Pet Safe Holiday Tips

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, What a Temptation You Are to Me…

The safest place for your Christmas tree is in a room that’s off limits to your pet. If that’s not feasible, situate it in a corner that you can block off with a play fence or other obstruction.

Be sure to secure your Christmas tree to your ceiling or walls with fishing line or some sort of discrete string. This will help prevent Fido or Fluffy from tipping it over onto him/herself, or onto someone else.

Pine needles (real and artificial) can seriously injure your pet if they are ingested. Keep your pet away from the water for your live Christmas tree as they may be getting a dose of tree fertilizer or other harmful chemicals with their drink. 

Do not put aspirin, sugar or anything else in the water at the base of your tree if you have pets. Some of these additives can be extremely toxic for pets.

Secure any electrical cords for holiday lights so your pets can’t get to them. Some pets like to use them as chew toys, and that can lead to a shocking experience!

Christmas lights can get extremely hot, giving your dog or cat a bad little burn if they venture over to sniff or touch them.

Finally – remember that if any pet emergencies arise during this holiday season, AZ Pet Vet is always ready and willing to help out. Happy Holidays to all!

Let’s Support Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds

This holiday season, members of the Arizona Pet Vet family are banding together to play not-so-secret Santa Paws for small community-based organizations that make a big difference for pets in need. Sometimes, these organizations make an even bigger difference for people. Like Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds.

It’s estimated that up to 25 percent of homeless people own a companion animal, and they will often do without food or medicine for themselves, simply so their beloved pets can eat. Regular veterinary visits, vaccinations, and other pet care services are simply out of reach. It’s heartbreaking. 

Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds helps by providing food, spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchips, and county licensure to pets owned by homeless people. 100% of the proceeds and donations benefit homeless-owned pets.

What They’re Wishing For:

  • Bottled water
  • Blankets
  • Cat and dog food                                
  • Cat litter and scoopers
  • Cat treats (no catnip)
  • Clothes and booties
  • Collapsible bowls
  • Dog harnesses and leashes
  • Dog toys
  • Food bowls
  • Litter boxes
  • Nail trimmers
  • Natural jerky treats
  • Pet strollers
  • Pet wipes
  • Puppy pads
  • Transport kennels and soft sided pet carriers

We’re collecting donations for Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds at the following AZ Pet Vet locations until December 31, 2017. Let’s unleash some love and help them kick off the new year right!

Let’s Play Santa Paws!

Each act of giving — no matter how big or how small — adds more brightness to the world. Pets give love freely, without conditions. That’s why so many homes shine so brightly with a pet in them!

While there are many pawsome animal rescue organizations in Arizona – many smaller groups struggle to get the support they need.

This holiday season, members of the AZ Pet Vet family are banding together to play not-so-secret Santa Paws for two very small community-based organizations that make a big difference for pets in need.

Grandpaw’s Pantry provides pet supplies to rescued ‘pets to be’ — animals that are waiting to find their people and forever homes.

Helping Hands for Homeless Hounds supports the needs of homeless animals in Maricopa County.

We’re collecting donations for these organizations at AZ Pet Vet locations until December 31, 2017. Let’s unleash some love and help them kick off the new year right!

Let’s Have a Pet-Safe Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to the entire AZ Pet Vet family!

This year, as you celebrate the holiday with family and friends, remember that temptations abound for everyone – including your pets. There’s no need to leave your pets out of the festivities – just be careful about the types of food they eat and make sure they do not overindulge.

No under the table treats please! Fatty foods can cause some nasty digestive problems for your pets, so be sure to keep them out of reach.

Your trash container is also going to be filled with a variety of scraps, foil, plastic wrap, and food waste that could harm your pet if they get into it. Keep all trash containers well covered and away from pets – behind closed doors if possible.

Here are the DOs and DON’Ts for pets and holiday foods:

The NO NO List
 – Turkey – while small amounts of skinless meat can be safe, it’s best to avoid
– Stuffing – chock full of ingredients that can harm your pet
– Mashed potatoes – too much butter and other fats
– Candied yams – too much sugar, butter and other fats
– Gravy – far too rich for pets’ tummies
– Candy – especially chocolate
– Pie or other desserts

SAFE & YUMMY
 – Green beans (plain, steamed or boiled)
– Baby carrots (raw or cooked)
– Apple slices (small, thin slices)
– Celery – add a smear of natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
– Plain pumpkin puree (not pie filling)

WATCH OUT
If you see sudden changes in behavior, depression, pain, vomiting, or diarrhea in your pet, contact your veterinarian immediately.

If you believe your pet has been poisoned or has eaten something it shouldn’t have, call your veterinarian or local veterinary emergency clinic immediately.
