Keep pets safe during holiday celebrations

by The 100 Companies

The holiday season can be stressful, and even dangerous, for pets, but here are several ways to avoid the most likely hazards:

• Some plants are toxic to dogs or cats. Keep poinsettias, holly, mistletoe, lilies, daffodils and amaryllis out of reach to pets who might try to bite or chew them.

• Keep decorations, wrapping paper, tinsel and metal hooks that may become choking hazards out of reach.
