Great Holiday Tips

1. Did you know holly, mistletoe, and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs or cats? Although poinsettias will only cause mild irritation, mistletoe and holly are much more toxic. If you normally use these plants to decorate your home, they should be kept in an area your pet cannot reach.
2. Burning candles should be placed on high shelves or mantels, out of reach of your dog’s wagging tail or curious nose. Keep in mind that cats love to climb were they are not supposed to! Homes with fireplaces should use screens to avoid accidental burns.
3. When gift wrapping, be sure to keep your pet away. Wrapping paper, string, plastic, or cloth could cause intestinal blockages. Scissors are another hazard, and they should be kept off floors or low tables
