Be Thankful For Pets -- But Celebrate Wisely

● Decorations can be dangerous. As you dress your Thanksgiving table with a centerpiece and flowers, remember to keep them up and away from your pets.  Some decorations look good enough to eat, and pets may decide to have a taste.  Depending on the flower or decoration, this can result in stomach upset or worse. Lilies, in particular, are deadly to cats.  Pine cones and needles, if consumed by a pet, can cause an intestinal blockage or even perforate the animal's intestine.

● Fire, kids and pets make a bad combination.  Dinner by candlelight can provide an elegant atmosphere for a holiday meal.  And what isn't cozy about having a fire in the fireplace when guests arrive? But where there's a flame, there's the opportunity for disaster.  Make sure you're careful to keep children and pets away from any open flame or fire. And if you're not sure you can ensure their safety in the holiday commotion, use battery operated candles and forget the fire in the fireplace.  No amount of elegance or cozy will make up for an injured loved one or a house that's burnt to the ground.

The AVMA has a video of useful tips on how to keep pets healthy and safe during the holidays.  For more information about pet health and safety, visit www.avma.org.

The AVMA, founded in 1863, is one of the oldest and largest veterinary medical organizations in the world, with more than 82,500 member veterinarians worldwide engaged in a wide variety of professional activities.
