Happy Holidays to Everyone!!
We hope plenty of cheer and goodness fills your homes this season. Catnip and Greenies to all the good cats and dogs!
But don’t forget that there are hazards for pets that may also fill our homes during the holidays. Christmas trees and their fragile or edible ornaments, tinsel, and treated water can be enticing but may cause an intestinal blockage or even be toxic. Mistletoe, poinsettias, and other plants can be toxic as well.
New reports are out from the FDA that some “bone treats” have caused illness in dogs, and even death. These bones have been processed by drying or baking, and when consumed they can result in cuts to the mouth, choking, digestive tract obstruction, vomiting, and diarrhea.
The doctors at Alameda Pet Hospital do not give bones to their own dogs for a reason; they see what happens when things go wrong. But remember, our staff is here for you if you do have a problem. And we can help guide you about what treats are safe for your pets.
Good cheer to you all this season, and in the year ahead!
