You may love looking at your festively decorated Christmas tree with all the shiny presents underneath, but so does your pet.

 

Lynne Ouchida with the Humane Society of Central Oregon says this is a very dangerous time for pets, because they may try to eat everything from ribbons to chocolate to lights.  "We want to make sure that those bones from the turkeys and all the other meats that we have are put away securely, in a garbage can with a lid, or behind a locking cabinet door.  Cats and dogs can open up those cabinets and they are clever. People don't even think that they might eat those bones. We've had dogs arrive and actually vomit up entire carcasses of turkey."

 

Ouchida says with all the people coming into your home, a pet can get scared or overexcited and slip out the door, so it might be good to put them in another room with water, toys and treats to help them stay calm.
