With the holiday season comes more activity both in your home and outside of it. This excess in people, visitors, and owner absences can put stress on a dog or cat. The best way to combat this is to minimize time alone for your pet, this can mean taking turns for shopping trips or even getting a friend or family member to look in on and stay with your pet. When having new people visit your home, make sure your pet gets to know them on their own terms. Don’t force an interaction, your dog or cat will let strangers know when they’re ready to mingle. If your pet simply can’t handle all the added noise, make sure to set up a room with his or her toys and a comfy sleeping area.

Another big part of the holidays are trees and decorations. If you’re putting up a Christmas tree, make sure it’s always steady and not prone to tipping. Dogs and cats alike are very curious when it comes to new things in their environment and often test the boundaries. Safe Holiday PetHaving your tree secured with keep your pet safe. Skip the tinsel.
