Being conscious of potential pet hazards during the holidays can increase the chances of having a safe and happy holiday!

Most summertime holidays revolve around pool parties, tailgate parties and barbeques. Fireworks may also be involved.

  • Be aware that pets can fall into pools and drown.

  • Fireworks can cause burns or severe gastrointestinal inflammation if ingested.

  • Serious intestinal problems can occur if many table scraps are fed.

  • Ingestion of charcoal and lighter fluid can be damaging.

  • Fishhooks are tempting and, if loaded with bait, quite tasty snacks.

  • If cooling off and rest time is not allowed, over heating and potential heatstroke can occur.
