As the holiday season approaches, we must think about ourselves and our furry companions. Pets are a part of our family, and we should always be mindful of what we feed them, especially during this time of year.
While sharing some of your holiday meals with your beloved pet may be tempting, it's important to remember that their digestive systems are not the same as ours. Human foods that are heavily seasoned or contain high salt levels can adversely affect our pets. The last thing you want is for your dog to end up with an upset stomach during this festive time.
To avoid unwanted vet trips, feed your pet their regular food and treats. If you want to give them a special holiday treat, ensure it is safe for their consumption. Some pet-friendly foods that are safe in moderation include plain cooked turkey or chicken, sweet potatoes, and green beans.
Remember the pets in our local animal shelters as we indulge in delicious holiday meals. These animals also need love and care, especially during this time of year. While some may think about gifting a pet to their child as a holiday present, it's important to remember that pets are a life-long commitment. Before bringing a new furry friend home, consider adopting from your local shelter instead.
Not only will you give a loving home to an animal in need, but you will also teach your children about the importance of responsible pet ownership. Your local animal shelter has a variety of pets to choose from, so you can find the perfect match for your family.
This holiday season, let's think about our happiness and the well-being of our beloved pets and animals in shelters. By being mindful of what we feed our pets and considering adoption from shelters, we can make this a happy and safe holiday for all. Let's spread love and joy to our furry friends as well! So please, remember to keep your pet's safety in mind while enjoying the holidays and consider giving back by adopting from an animal shelter. Happy Holidays! #KeepPetsSafeDuringHolidays #AdoptDontShop
