Tips for a Merry Christmas 2022 with your pet! Your guide for the safety of your little friend during Winter Holidays

2 years ago

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

Many families have dogs and cats. But not everyone knows how to interpret this or that behavior of a pet. And this is necessary, because sometimes it testifies not at all to a bad character or upbringing, but to problems with it's health.



About the behavior of dogs and cats that you would like to know the answer to


Anyone who has ever observed the behavior of dogs or cats has seen how they periodically begin to spin in a top, trying to catch their tail. Why do they do it? Does it hurt or not when they manage to do it? Do they know that their tails are actually attached to them?


To better understand your four-legged friend, read what experts say the common behavioral traits of dogs and cats mean.


What is normal dog behavior?


Humans tend to project human traits and emotions onto dogs, and we are already used to certain behavioral responses from these animals. However, while we can notice things like canine anxiety in a dog's body language and understand why they howl, some dog behaviors, like barking for no reason or wanting to wallow in smelly things, confuse us.


What is classified as normal dog behavior may surprise you. Here's what the pet experts say.


1. Barks at the postman

Every day the postman delivers letters and parcels, and every day your dog barks. Does this behavior mean that your four-legged friend hates postal workers? “Barking at people outside is a defensive behavior,” says Gary Richter, MD, veterinarian and founder of Ultimate Pet Nutrition. "Dogs view their home as their territory and anyone approaching or near their territory is a potential threat, so they bark to ward off an intruder."


Think about it from your dog's point of view: the postman delivers the mail, the dog barks to keep the intruder away, and the postman leaves. This creates a pattern that gets stronger each time. “From the point of view of dogs, every day they save the house from invasion, driving away the invader. We never appreciate their efforts,” says Dr. Richter.


2. Biting

Your puppy's light, loving nibbles are sweet and adorable, but if you don't nip this behavior in the bud, it's a training mistake you'll regret when your pet has adult teeth. "Dogs may playfully bite their owners' hands or feet because they know it draws attention to them, even if it's negative attention," says Joe Gale, MD, MD, Mars Petcare veterinarian. A playful bite can quickly turn into something more serious as the dog becomes overly agitated.


Biting can also be the result of a dog's anxiety and stress, or a warning sign that your dog is in pain, especially if he bites you when you touch or move him. As for biting as a form of aggression, this can usually be identified by the dog's facial expression and body language. This is not always the case, so be sure to contact the experts. “You should always consult a veterinarian and a bite behaviorist to avoid the risk of human injury,” advises Dr. Gale.


3. Begging for food

"Most dogs will happily accept any food at any time of the day," says Dr. Gale, noting that dogs shouldn't be blamed. “People actually provoke begging when they react and share their food with a dog. The dog quickly learns that this is a successful tactic for getting extra snacks.”


Staring at you and patiently waiting for a bite to eat or a treat after a job well done is an expected and common behavior. Growing puppies, pregnant and lactating dogs, breeds with high energy requirements, and those who exercise a lot can have increased appetites, Dr. Gale says. "If your pet's appetite changes or their weight increases, be sure to contact your veterinarian to find out the cause."


4. Poop in the house

One of the things veterinarians say you need to know about potty training is that you need to be prepared for "accidents" in the house. But it's also important to know that if your pet dog suddenly starts urinating in the house, it's not necessarily bad behavior. “My main concern when I hear this complaint is that your dog may have underlying medical issues such as urinary incontinence, inflammatory bowel disease, urinary tract infections, or even kidney failure,” says Dana Varble, MD, Chief veterinarian of the North American Veterinary Society. In addition, it is important to spay pets at the age recommended by your veterinarian to reduce the chance that the dog will mark territory, which is especially common in male dogs.


