Before giving into those pleading eyes and feeding leftovers or treats, be aware of the dangers or feeding “people food” to your pet. While tasty to us, fatty meats and indigestible bones can cause choking. And, remember that many of our favorite holiday foods and spices — chocolate, onions, garlic and grapes — can be toxic to dogs and cats.
Show Your Love
Make the holidays special for your pet by showing extra love and attention. A long walk will help you and your pet relieve stress, enjoy fresh air and exercise. If you’re stuffing a stocking, dogs often enjoy indestructible toys or chew treats, and cats delight in a warm bed or new scratching post.
