Truly Grateful: A Look at Thanksgiving Pet Safety

Of all the things we are all truly grateful for, the health, safety, and general well being of our four-legged best friends surely top the list. It may seem like an easy feat, but keeping our pets far from danger is anything but. 

During this time of year, it remains essential to have a firm grip on what Thanksgiving pet safety entails. With all measures in place, you can sit back, relax, and have a slice of pie.

Staying Close

Pets are at risk of accidental separation throughout the year, but it’s keenly felt around the holidays. Starting with Thanksgiving, we encourage all owners to check (and re-check) their pet’s collars and tags. If they don’t have a microchip yet, or you’ve changed your contact information since original registration, please let us know


A Focus On Halloween Pet Safety Can Really Lift the Dread

There’s nothing worse than a pet emergency, except for those times when a dire situation could have been prevented. When it comes to celebrating a holiday with pets, the focus definitely tends to shift away from the routine toward creating special moments and lasting memories. But, without a conscious and complete nod to Halloween pet safety, all the potential fun and good times can quickly become downgraded by a pet’s holiday-related fear, stress, illness or injury.

Covering All Bases

One of the best defenses against Halloween-related threats is to simply keep your pet away from possible dangers. Keep your pet confined to a comfortable, well-ventilated back room away from the constantly ringing doorbell. You could also crate them during the peak hours of trick-or-treating to keep them from bolting out the door into the night.
