Hanukkah or the Festival Of Lights is a time for family celebrations, along with food and gifts. Remember to keep things safe when pets are around.
Keep the food out of reach.
There are so many foods to enjoy during the eight nights of Hanukkah. Don’t let some of them ruin your joyous occasion with a trip to the vet.
Some can cause upset stomache or health risks.That said, some of your favorites can pose substantial health risks to your pets.
Keep your holiday safe for everybody by keeping the goodies away.
Goodies with onions, sugar, sweeteners, or yeast, and especially chocolates should be kept out of reach.
Make other treats available for your pet if you would like them to join in the festivities.
