Make the Holidays fun for your pets too…
Increased visitors, unexpected guests and a change to the normal routine over the hectic holiday season can change a pet’s normal routine and increase their stress level. For a pet thats used to following a regular routine the holidays can become a very stressful time.
Unfortunately for home owners, one of the first symptoms of a “stressed-out” pet is often unexpected and an accident indoors. With potential for the ‘expected’ spills and stains that come with holiday entertaining, the last thing pet owners want or need is a pet stain to clean up and the potential lingering odour that comes with it.
Here’s what we recommend for pet lovers to ensure a joyful and accident-free holiday season with their furry companions:
- Create a safe space for pets away from the crowd that includes toys, their bed and other familiar items like food and a water bowl to help decrease anxiety.
- Stick to a familiar schedule as much as possible and limit the amount of changes pets are exposed to by taking walks and feeding them at the regular times.
- Pet-proof the home by keeping holiday decorations, electrical cords, food, alcoholic beverages, and holiday plants out of reach to avoid stressful trips to the vet.
When accidents do occur, it is vital to act quickly to remove the stains.
