Preparing Your Pet For the Holidays

By FOX 47 News . CREATED Nov 20, 2013

Pet care experts Charlotte Reed and Dr. Michael Fleck talk about how to pet-proof your house and prepare your pets for the holiday season. Reed suggests planning ahead about whether you will be home or traveling over the holidays so that you can make proper arrangements for your pet. She also recommends planning appropriately so you are not running last minute errands for your fluffy friend. Reed lets viewers in on a secret that Black Friday is the best time to stock up on pet food, toys, etc. because the deals are outrageous! 

Dr. Michael Fleck notes that it is important to think about your pet when putting up decorations. Plants, like poinsettias, should not be left on the ground because they can be toxic. He reminds people to think "pet friendly" when hanging ornaments and other items on the tree, as well as around the house.
