Holiday Pet Dangers
  
The holidays can be stressful for the whole family, including our pets.  So what can you do to make sure your pets are safe this time of year?

Top Holiday Dangers

1. Trash 
Please make sure your garbage cans are not overflowing and within reach of your pets. During this busy time of year, we and our guests may not be as aware of this danger as during other times of the year.  
 
2. Unsafe foods
Don't feed your pets fatty treats, like gravy, or too much turkey or ham.  Other foods like onions and garlic can be very damaging.  And chocolates are a no-no.  Give your pets a safe treat, like a bit of turkey (without bones, of course), maybe a carrot, or a dog biscuit.  Cooked bones are very dangerous regardless of whether they come from poultry, pork, beef, or any other meat. 
 
3. Decorations
Be careful with holiday decorations and wrapping paper ribbon.  Cats love tinsel and ribbon and are likely to swallow them, causing intestinal blockages.  It may even require surgery.  Holiday lights are also a temptation for pets, so check your extension cords frequently for any sign of bite marks, frayed wires, or short circuits.
 
4.  Holiday plants
Are you planning to have holiday plants in your home?  Some are safe for pets, but others should be kept out of their reach.   Poinsettia plants are usually not deadly, but if ingested may cause nausea and vomiting.  Holly and mistletoe and their berries can have more toxicity to pets than poinsettias and can cause abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea.  Lily and daffodil plants and Amaryllis can be toxic to pets.  If you have these plants in your home, make sure to place them in areas where pets cannot get to them.  But if your pet does ingest parts of these plants, call your veterinarian immediately. 
 
Lets keep the holidays safe for us AND our pets!
  
 
The Holidays Can Be Stressful
  
The hustle and bustle of the holidays can be stressful for all of us, including our pets. You might consider putting your pets in an area of the house away from strangers or holiday company.  Many of our clients tell us that their pet has very strong anxiety this time of year.  One of the products we recommend is ProQuiet that can help keep them calm.  ProQuiet tablets can calm nervous and overanxious pets gently, safely, and effectively.  Let us know if ProQuiet might be a solution to your pet's anxiety.
  
 
Giving A Pet As A Holiday Gift?
  
Are you thinking about giving a pet to a friend or relative?  On the surface, it may seem like a perfect holiday gift.  However, here are some things to consider:

You should only give a pet as a gift to people that have expressed an interest in owning one.  It is best to talk to them to make sure they have the sustained ability and interest in caring for the pet.  Giving a pet gift certificate may be a good option because it allows the gift receiver to become engaged in the process of picking out the pet after the busy holidays are over.  Make sure the pet will be placed in a permanent home and that you consider the future expenses that the new owner will incur.  Open communication between a pet giver and receiver might not be as much of a surprise, but it is the preferred way to ensure a lasting relationship between the receiver and the new pet.

  
 
Here Are Two Great Gifts
  
Full Circle Veterinary Care has great gifts for the Holidays.

Come check out our table with Awesome Gifts Under $15.00.  

  
Here are a couple of popular gifts.

"Pet Odor Exterminator Candles" specifically meant for pet odors.  We currently have holiday scents in stock, and they make great gifts.  They're also the candles that burn at the front desk, and a lot of people mention that they smell really good in the clinic when they come in. 




Not a pet treat, but a human treat! Have you tried our exciting new product - Black Dog Coffee Traders Coffee? This one pictured is our signature Full Circle Veterinary Blend. Other blends have pictures of various dog breeds. Black Dog Coffee Traders donates 5% of all profits to the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation for cancer research. Help support that great cause and treat yourself to some great coffee. $10 per bag right here at Full Circle. 

 
Merry Christmas
  
The Full Circle Veterinary Care Staff wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
