Most of us like to have the occasional adult beverage during the holidays…whether it is wine, beer, non alcoholic beer, egg nog, or an Irish Coffee, some of us like to unwind with a drink at our holiday events. But we need to be careful of these drinks around our pets. We should never, and we should remind our guest to never, leave our drinks unattended around our pets. They will sniff and slurp these smelly, attractive drinks before we can even react.
Also, be sure to lock all medications away. Medications are colorful and have odd smells that could attract our pets. The ambitious pet will even go into someone’s purse if they want something bad enough, so make sure your guests secure their medications as well.
