Thanksgiving is a special holiday that brings together family and friends, but it also can carry hazards for pets. To help you keep patients safe and healthy – and out of the emergency clinic – during the national holiday, we’ve just published a set of Thanksgiving tips for pet owners, which we invite you to share with clients and friends.
Veterinarians know the dangers that can come with holidays: food toxins, noises and activities that can frighten pets, plus various risks associated with travel. Our Thanksgiving Pet Safety page gives you a handy resource to share with clients to make sure they’re mindful of these concerns as well. Divided into separate sections covering poison risks, party precautions, and travel safety, it gives pet owners easy guidelines to help keep their pets safe during the holiday.
Please share this with your social media followers, and link to it from your clinic’s website or newsletter. You might also want to share some of these additional resources to provide more specific information related to some of the risks of holiday celebrations:
