Dangers to Your Pets During the Christmas Holidays

December 2, 2008

Ah, yes, it's definitely the most wonderful time of the year! Have you bought your favorite pooch's present yet? There are less than 30 shopping days until Christmas. And with Christmas just around the corner, the ASPCA has compiled a list of the most common holiday hazards to your pets:

- Christmas tree water, which may contain fertilizers and bacteria that can upset the stomach if ingested

- Electrical cords

- Ribbons or tinsel, which can become lodged in the intestines and cause intestinal obstruction—this most often occurs with kittens

- Batteries

- Glass ornaments

- Of course, there are usually a lot of delicious goodies floating around during the holidays, too—be sure to keep human treats inaccessible to your pets.

OK, now that you have taken all precautions to keep your furry loved-ones safe this Christmas, you have more time to focus on more fun things.