5. Wallowing in smelly things

Dogs have over 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, while humans have only six million. No wonder dogs can smell a lot more than we can. With such an abundance of receptors, one would think that dogs would be more selective and sensitive to smells, especially vile and pungent ones, such as the smell of a dead animal, but for them it is like perfume water (though smelly). “Their idea of ​​attractive smells is often different from ours,” says Jennifer L. Summerfield, MD, veterinarian at Brown Veterinary Services in Wayne, West Virginia. “It is believed that the habit of dogs to wallow in strongly smelly things may have arisen as a way to disguise their smell, which may be useful for hunting.”


6. Eats excrement and rot

Why do dogs eat feces and other disgusting things like rotting food? As with the sense of smell, dogs' sense of taste is highly developed and very different from ours. They and we both like juicy burgers, but rotten chicken or even dog vomit will also be to your taste. “Dogs originally evolved as scavengers, eating leftovers on the fringes of human settlements, and today, wild dog populations still manage to survive fairly well on less than ideal food sources such as garbage, corpses, and other nasty options,” explains Dr. Summerfield.


So why don't they get sick when they eat junk food? "A dog's gastrointestinal tract can process bacteria and other contaminants that can cause disease in humans, and is often able to extract some nutritional value from things like feces or vomit." Your dog's eating habits can also indicate a serious illness, so it's important to know why your dog is eating inedible things like dirt.


7. Looking for the right place to go poop

Dr. Summerfield says there are three possible reasons for the dog's behavior. One theory is that your dog is stomping around looking for a clean spot to go big. Secondly, it scans the area for predators. But the study uncovered perhaps the most interesting reason: "A study in Europe showed that dogs tend to stand in a north-south direction when they poop," says Dr. Summerfield. More interestingly, the dogs rarely pissed on the east-west line.


8. Sniffing the crotch

While this dog behavior is embarrassing, it's completely normal and you shouldn't be embarrassed. According to Dr. Summerfield, dogs collect a lot of vital information through their nose, and the most concentrated sources of pheromones are in the perineum or buttocks, whether you have two or four legs. “While we may find this behavior socially unacceptable, sniffing the anus or genitals of another dog is a very polite and normal way to say hello in the canine world, much like shaking hands is for humans,” she says.


9. Runs in a dream

As you might have guessed, this usually means they are dreaming, and fortunately, it usually has no medical significance, says Dr. Richter. Nevertheless, it makes you wonder what dogs dream about. Probably nothing supernatural. Studies have shown that some dog breeds display their distinctive traits in their sleep, such as the English Springer Spaniel stalking prey. If all this "running around" during sleep seems excessive, according to Dr. Richter, it may indicate hidden stress or illness. If dogs sleep too much, this can also be a sign of illness, so find out how much sleep dogs usually get.


10. Interaction with other dogs

"Many dogs experience anxiety or discomfort when interacting with other dogs," says Dr. Summerfield. "This may be due to genetics, negative past experiences, or lack of adequate early socialization during puppyhood."


The dog may rush forward and bark at another dog to keep it from getting too close - this is a kind of dog etiquette that you should follow.


Other dogs may hide behind you, while some simply lie down in an overly submissive position because they are scared or uncomfortable in the situation. “Dogs are often wary of other dogs but very friendly with people—or vice versa,” she says.


11. Licks the face (and other parts of the body)

Let's start with the most licked part of the body: the face. “Muzzle licking, especially around the mouth, is a normal friendly behavior that dogs often show towards other dogs when they say hello. This is usually seen as a way to say "Hello! I pose no threat to you!” says Dr. Summerfield. So it's perfectly natural (and delightful) for a dog to lick a human face as well.


What about other parts of the body? As for the feet, toes, and between the toes, the stronger the smell, the stronger the attraction. “This may be due to the higher concentration of odor in these areas, which is also why dogs are attracted to dirty socks and dirty laundry,” she says.


12. The dog rubs its bottom on the ground, and sits on the bottom too oftenS

It may look funny from the outside, but it can also be one of the things dogs do to let you know they are sick. The reason is that they have clogged or infected anal glands.


