The holidays involve a lot of family, a lot of decorations, and a lot of extra stuff. They're an amazing respite for all of those reasons. Juggling so many new things means it becomes easy to overlook what your pet's getting up to. Family coming in and out can mean a dog getting outside, decoration can mean a cat eating tinsel, and all those extra toys can be a hazard to animals looking for something to chew on. Luckily it only takes a few good habits to avoid a potentially heartbreaking holiday emergency.
