It's time to prepare your pet for possible holiday stress from guests! The holidays can look different for everyone, whether we are traveling or hosting. Having other people in the home besides your immediate family can make your pets feel uncomfortable, or they could become overstimulated from having guests over and may have trouble relaxing.
If your pet struggles with situational anxiety from having company over, we’ve got some tips and tricks to make for a more calming holiday experience!
The holiday season is full of potential hazards for our pets. During Hanukkah, dogs and cats can be safe by following a few pet safety tips. Here’s our list of pet safety tips for a seamless and memorable Hanukkah celebration.
There are some types of decorative plants that are toxic to dogs and cats. In some cases, only mild indigestion and discomfort will result, in other cases, the toxicity can lead to more severe health problems, and even fatalities.

Here's a look at some of the most common poisonous holiday plants along with some reassurance about plants many people think are poisonous that really aren't that dangerous.
If you think the years fly by quickly, try being a cat or dog! Then again, they don't really understand the concept of a New Year's Eve celebration. When you celebrate tonight, please think about things from their perspective and make the night safe and stress-free for your pets as possible.
