Cibyn Veterinary Clinic - Vets in Caernarfon
Christmas Top Tips for you and your Pet.
Christmas Tree and Decorations
The Christmas tree can easily be knocked over and glass ornaments can break causing harm to your pet.
Think of a safe position for your tree to keep your animals safe.
Real trees drop their needles which can become embedded into paws.
Avoid hanging chocolate decorations as these are poisonous to animals.
Think of sweets filled with alcohol and Christmas pudding. Keep these out of reach. Symptoms can be vomiting, tremors and seizures.
Gifts and Toys
Take care when opening presents.
Animals can ingest elastic bands, tags, ribbons, batteries and paper.
Eating foreign objects can cause choking, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Turkey meat is not often eaten, so given as a one off to your pet may cause tummy upsets. This may cause lethargy, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Be careful with meat bones as these can cause obstructions in the intestines.
Cooked bones are worse.
If you are concerned about your pet, please call the practice. We are happy to help and advise
