So we’re just a week away from family & friends all gathering to share stories, enjoy that family traditional meal, and of course, so are the animals and I’m not talking about the cousins hahaha
I wanted to throw out a few tips to help keep your fur babies safe during the holidays.
1. Dangerous foods
For the most part, sticking to your pet’s normal food and treats is best for their digestion, though the occasional table scrap can be harmless. But there are some Thanksgiving foods that should be absolutely off-limits for the cats and dogs in the house.
2. Kitchen safety
Be cautious about where your pets are roaming throughout the cooking process. If you allow them in the kitchen, keep them away from the hot oven door and stovetop.
Decorating the table with holiday-themed items makes for a great photo op. However, be careful leaving pets unattended near potentially dangerous decor, like candles! A low hanging tablecloth can attract your pet and provide access to the decorations and food, a potential dinner party disaster.
The same tip goes for trash cans. Keep them closed and, if possible, take them outside when they are full. No one wants their perfect pup digging through the trash bag.
So keep these easy steps in the back of your mind and enjoy the holidays with your family, Friends, and Furbabies
