Winter Holiday Hazards

Holiday Ornaments
Glass ornaments seem like an obvious hazard to anyone if they get broken, but other decorations are often overlooked. Tinsel is extremely risky because to cats it looks like a shiny toy  and can cause severe damage or death if your cats swallows it. Also, some snow globes have been found to contain antifreeze. Amounts as small as one teaspoon of antifreeze can be deadly to your cats and dogs.

Holiday Foods
The holidays bring many delicious baked goods, candies and dinners, but it is dangerous to share these with your pets or keep them in your pets reach.

  • Foods containing raisins and grapes (fruitcakes), which can cause kidney failure.
  • Sugar-free candies can contain a sweetener called xylitol, which is toxic to dogs and can cause liver failure and a life-threatening drop in blood sugar.
  • Chocolate contains a highly toxic chemical to dogs and cats that can cause seizures and heart arrhythmias.
  • Fatty meat scraps can cause pancreatitis, which leads to abdominal pain, vomiting and bloody diarrhea.

Plants
Poinsettia plants are commonly known, but generally are only mildly toxic to pets. There are other toxic plants to worry about that are more severe, such as lilies, holly and mistletoe. Lilies are one of the most dangerous plants for cats because ingestion of one or two leaves or flower petals can cause sudden kidney failure.
