Holiday Decorations and Pets


Holiday Decorations and Pets

Hi, I'm Matt O'Donnell. I'm a surgeon with Central Texas Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital.

The holiday season is upon us and many pet parents plan to include their furry companions in the festivities, but there are some decorations you need to watch out for.

When it comes to the live Christmas trees, be careful of the water. Stagnant tree water is a breeding ground for bacteria, and your pet could end up with nausea or diarrhea if they swallow any.

Avoid mistletoe and holly. These two festive plants can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and even cardiovascular problems and kidney failures in cats. It may be best to opt for artificial plants.

Say goodbye to tinsel. Kitties love this shiny toy that's easy to bat around, but a nibble can lead to a swallow, which can lead to an obstructive digestive tract, severe vomiting, dehydration, and possible surgery.

When serious illnesses do happen, CTVSEH is there for you. They're specialists and doctors offer a range of in-depth surgical procedures, testing equipment and diagnostic capabilities.
