They're lovely dogs. Thank you very much for the visit. Why I don't decorate for the holidays? Two large active golden retrievers. Thanks for spreading the word on this important topic! Thank you, Maren Morgan M-T. Christmas is a special time of year for my dogs and cats, and the birds enjoy it too. A timely reminder - thanks! I like hearing about all the walks you take on holidays. I do that, too.
My cats do like climbing over and on to things, but they've never yet toppled the Christmas tree down! Good luck with your new cat this Christmas, Becky. Thanks for the comment. Enjoyable time for all. My dog loves Christmas also and is fascinated by the tree. The last time I had a cat at Christmas, he climbed the tree and it toppled over. Now we have a young cat and I am wondering if she will be climbing the tree.

Celebrating Holidays With Dogs My dogs love taking part in holidays and celebrations such as Christmas. Pet-Safe Christmas Tree Decorations It's important that every decoration and gift on a tree is pet safe, especially if the pets have access to the decorations during the night when their family is asleep. Other safety points to consider include the following: Avoid angel hair, which is made of glass fibre that can cut a dog's digestive tract. Avoid glass ornaments, which may break into sharp pieces if they fall to the ground.
Place any breakable ornaments on high branches where they can't be hit by a dog's wagging tail. Don't place edible decorations on the tree. Investigate the safety of the ingredients in any fake snow that is placed on the tree. Use safe tree lights and be careful with the placement of electrical wires.
Don't place lights on the lowest branches of the trees. Consider the placement of the tree in case a curious pet jumps on it and knocks it down. Intestinal Obstruction Intestinal obstruction can be a very serious condition in dogs and may even be life threatening. Dog-Safe Table Decorations Colourful plant displays can look lovely on a table or other surface at Christmas. Poisonous Christmas Plants Some plants that are traditionally brought into a home at Christmastime can be toxic or irritating for pets.
Safe Food Storage I've got into the habit of putting all food in the refrigerator, a cupboard, or somewhere else out of my dogs' reach whenever I bring it into my home. How Dangerous Is Chocolate for Dogs? Human Food and Pets For many pet owners, a dog is a family member. Dangers of Xylitol for Pets Xylitol is another dangerous substance for pets.

Macadamia Nuts Ingestion of macadamia nuts can cause very unpleasant problems in dogs, although the nuts generally aren't deadly. Raisins Raisins and grapes should be kept away from dogs, since the fruit can cause acute kidney failure. Onion, Chives, and Garlic Onion, chives, and garlic can damage the red blood cells of dogs. Dangerous Holiday Foods for Pets. Additional Foods to Avoid Dairy products and yeast doughs are potentially harmful for dogs.
Dog Safety on Christmas Day We don't place gifts under the tree until Christmas morning so that they aren't left unguarded. Christmas Dinner Our dogs are given their own small plates of Christmas dinner with no stuffing, sauce, or dessert. Pet Emergencies It's helpful for a pet owner to know some first aid in case problems arise during a celebration or at any other time.
An Enjoyable Holiday With the Family Pets There may seem to be a lot to think about when considering dog safety during special holidays and festivals. Questions must be on-topic, written with proper grammar usage, and understandable to a wide audience. I hope that your daughter enjoys this hub, Eiddwen! Thanks for another kind comment.
