Keeping Your Dog Safe During the Christmas Holidays

Keeping Your Dog Safe

from Potential Christmastime Hazards

The best time of the year, Christmas, is here and while you are buying the Christmas tree, decorating your house, putting up those blinking lights, wrapping up gifts for friends and family, and cooking everyone’s favorite dishes, one member of your family might be getting overwhelmed. Besides decorations around the house, frequent visitors and music can also cause distress to your furry friend. Keeping your dog safe during the Christmas festivities is your responsibility.

Being a pet parent, you must already know that chocolate is quite toxic for dogs and since it is a popular Christmas gift, you must make sure that it is not accessible to your dog, as well as several other things like dough that you are planning to bake for the day. It is common for families to have alcohol during the festivities and since it is not suitable for dogs, please make sure that none of your guests or family member accidentally or deliberately shares it with your dog. It is never funny to give alcohol to a dog, as even a low quantity of alcohol can cause damage to the liver and kidney, while hard liquor might kill a small dog. If you are planning to drink heavily, it is recommended to keep your dog away in another room.
