New Years Pet Safety Tips

Can you believe that 2017 is almost over? As we welcome in the new year, lets make sure that we start off 2018 in good health with these easy pet safety tips.

  • Keep your pet inside. If you are having a party or going out for the night, make sure to keep your dog or cat inside for the night. There is a lot of noise, fireworks, cars, parties etc outside that can be very scary for your pet. You don’t want them to get scared and run away. Keeping them inside is the best way to keep them safe. It is also a good idea to get them microchipped so if they do get away from you house they can be found and easily returned to you.
  • All that noise! New Years Eve can be super noisy. Maybe it is the party at your house, or your neighbors fireworks, or that bottle of champagne popping, but all that noise can cause your pet to feel anxious. Give them a room away from the noise. If your dog is crate trained then give them access to their crate so they can be alone.
  • No table scraps: Many of us have a big New Years meal and our dog or cat would do just about anything to get some of those scraps. Remember that a lot of what we eat can make our pets ill. You don’t want them puking all over the house when you are trying to get your midnight kiss. If you want to give them a special meal, then make something just for them.

Stay safe and have a great New Year!
