The holidays are coming!

While we are busy with the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holiday season, there are a few things we need to take note of in our homes.  There are several holiday hazards that are of easy access for our pets.  Please take a few moments to read further, to safeguard your best friend!

It is very easy for us to “treat” our pets to a meal, snack, or leftovers that could actually be harmful.  Helpings – large or small – of turkey, gravy, the fixings, poultry skin, and excess fat are too much for their system.  Animals are highly responsive to dietary changes, so it they are given something like our holiday meal, the pancreas goes into overproduction.  This causes gastrointestinal upset or even pancreatitis.
