Some helpful tips for this holiday season

1. Before a family gathering take your dog out for a long walk or high energy activity so your dog can burn off energy and be more relaxed around guests.

2. Communicate with guests to please not share food with your pets. Keep an eye on your pets or have them stay in a designated area in your house while drinks, appetizers, and dinner are being served.

3. If you are not sure what the ingredients are in something do not feed it to your pet.

4. Small amounts are best, don’t over do it on treats.

We hope you have a safe holiday season with your furry best friend. If you do come across an emergency be sure to get in touch with your vet and know your vet’s holiday hours.
