View Larger Image Christmas Safety Tips It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Here are a few helpful hints for pet-proofing your holiday decorations and keeping your furry friends safe this holiday season. Keep any exposed electric cords from holiday lights out of reach from your pet. This helps prevent your pets from chewing on them, which can cause electrical shock.Place burning candles out of your pet’s way to protect your pet from knocking them over and creating a fire hazard. Or, consider using flameless candles.Cover your tree’s water receptacle or hide the basin underneath the tree skirt. Stagnant tree water can contain dangerous bacteria that can harm pets if ingested.Avoid decorating with shiny tinsel, which is attractive to curious pets and if swallowed, cause serious intestinal blockage.Be conscientious of decorating with seasonal plants such as mistletoe, holly, and poinsettias which can cause your pet to get sick if ingested.
