The holidays are upon us! Every year we hear lots of stories of pets eating unlikely items at this time of year. The last thing anyone wants is the added expense of a big veterinary bill. Pets should avoid the excesses of the season, as much as we should. Fatty foods and foods high in salt can cause vomiting, diarrhea and pancreatitis. Food wrappers, presents, ribbon, toys and a host of other items are foreign bodies waiting to happen. Chocolate can lead to vomiting, diarrhea and if severe enough hospitalization. Use caution and be watchful this season to keep it Merry! The colder weather of winter can also be an issue for pets. Frostbite, while uncommon in Virginia, is possible. Make sure your pet stays warm. Outside animals need to be able to get out of the weather to stay warm and have water sources that do not freeze. Salt products on sidewalks can cause burns to pet’s feet and stomach upset if ingested. Wipe pets’ feet and legs down if they are exposed to such products. Be aware that fleas and ticks can still be active at this time of year. Continuing preventatives for heartworm disease and flea and tick control are recommended. Above all have a great winter season!- Melanie Bell, DVM
