Keeping pets safe around holiday decorations

The holidays are all about breaking out the decorations to make your home feel festive, but if you have fur babies, you should be aware that some festive items can pose a risk to them. . Michigan Humane’s Anna Chrisman stopped by “Live in the D” to give some tips when it comes to decorating and thinking about your pets.

“When it comes to decorations and pets, the things that we want to remind people, many of the things that we love to have, can actually be dangerous and a potential safety hazard,” Chrisman said. She has these tips for pet parents.

🐶 Sweep pine needles from living trees.

😺 Consider a barrier around a tree.

🐶 Poinsettias, lilies, Christmas cactus, and mistletoe can be poisonous.

😺 Be careful with the flames on the candles.

🐶 Consider battery-operated candles.

Chrisman brought in a sweet, active, 3-month-old puppy named Jelly Bean who is looking for a loving home. The Mike Morris Law Firm will cover all adoption fees if you take home Saturday’s pet from Michigan Humane.
