Tips on Summer Holiday Hazards for Cats

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

  • 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.
