Keep your home safe for your pet this holiday season with the following holiday party and decorating tips:
Nicotine can be fatal to pets. If partygoers smoke or use tobacco and you don’t, your pets may be curious about the cigarettes or cigars. Be sure to provide ashtrays that can be placed out of pets’ reach. If ingested, tobacco products cause serious gastrointestinal symptoms, cardiac arrest or death.
Poisonous flowers, mistletoe and holly berries can cause serious stomach upset in your pets. Contrary to popular belief, poinsettias, though somewhat toxic, are only mildly upsetting to dogs and cats. Most dangerous are lilies, which often are found in holiday floral arrangements. The seven most popular types of lilies have been reported to cause kidney failure in cats.
Small ornaments, especially balls and bells, are attractive to pets — but deadly if consumed. If they break, they can cause cuts to your pet’s mouth, throat and/or paws!
