Holiday Feasts And The Hidden Dangers for Your Pets

With the arrival of the holiday season, many of us are looking forward to sharing quality time with our loved ones - including the furry ones.

But many of the foods served during holiday meals can pose a danger to our pets. That is why this issue is dedicated to some of the dangers of holiday dining. Our feature article, top ten list, and emergency sections discuss why some foods should be kept away from pets at all costs, as well as some of the healthy alternatives that we can feel safe sharing with our pets so they don’t feel left out.

Bon appétit, and happy, healthy holidays to you and your pets!
