The holidays are a time of family gatherings, good cheer, and unfortunately for many pet owners, emergency trips to the veterinary hospital. That’s right, while there is a lot to love about all the winter festivities December holds, there are also some surprising risks that the season presents to the furriest members of our households.
Dangers in the Home for Cats
Dangers IN THE HOME include plants, drugs, chemicals, gardening and lawn care supplies, car care products, and insecticide baits to name a few. Actual reports of cats getting seriously ill from eating plants are relatively rare compared to reports of poisoning from household products or drugs, but it is best to eliminate toxic plants from your cat’s environment and provide safe alternatives.