“Normal, these sacs release their contents, a brown liquid with a very pungent odor, when the dog defecates. But sometimes the sacs can become clogged or infected, making it hard for them to empty on their own,” explains Dr. Summerfield. To reduce discomfort, they slap their buttocks on the floor. "If this happens, your veterinarian can usually fix the problem by manually decanting the glands."


13. Puts his paws on you

Why is your dog doing this? All dogs are quite tactile, so according to Dr. Warble, this is their way of holding hands. “Have you ever seen photos of foxes or wolves playing or sleeping side by side in the wild? While most dogs don't like the restraint of cuddling, they like to make contact with their closest friends by putting their paws on them, and human companions are no different," she says.


Your puppy may also put his paw on you to let you know he's ready to play, or ask you to keep petting him after you stop. This is one of the clear signs that you are not giving your dog enough attention. "It's a great way to get our attention, and it always seems to work," says Dr. Varble.


14. Hides things

Why do some dogs bury their bones (and other treasures) or hide them behind chairs or under a pile of pillows on the couch? According to Dr. Richter, this is purely instinctive dog behavior. “They watch their stuff,” he says.


To prevent their treasures from being stolen by other animals, they hide them for safekeeping. Dachshunds, a breed known for hiding everything, may have a cache of toys and treats in the corner of a dog bed. Some hunting breeds, such as hounds and terriers, tend to burrow because the prey they hunt lives underground. If your dog likes to bury his stuff outside, make sure his dig sites aren't exposed to the usual backyard hazards.


15. Rushing to the door

Dogs can sleep without their hind legs, but they will instantly rush to the door when it opens. This dog behavior is similar to ours, when we are surprised at something - we begin to act to see what's wrong. But for a dog, it's more than that. “This is an instinctive reaction in self-defense. Something has moved suddenly and unexpectedly, and they don't know what can get through the door,” says Dr. Richter. Some dogs, including guard breeds, go even further and burst through the door because they want to explore potential threats and protect their space.


16. Picks up items while walking

Most likely, you have seen how your pet picks up found items while walking. And it can be anything - from a stick to a used mask that someone dropped. “Dogs use their mouths in much the same way that human children use their hands. Many dogs are naturally curious about the world around them, and if they find something interesting, they may want to pick it up, hold it, or carry it for a while,” says Dr. Summerfield.


Wonder what your dog is thinking about as he collects these treasures? It's probably less complicated than you imagine. They are really curious, like toddlers. And they are attracted to certain objects in the same way that babies are attracted to their blankets. This is especially true of sporting and hunting dog breeds.


17. Tail wags to the left

A dog's tail can express a variety of emotions, and with careful observation, you can decipher what it is trying to tell you. For example, a low wagging tail with a wide arch indicates friendliness, while a high, stiff tail may indicate aggression or arousal. But why do dogs wag their tails to the left?


“Recent body language studies in dogs suggest that there may be a difference in how other dogs interpret left and right tail wagging and how dogs feel when their tail wag left or right,” says Dr. Summerfield. In the study, dogs remained relaxed when they saw a picture of another dog wagging its tail to the right, but when dogs saw a picture of a tail wagging to the left, it caused anxiety. More research is needed, but they do point to the tail as a key communicator.


Cats like to hide in boxes because they reduce stress: scientists explanation

Theoretically, at the moment, some scientists are of the opinion that cats, climbing into boxes, drawers, laundry baskets, etc., thus reduce their stress level. So, in 2014, scientists from the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, conducted a study in order to test this theory.


In the end, they confirmed that cats hiding in boxes, crates, and other objects actually reduce stress levels. The study was conducted at an animal shelter.


Scientists have found that stressful experiences in cats can have a serious impact on cat well-being and lead to an increase in the number of infectious diseases in shelters due to increased levels of cortisol, which causes immunodeficiency. But while researchers have been able to partially determine the reason why cats hide in boxes, they can determine whether boxes in shelters can reduce disease rates in stressed cats.


