Celebrate this festive season without mishaps!

The December holiday is a joyous time – but it is also stressful. Celebrating Christmas comes with a lot of organising to ensure that everything goes as planned. The last thing you need is an emergency to spoil the cheerful atmosphere. You are probably concerned about making your guests as comfortable as possible, and it’s easy to forget that you will also need to keep a close eye on your pets. Don’t worry, Animaltalk has you covered.

[subhead] 9 tips to keep your pets safe over Christmas

  1. It’s great fun for children to meet new pets, but make sure they are always supervised to prevent accidents.
  2. Keep an eye out for unattended alcoholic drinks and cigarettes – these things are poisonous for your pets and it will be a disaster if they decide to join the party.
  3. Inform all your guests that they should not give your pets treats from the table, as many human foods are dangerous for them (see strip).
  4. If you are putting tinsel on your Christmas tree, make sure you hang it out of your pets’ reach, as ingesting it could block their intestines.
  5. Be careful of putting lights on your Christmas tree. Your pets could get tangled up in them – or get shocked by biting through the cord.
