The holiday season in 2020 may look very different than holidays in the past. While all that is true, this still remains the season of giving and do not forget your furry best friend! This time of year you may notice your dog or cat acting strange. Here are some tips for you to consider to make sure your pets remain healthy and happy during the season of giving:
- Here's a list of foods to avoid feeding your pet during the holiday season
- Avoid placing candy on the coffee table or end tables where dogs can get them and be sure to put away the packages back in the cupboard after you filled the bowl.
- If your dog gets a bit hyper you may want to seek some homeopathic remedies, which can lessen the stress.
- Another common practice during stressful times is to feed your pet less food, therefore, giving his system less work while his level of awareness is heightened.
- The amount of treats you’ll be rewarding him for being so good sometimes can add up to a meals worth of food, so let’s not overfeed. Dog tricks are great but after 63 times of the same trick I think your pets’ stomach may be a bit sore.
- Be sure to clean up thuroughly after opening gifts. If your gifts are wrapped, come with small parts, or include packing peanuts, be sure to gather them all before moving on. The last thing you want is for your pet to eat one of them!
