Holiday decorations are a staple of the winter season. Whether it be dangling ornaments, tinsel and garlands or decorative plant life, it is important to make sure your pets are not overly interested in the decorations.
Ribbons and tinsel are especially attractive and hazardous to cats. Keep an eye on electrical cords and tree lights to insure puppies and kittens don’t chew on them. It is also wise to make sure that you place your most delicate ornaments at the top of the tree so that your pets cannot knock them off the tree and accidentally break them.
Mistletoe and holly can cause vomiting and lilies are often deadly to cats. Poinsettias, despite their reputation, are not deadly but can cause some an upset stomach. If you have more questions regarding potential hazards to your pet please check out: http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com
