become nervous in the hubbub that can accompany a holiday gathering. The following tips will reduce emotional stress on your pet and protect your guests from possible injury.
Whether you take your pets with you or leave them behind, take these precautions to safeguard them whenever you’re traveling.

I loved that you mentioned your pet should always be retained and never left alone no matter the weather. My husband and I are thinking about adopting a dog, and we are looking for advice about how to take care of him. I will let him know about your recommendations to take care of our new pet properly.

You made a good point when you shared that it is great to find a boarding facility if you are planning to go on a vacation. My friend just mentioned the other day that she is thinking of going on a vacation next month and she needs someone to look after her dog. I will advise her to look for a boarding facility that can help take care of it.

That makes sense that you want to pack the medical records for boarding. We are leaving for Italy for a couple of weeks and need to board our dog. We'll have to make sure her records are up-to-date.

You make a great point about making sure you restrain your animal when traveling. My cat and I need to go to Texas. I'll have to make sure that he has his own carrier for safety.
