This season is full of yummy treats, sparkly decorations, and fun festivities. However, not all of these festive activities are animal-safe. Did you know the holidays have the highest traffic for emergency vet visits out of the year?

With that said, let’s take a look at how we can keep our four-legged companions safe this holiday season.


Yes, turkey may seem like the healthy option to sneak under the table to your pet, however, make sure there’s no fatty skin attached. Dogs and cats have a hard time digesting the fattier foods, which can lead to pancreatitis. 

We all know that candies, especially chocolate are bad for the pups. There are plenty of treats sent and received from co-workers, family, and friends. Be very mindful this season to keep sweets out of reach from your furry friends. 


The Christmas tree is up, and boy, is it perfect!? Perfect until your four-legged friend climbs underneath and knocks it over creating not only a mess for you, but a possible injury for them! Make sure the tree is anchored securely so that it doesn’t tip or fall. Also, be sure to check in on the water, which is a breeding ground for bacteria. Having your pet ingest this could cause diarrhea and/or nausea.

We love having our walkways and windows draped with garland and holly, but be mindful that if ingested, this could cause serious nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Also, mistletoe and other holiday plants like poinsettias can cause serious issues such as gastrointestinal upset and even cardiovascular problems. Either keep out of reach, or opt for the artificial greenery around the home.

After making sure your home is holiday-ready and pet-friendly, remember that accidents still happen. These accidents aren’t just seasonal, they happen year round. Make sure you and your furry family member(s) are covered if an emergency arises. Call our office to get a free quote or if you are to have any basic questions concerning Virginia pet insurance!
