Antifreeze: Pets love the taste of ethylene glycol. Just a small amount is enough to kill a pet. Check you vehicles for leaks and make sure all bottles are out of reach.

Candy: Not only can candy cause gastrointestinal upset but many sweet treats can be deadly.  Pets need to stay clear from Chocolate, raisins, and the artificial sweetener xylitol.

Cold Weather:  The drop in temperature can bring on a handful concerns.  Make sure outside pets have shelter to get away from the elements and dpo not leave thin coat animals out in cold weather for long periods of time. Cold weather can also cause arthritis problems to flare up. Make sure older pets have a warm comfortable place to go in cold weather.

Thanksgiving:  Keep the Thanksgiving celebration to the humans.  The decadent feast can cause gastrointestinal upset and even pancreatitis. Make sure all bones are disposed of properly, cooked bones can splinter and cause serious issues when swallowed.

Decorations: Keep ornaments, tinsel, and holiday lights up and out of reach of pets

Plants:  Although festive and beautiful many holiday plants are poisonous to pets.  Plants that should be avoided are holly, amaryllis, mistletoe, poinsettia, Christmas cactus, chrysanthemums, Christmas rose, Jerusalem cherry, autumn crocus, and burning bush. These plants can cause vomiting, diarrhea, breathing problems, shock and even death.
