TUCSON- Whether it's a new dog seeing a Christmas tree for the first time or an older dog who only sees it once a year, you have to take some precautions to make sure everyone gets through the season safely.
Here are a few tips:
Holiday food is abundant but not safe for animals. Stick to dog food. Bones can be especially dangerous as they can splinter and harm the animal.
Decorations are not toys. Tinsel in particular can be very harmful if swallowed, wrapping around the animal's intestines.
Christmas trees and other plants can be harmful and poisonous. The trees can often have preservative chemicals that drips into the water dogs naturally want to drink. Be observant.
