Linda Ryder, D.V.M.

We all tend to indulge a bit during the holiday season, but it’s important to keep an eye on your pets as temptations prevail! The integrative vet, Dr. Carol Osborne, has a few important suggestions worth noting:

1. Pet-proof your Christmas tree. Be sure it is securely anchored, and hang only pet safe ornaments on the bottom half of the tree--in reach of their precious paws. Also, place netting around the tree stand to prevent your four-legged family members from drinking the water. If they start eating the pine needles, spray the tree with a red pepper and water solution to discourage needle-eaters right away.
2. Keep pets away from the following common holiday items: alcohol, grapes, yeast/dough, raisins, macadamia nuts, coffee grounds, onions, chives, garlic, small bones, and chocolates.
3. Reward good behavior with “good” holidays treats like pumpkin, cranberries, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and green beans.

Our clinic sincerely wishes everyone a safe and joy-filled holiday season and the very happiest New Year!
