Be extra careful during the busy holiday season to take safety precautions for your pets.

Bones from turkey, ham, lamb and other meats can be dangerous. If it’s too large or sharp, a bone can damage the intestinal tract and require surgery.

Chocolate, particularly dark or baking chocolate, can be dangerous for dogs. And the artificial sweetener Xylitol found in candy and baked goods is also dangerous.

Holiday plants such as mistletoe and lilies can be life-threatening to animals. Holly can be toxic.

Tinsel and other decorations can be harmful to curious cats and be sure your pup doesn't swallow something he shouldn't.
