Use Natural Pet Products Or Herbal Tinctures To Keep Pets Safe Over The Holidays

Author : Stephen Daniels

In addition to happiness and cheer, the holiday season may bring a number of household dangers to a family cat or dog. When you go shopping for all the presents and goodies for loved ones, be sure you include a few natural pet products like treats, so that your pets don't feel endangered by all the commotion of the season. Fido and Fluffy will probably be curious about changes in the house - like decorations and present packages. It may not be a bad idea to keep some herbal tinctures readily available in the event of injuries or accidents. Paying special attention to your four-legged family members will help them stay safe and healthy.

Like children, your dog or cat will be curious about new sounds, smells and sights, so pet-proofing your house is just as important as child-proofing. Hanging ornaments, decorative plants, snack dishes, tinsel and other items should be kept out of reach. This is especially important when it comes to food.

It's crucial to be aware of what's going in your cat or dog's mouth, as potential health problems can range from a queasy stomach to something far more serious. Tell dinner guests not to feed Rover from the table, especially foods such as poultry, steak or ham bones that can splinter and lodge in the throat, stomach or intestinal tract. Studies have also shown that ingestion of onions and garlic may have serious medical side effects for animals.

Foods like chocolate, grapes, raisins and bread dough, as well as nuts like walnuts and macadamias, are among those that can cause illness or death. Keep a close eye on what foods are in reach, and stay updated on new items that may have been added to the list of potentially dangerous foods since you last checked. You'll probably be surprised at how many common human foods are potentially fatal for your precious pets. Remind your guests that they should only offer pets the treats you provide.

Along with food, house guests can also bring dangers into your home in the form of medications, exotic gift plants, possibly hazardous toys, or bags of candy that may be left in a guest room unattended - and are irresistible to a dog or cat. Be sure to keep guest-room doors closed or place potentially harmful gifts well out of your pets' reach.

Taking preventative measures prior to the holiday season can benefit pets by making them strong and healthy; feeding them the best quality pet food made of natural ingredients is an excellent place to start. Also, supplementing their diet with herbal tinctures to strengthen both their immune and digestive systems provides a good foundation for staying safe, healthy and happy throughout the holidays.
