Getting ready for the holiday season involves more than trimming the tree and plumping up your credit card bill. It also means making arrangements for your pets and ensuring that you don’t overlook their safety and care in the busy-ness of the holidays.

There are several things to consider for keeping your pet safe and happy this year.

For starters, you’ll want to make sure that while you’re filling your kitchen with delicious smells and your plate with fun holiday snacks, your pet isn’t tempted by foods that might hurt her. Certain foods such as chocolate and alcohol can make your pet sick – or worse. Besides harmful foods, also watch out for other things that may endanger your pet, such as certain plants and decorations or extension cords your pet might chew on.

Also, be sure to make arrangements for your pet’s care if you’re going away to visit family or friends this season. Booking pet sitting services in advance is vital to getting your pet the care she needs while you’re gone. Booking early is important because spots fill up quickly this time of year, and you may not be able to get your favorite sitter if you procrastinate.

So when you’re making plans for shopping, cooking, and celebrating, don’t forget to make plans for your pet!  Book your holiday pet sitting services as soon as possible.

VIP Pets wishes every dog and cat a very merry (and stress- and injury-free) holiday season.
