Please don't use tinsel or angel hair on your trees or use for other decorations. Don't use ribbons or sting to wrap packages because cats and dogs are attracted to eating them and this can cause intestinal blockages.
Keep burning candles, other than flameless, and potpourri pots up high and out of the reach of your pets to avoid possible burn hazards or a fire if they are knocked down.
Chocolate, alcohol, rich fatty foods, uncooked dough, fruits, nuts, and other known toxins like onions, garlic, etc. should be kept out of your pet's reach during the holiday season. Keep your countertops clean and your trash securely locked to avoid their inquisitive searching. Feed your pets pet food before any parties or gatherings so they are less likely to beg or steal food from your guests. Inform all friends and family that your pet's are not to be fed any food treats.
Most of all use common sense for the safety of your beloved furry friends. Happy Holidays!

As always if you are not sure about possible hazards for your pets, always practice safety first, and when in doubt ask.
