How to protect your furry friends from potential holiday hazards

Roanoke Valley News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — While some people are eagerly waiting for the holidays, pet owners should make sure to keep their furry friends’ safety a top priority when it comes to decorating.

However, the Roanoke Valley SPCA has some tips to keep your family pet safe this holiday season.

For example, a decorated tree can be seen as a new play area for a curious kitty — especially if your furry friend loves to climb — so make sure your tree is sturdy and not easy to tip over.

In addition, experts recommend placing pet-friendly ornaments at the bottom of the tree.

Pet-owners are also encouraged to use a heavy plastic cord protector if you have any small bulbs, wires, or electrical cords, in order to keep your furry friends from chewing on those dangerous decorations.
