- Do not feed any 4 legged pet grapes pealed or not
- Do not feed a pet any citrus fruit whether you take the membrane off or not
- Do not let the eat onions or chocolate as both can be deadly to our beloved pets
- Do not let the dog in the room when decorating your Yule tree as they may try to chase and bite the lights as you put them up, eat garland or tinsels both of these usually get caught in the intestines and have to be surgically removed.
- Do not leave a Poinsettia plant where a human child or any pets can reach it as both the leaves and the little white balls are very poison.
- While unwrapping gifts again make sure all pets are safely out of the room as cats will stalk and try to eat the paper and even some of they toys, this goes for dogs also but they will also try to eat those pesky plastic or wire things that hold a toy in place in it’s box.
- If you are going to get someone a puppy, kitten, or another type of mammal for Yule I suggest you get it a couple of days after the extended family has left, all garbage from presents and food are safely in the trash bin outside. A new animal is a lot of work and they can be scared easily and it doesn’t need to many different people outside of the nuclear family handling it for a few weeks. The reason for not getting the new pet a head of all the commotion of celebrating Yule is the animal may get forgotten or accidentally injured while their humans celebrate.
