Seasons Greetings from our Doctors and Staff! The Holidays are a time of giving and sharing. However, this festive season offers a variety of food and decor that can be unhealthy for pets. Here are some attractive items that can cause your pet harm: electrical cords, tinsel, ribbon, open flames (such as candles), and artificial snow. Place potentially dangerous plants such as poinsettias, holly berry plants, and mistletoe out of your pets reach. The season also offers a variety of foods that can be unhealthy for pets. Fatty rich foods, and alcoholic beverages should be avoided; along with bakers chocolate, bones, and festive left overs.
