Once your 2-legged children have come home with that stash of candy, make sure it is inaccessible to your 4-legged children. Lots of chocolate toxicities happen this time of year. Sometimes when guests stay at your home during holiday festivities pets are kept somewhere where they don’t normally reside (ie, the garage or a patio). Please check that there is no rat poison, ant poison, antifreeze or poisonous plants available for them to eat. These simple steps can keep holiday time fun and safe.
