Look for your life long friend at the Lewis Clark Animal Shelter
In addition to fragile ornaments, tinsel that twist intestines if eaten and candles pets can knock over, here are a few more tips for your holiday.
Gifts with food, dog treats, or dog toys, must be kept out of reach. Pets can smell food and will unwrap and eat contents.
Snow Globes contain ethylene glycol, a highly toxic substance. If cracked or broken, the sweet smell will entice a pet to lick it up.
Medication: Remind holiday visitors that children & pets are curious and will think pills are candy. Keep medications locked up.
Salt, ice melt, homemade play dough, and salt-dough ornaments can all be a tempting salty treat for pets and cause life-threatening imbalances in the electrolytes.
Please contact your veterinarian for treatment..
