tips-for-a-merry-christmas-2022-with-your-pet-your-guide-for-the-safety-of-your-little-friend-during-winter-holidays

On Christmas we celebrate and have fun with family and friends, but this period can be a source of stress for pets. There is a possibility that your four-legged friend will get sick because he is eating something he shouldn't or for other reasons.


So Bemorepanda gives you a small guide to help your non-speaking friend get through the holidays safely and happily.


Stress. During the Christmas period, many pets can suffer from the stress caused by this period. Many things, such as the arrival of friends and family to visit, loud noises, fireworks and excited children running around can trigger stress. Cats are the most sensitive, because any change in their daily routine can trigger stress. One tip to help them is to give them a quiet and safe refuge. You can put their bowls of food and water in a quiet bedroom. You can also consider using pheromone products or herbal medicines that will help you relax and calm down.


The decorations. Christmas is not Christmas without a big Christmas tree covered with lights and globes. The decorations help us make the house have a festive aura, but for dogs and cats they can be something new to play with or worse, something new to eat.


Ball-loving dogs may not be able to resist the temptation to play with the shiny glass globes. Cats may not be able to see the sound of a bell. For the safety of pets, monitor their activity and keep these objects as far away from them as possible.


These ornaments can cause gastrointestinal problems (the object may become blocked or cause cuts). Also, depending on the materials used to make them, some ornaments can be toxic when ingested.


Tinsel and ribbons. Cats really like to play with strings on which various toys are hung, and the tinsel, being shiny, is even more attractive. Although tinnitus is not poisonous, if it is eaten it can cause intestinal damage and surgery may be needed to remove it. The same goes for ribbons. If portions of the ribbon are food, they can in the worst case cause death of the animal by asphyxiation or, if they reach the intestine, they can cause injuries. And in the case of globes, you have to be careful. Hanging on the branches of the tree, the cat will find them as the perfect toys. If you accidentally break a globe, it can be cut into shards.


In order for these things not to happen, it would be good to get your four-legged child used to the decorations and the Christmas tree, or to install it in a room where he does not have access.


Plants. Some festive plants are poisonous. Poinsettia, for example, can cause hypersalivation, lethargy, vomiting and depression. There are other plants, such as mistletoe that can cause vomiting and diarrhea. The fir tree, although not considered toxic, can become dangerous if the needles are ingested or not collected after they have fallen. They can cause cushioning or intestinal damage. So it's a good idea to make sure those falls are collected regularly.


House lily (Amaryllis) is a very popular plant during the winter season. Flowers and leaves are toxic to animals, and the flower bulb is even more toxic. If your pet has ingested flowers or leaves, it will suffer from vomiting, excessive salivation and diarrhea. If the animal has managed to eat from the bulb, especially in large quantities, it can cause weakness, tremor, seizures and changes in blood pressure.


Christmas lights. If your furry likes to play with cables, then it is important to keep it away from the lights in the Christmas tree when they are on. If you nibble them while they are on, they will transmit a fairly large shock that will be fatal. My advice is not to leave the lights on when you sleep or when you are away from home.


Electric shock can be fatal to your pet. Electric shock can cause fluid to build up in the lungs, called non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. This condition can cause respiratory problems and can be fatal.


Lighted candles. They must be kept on a stand, at a height that curious quadrupeds cannot reach.


A burn in the mouth can cause significant pain, and can lead to food refusal in the case of pets. If you notice that your pet is reluctant when it comes to food, salivates excessively or shows signs of sore mouth (for example, does not want to play with his toys), seek medical attention immediately.


The food. Christmas is for us the period when we forget about diets and pamper ourselves with delicious dishes. Christmas dishes are not only tempting for us, but also for them, especially if they are left at their fingertips. It would be best to store them carefully and not give them away (not even a little).


Walnuts. These nuts, especially macadamia nuts, can be toxic and cause muscle weakness, hypothermia and tremor in dogs. For cats this food is forbidden.


