Though the holidays may look a little different this year, we’re here to make sure they’re just as special for you and your pets. Here are five tips to keep in mind this holiday season:
1. Plan ahead for the holidays.
Will you be boarding, hiring a pet sitter, or traveling with your dog? Don’t wait until the last minute to get the right accommodations ready. This year, it’s especially necessary to be proactive in ensuring your holiday plans are set well in advance.
2. Make sure you have your pets’ medical records handy!
Whether you’re taking your pup with you, to boarding, or hiring a pet sitter, it’s important to have your dog’s medical records available. You can request your pet’s medical records and share them directly with your caretaker through the Pawprint app.
3. Be careful what table scraps you share.
While sharing some foods with your dog is okay, you’ll want to steer clear of feeding them any foods with additives or sugars. If you’re not sure whether you should share a particular food, do some research online before feeding the food to your dog to avoid any upset tummies.
4. Create peaceful moments.
Holidays are all about bringing love and comfort to one another, and that includes our pets. But the holidays can also be stressful. If your dog tends to get nervous in new settings, or with new people, consider trying natural calming supplements to help them relax and enjoy some peace.
5. Get the special pets in your life a special gift.
