Did you know that 90% of pet parents buy gifts for their pets on birthdays and holidays? And over 50% of those people actually wrap those gifts. That is why we want to make sure that during the holidays, the gifts we will be giving them are safe and fun to play around with.
Here are some lists of items that we should avoid according to our vets:
1. Chocolate - Anything chocolate, especially if wrapped and placed accessible under the tree.
2. Ornaments - on the tree that are accessible and look like food
