Whilst it is the season to be jolly, it is important to remember pet safety. This time of year is not without risks to our beloved pets and here are our top tips to make sure our animals stay safe & healthy.
Quite a few delicious Christmas food items are toxic to cats and dogs. These include:
Many ornamental plants and holly are toxic if ingested. Keep a particular eye on cats!

Christmas Presents – make sure anything put under the tree is pet friendly. Animals have much better noses than we do and can sniff out food very quickly!
One last thing, if it turns cold, remember that anti-freeze is extremely toxic to cats.
