We hope you and your pets have a fabulous time! Here are our top 5 tips for making sure everyone stays safe…

Keep pets warm

Make sure bedding, cages and other enclosures are stored in a warm, dry and comfortable area of the house.

Put decorations up gradually

If you’ve left it too late, just bear in mind that a change in their environment can be very stressful for pets. Go slowly and keep your eyes peeled.

Beware of poisonous snacks

Lots of popular human treats are poisonous to pets, particularly chocolate, sweet mince pies, xylitol (found in many sugar-free treats) and alcohol. Make sure your pet doesn’t get their paws on them!

Plan ahead

Whether you’re heading out of staying in, make sure you’ve made all the arrangements necessary to ensure your pet stays comfortable and well cared for.

Keep an eye out

It could be your decorations, your snacks, the kids’ presents or your furniture… humans aren’t the only ones who get excited at Christmas. Make sure you (or someone else) is watching out for your furry friend at all times.

We wish you a relaxing break, and all the best for 2020!
