Tree Decorating Safety Tips for your Pets

  • Secure tree to both the floor and ceiling, if possible, to prevent it from falling. 
  • Vacuum up needles; they can cause choking and puncture intestines. 
  • Place glass ornaments and those with metal hooks on higher limbs.
  • Avoid decorations made of cookies, candy canes, gingerbread, popcorn or cranberries.
  • Be sure pets can’t get to the water in the tree stand reservoir; it contains harmful fertilizers and bacteria. 
  • Avoid tinsel; ingesting it can cause an intestinal blockage.
