How to help pets survive the holidays
To not swallow anything
If there is a cat in the house, then do not decorate the tree with rain or tinsel. Cats love to play with Christmas decorations, and can swallow them - especially they are attracted by the rain. Such incidents are dangerous to the animal. It happens that a cat independently gets rid of a whole lump of rain with the help of vomiting. But most often the rain is drawn into a long thread throughout the intestines and it can only be obtained by surgery.
Dogs usually swallow champagne corks.
To not be scared
Holiday fireworks are a whole test for some dogs. As the holidays drag on for a long time, especially impressionable animals spend more than one week in nervous tension. If the dog is afraid of loud noises, go for a walk in a harness, and on a collar, it is more difficult to get out of it and run away.
So as not to get hurt
Other dogs, on the contrary, like to hunt for firecrackers. If you run too close to them, your dog may get concussion, injury, burns, or even injury. Better leave your dog at home when you go to fire a salute.
To not hurt the paws
In winter, do not forget to monitor the condition of your pets ’paws - dogs that walk on city streets often suffer from dermatitis pads due to special road reagents and salt. To avoid this, wear dogs shoes or after each walk, thoroughly wash the paws with soap and lubricate with emollients. At the pet store you can buy a special balm for paws.
