What are the dangerous substances pets should avoid during the holidays?- Christmas tree water, which may contain fertilizers and bacteria that can upset the stomach if ingested - Electrical cords - Ribbons or tinsel, which can become lodged in the intestines and cause intestinal obstruction—this most often occurs with kittens - Batteries - Glass ornaments. Of course, there are usually a lot of delicious goodies floating around during the holidays, too—be sure to keep human treats inaccessible to your pets.