Scientists during the study immediately noticed the difference between the group of cats that were kept with boxes, and those that did not have boxes in their cages. Stress levels in cats were determined using the Kessler and Turner Cat-Stress (CSS) scale.


After a few days, cats caged with a box had lower stress levels than cats kept in cages without boxes.


In the end, the scientists concluded that shelter appears to be important for a cat, as it allows them to effectively cope with the stresses of a new environment in the first weeks after arriving in a new place. They also said further research is needed to determine what effect sheltering has on cats. For example, this is necessary in order to identify correlations between the frequency of outbreaks of infectious diseases in cats, depending on the presence of various shelters in the habitat.


Why do pets chase their tails: expert opinion?

Anyone who has ever observed the behavior of dogs or cats has seen how they periodically begin to spin in a top, trying to catch their tail. Why do they do it? Does it hurt or not when they manage to do it? Do they know that their tails are actually attached to them?


Sometimes cats get bored and start playing with their tail. Are they doing this to have fun and also to get my attention?


“Sometimes cats and dogs will chase their tails for fun (think of the reactions they see from their owners when chasing!), Animal Health and Behavior Consultant Erin Askeland of Camp Bow Wow told POPSUGAR. “Therefore, they may be doing this to get attention because of our reactive nature.


However, tail chasing can also be a sign of problems, such as boredom or energy overload, pain or discomfort caused by health problems or anxiety (such as OCD). Age and body characteristics also play a role.”


Do cats and dogs know that their tails are attached to them?

Sometimes when we watch my dog ​​catch his tail, we wonder if it hurts? After all, from the point of view of people, chewing on an arm or leg is not entirely pleasant.


Cats and dogs know their tails are connected to them. Although puppies and kittens don’t fully understand it yet, they can move them at will and feel touch, and they react to it.


Should we be concerned when our pets are tail chasing?

Of course, if your dog or cat is chasing its tail nonstop, it might be time to talk to a veterinarian.


What are the signs of cat anxiety?

1. Increased activity, motority, up to the fact that the animal destroys everything around (66%)

2. Desperate meow (63%)

3. Urination in the wrong places (60%)

4. Aggression, extreme irritation (36%)

5. Depression, apathy (53%)

6. Arousal (36%)

7. Defecation in the wrong places (23%)


In addition, the study found that the behavior of cats is also influenced by the social portrait of the owner of the animal. On the eve of separation from people, cats literally lost their heads because of the fear of being left to the mercy of fate. This is especially true in homes where:


  • There are several grown women
  • Households live in the age range of 18-35 years
  • No other cats
  • No cat toys


How to help overcome feelings of anxiety in cats?

The study has shown that an effective antidepressant measure will be such signs of attention from people as the purchase of a new toy. It will entertain and distract your pet from a gloomy mood. Moreover, take another cat into the house. If there is one, why not start a second one: together, they say, it's more fun.


Outside of the game, when tail chasing becomes compulsive and repetitive, it may not be a clear signal of a problem, but it helps to let us know that something may be going on that is causing this pet distress,” she explained. “It can become part of a pet's behavioral vocabulary, where their behavior and body language tell us how they feel at the moment.

Reddit is a site that calls itself the "first page of the Internet". The most popular things on the web get here with the help of users. The process is simple and I will try not to be too complicated.

Reddit is thus a kind of social aggregator of news and content, which is based on the popular vote. The community is known to be very pretentious and tough, but the entrance is harder, because Reddit catches on quickly, through the addiction it creates.

One of the most popular categories is IAmA, meaning Ask Me Anything, where over time many personalities have come to answer the questions of the rulers. Bill Gates and Barack Obama were among the most popular sessions, with the US president even blocking the site due to the large number of visitors.

But let's not forget the aww animal category, which impresses with its sweetness. Bemorepanda collected the top of them.
