When feeding your pet treats, it is important to know that they should not eat certain foods. In general “people food” should be given to pets sparingly if at all, but some foods can be toxic. Most ofrepparttar greasy holiday foods that we love to eat are not good for them and overfeeding can make them ill. In particular do not feed them chocolate - it can be fatal especially to cats. So make sure you move those valentine candies, Easter eggs and chocolate Santas out of pets reach. Other foods to avoid are onions, alcohol and poultry bones. In addition, birds should not be fed avocados, dairy products, fruit seeds, potatoes, cabbage, green beans, lemons, rhubarb, grapefruit, plums and, of course, caffeine, chocolate, and alchohol. Any of these can be harmful and even fatal to your feathered friend! Also, keep in mind thatrepparttar 125849 fumes from non stick pans can be fatal for pet birds so keep your bird out ofrepparttar 125850 kitchen, or better yet, switch to cast iron pans.

When decorating with plants either forrepparttar 125851 holidays or just in general, keep pet safety in mind. There are many toxic plants but common toxic holiday plants include potted bulbs, ivy, holly, mistletoe and greens (contrary to popular belief poinsettia are not overly dangerous but I still wouldn't let my pet eat one!). This is not an exhaustive list so before you bring any new plant intorepparttar 125852 house please research it's toxicity.

It’s just as important to look out for your pets safety outside as it is inside. Beware that antifreeze is extremely toxic to pets. Keep your pet away from any puddles that might contain it. Rock salt can be irritating to pet paws and also to their stomach if eaten or licked offrepparttar 125853 paws. Use common sense when practicing pet safety duringrepparttar 125854 winter months.