The bones. Whether you are cooking chicken, turkey, pork or beef, avoid giving your companion bones. These, once cooked, are quite brittle and can cause many injuries both in the pharynx and in the lining of the stomach and intestines, and if not intervened quickly can be fatal.


Alcohol. Many of us enjoy one or two glasses of alcohol. But don't forget the unattended glass if you have a dog around. Pets have a very low tolerance to alcohol, which causes serious liver damage.


Onions and related vegetables (garlic and leeks) should be kept away from them, as they can cause weakness, depression and lethargy.


Grapes, raisins and sultanas. These fruits are very dangerous for both dogs and cats. If eaten within 24 to 72 hours of ingestion may cause kidney failure.


Chocolate is dangerous because it contains an ingredient called theobromine. If your quadruped eats chocolate, it causes vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, changes in heart rate and, in severe cases, seizures. If you want to treat your fur with something sweet, you can get special chocolate for him from the pet shop.


Gifts. At Christmas you can treat your companion with a multitude of gifts, but you have to make sure that they do not hurt him. For example, if you want to take a collar from your cat, it must be of the "quick release" type, so that if your cat is caught with the collar in a tight place, it can be released. The same goes for dogs.


Christmas Tree. The most common species of natural Christmas trees are fir, pine and forest pine. In general, these trees are not very toxic, but the more the pet eats, the higher the level of toxicity.


Christmas tree-specific oils can cause irritation to the mouth and stomach, causing excessive salivation or even vomiting. The needles of these trees are not easily digestible and can cause gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting, obstruction or puncture.


Make sure your pets do not have access to the water of the Christmas tree (if you have it in a pot). Dogs and cats can get sick from preservatives, pesticides, fertilizers or other agents such as aspirin, which can often be found in water to keep the tree in good condition. It is best to keep the water for the tree in a covered pot.


Natural Christmas trees are not the only problem. Artificial firs may contain toxic and indigestible materials that can cause intestinal obstruction.


The good thing about artificial firs is that the materials they are made of are stinging and usually not pleasant to chew. Most of the time the animals will not consume large amounts of these materials.\


Take care of you and your loved ones on this holiday!


Merry Christmas 2022! HO-HO-HO

top-30-funniest-christmas-pictures-with-dogs-that-always-choose-to-be-the-star-of-the-evening

Dogs love Christmas and the positive energy of their owners during this period. The quadrupeds are delighted to spend time with their families. The atmosphere and the agitation that is created when the whole family gathers, is taken over by our furs who certainly do not want to be ignored. Puppies with more withdrawn and quiet behavior will probably be reluctant to join, but most love these festivities.


All the guests who cross your doorstep, friends or relatives, will pay a lot of attention to your dog. Certainly no puppy will be bothered by a scratching session on the belly or many kisses.

Where there is more food, the opportunity to receive delicious rewards increases. But we must remember what foods are allowed and what could harm the puppy. Christmas is for us the period when we forget about diets and pamper ourselves with delicious dishes. Christmas dishes are not only tempting for us, but also for them, especially if they are left at their fingertips. It would be best to store them carefully and not give them away (not even a little).


If you wrap presents at home, give your dog a toy so he can be busy with something. There are also dogs who love to help unpack gifts. Who doesn't love to receive Christmas presents? A new toy, delicious rewards or chewing bones, will delight any dog!

Dress your dog in fluffy overalls or blouses with Christmas themes: snowman, reindeer, Santa Claus or leprechaun. Preferably choose a fluffy and comfortable material.


Lights, balls, fir trees and balls rolling on the living room floor. This is the atmosphere long awaited by your four-legged friend who is just waiting for a new play session while you decorate the Christmas tree. Christmas is not Christmas without a big Christmas tree covered with lights and globes. The decorations help us make the house have a festive aura, but for dogs and cats they can be something new to play with or worse, something new to eat.
