Joy to the world, the Lord has come!Let earth receive her King; Let every heart prepare Him room, And Heaven and nature sing…
See we have started humming carols in advance…we are also smelling muffins and cakes, tapping our foot and dressing it all in red…that’s not all, we have something for our pooches too. All our celebrations are incomplete without our canine companions. So here D&P brings some tips to make this Christmas safer and merrier for our furry-friends, as always, like we celebrate responsible-pet-parenting all through the year… Here’s wishing you all happy pet parenting.
Red alert…for greens
Christmas is not all about red and white, there’s lot of green as well. Our pooches are quite excited about all decked up Christmas tree and other plants. The common yuletide plants such as poinsettias, mistletoe, ivy and holly berries are highly harmful to our four-legged champs, if they eat or swallow it… now you understand why we call red alert for greens…better take care.
Ribbons, ornaments, candles, toys… it’s twinkling everywhere… it catches our pet fancy at once. The wrapping paper looks like good fun toy for them, but it can cause choking, upset stomach or more serious problems…God forbid.
We celebrate…we dance, so do our canines. We can watch out for those loose ends of electric wires and plugs, but our pooches cannot. So tie up all loose electrical cords of lights and keep them concealed.
Fun with food…beware
Festivity is incomplete without fun ‘n’ frolic, but for foody furry friends, precautions are always better than cure. Do not give them leftovers and make sure they are not munching on excessive chocolates and sweets, given by kids, friends or family to express extra love and care.
Freshen up… trees not doggies
The preservatives we use to keep our live decoration plantation fresh can be deadly for our pets…so always cover the tree bases with foil. Spray some non-appealing substances like bitter apple, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus etc in the water basin and also on the lower branches of the tree.
