How To Make Your Christmas Tree Safe For Your Pet: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 140

While you are decking the halls and trimming the Christmas tree here are a few ways to make your tree safe for your furry family members.

1. Cover your tree stand with a tree skirt to prevent your pet from drinking the water in the base. This liquid can make your animal sick.

2. Have pet treats on hand to distract your pet away from the tree. The needles can easily get lodged in the animal’s throat, making it hard to swallow.

3. Place decorations that contain mistletoe, poinsettias and holly only in high sections of the tree, where your pet will be unable to get the tempting leaves and berries. They can cause heartbeat and blood pressure to drop.

4. Remove strings and ribbons from gifts that are left under the tree. These items may seem like toys to an animal, but can easily choke him or her.


5. Avoid using tinsel, since your dog can choke on it. Also understand that some of the older tinsel contains lead.

6. Remember not to use chocolate ornaments if there’s a chance that your pet could pull them off. An ingredient called theobromine can have a toxic effect on dogs.

7. Tape the electrical cords of your Christmas tree lights to the wall so your pet won’t chew them.
