As a reminder, pets should not be having human treats. Make sure the food is placed in high areas and in another room. If needed, set up a comfortable area for your pets that is away from the holiday treats. Teach people, especially kids, to not hand out treats to pets. It is important to ensure the safety of our pets during the holiday season. If you suspect that your pet has ingested a toxic substance, contact ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.
