The holiday season is a time of giving thanks and spending time with friends, family and most importantly our beloved dogs. ZenCrate has taken it upon ourselves to collect a handful of helpful tips to keep your four-legged loved ones safe during the hustle and bustle.
Creating a Safe-Haven
When planning your holiday parties, keep in mind your pets need a place to relax and destress from all the excitement. Create a safe-haven filled with a few toys, water, and a comfortable place for your pets to retreat to if they are feeling overwhelmed.
No Sneaking Table Food
As tempting as it may be to treat your pets to a few table scraps, it’s best to avoid that due to the digestive problems caused from human food. As much we may find it harmless, if every person who attends your party slips a piece of food to your pet, it could cause upset stomach and a very untimely veterinary bill.
Dangerous Holiday Plants
Mistletoe, holly, and poinsettia plants are extremely poisonous when ingested and can cause your furry friends severe nausea and even diarrhea. The good thing is that there are plenty great of artificial plants made from silk or plastic to choose from!
From tinsel, to tree ornaments it’s important for these holiday essentials to be kept high and out of reach from your pets. Tinsel and broken ornaments can cause potentially cause intestinal blockage.
Here at ZenCrate, we strive to create and ensure our pets are as safe and relaxed during the busy holiday time as possible. We hope you and your furry ones have a wonderful and safe holiday season filled with lots of holiday cheer and treats!
