Valentine’s Day Gifts for Dogs Safety Tips
Canine safety is never the most fun or relaxing topic.
However, for new dog owners in particular, useful advice can go a long way to make sure this Valentine’s Day is safe and fun for you both.
Be sure the size of the gift or treat matches the size of your dog’s mouth and chew strength.
And it’s not just a matter of the dog’s physical size.
Make sure if you have a dog that overeats, you separate these treats into portions.
Avoid the No-No’s
Chocolate, lilies, xylitol (a sweetener), festive wrappings like ribbons and bows, balloons, and medication are all common reasons pet owners call the veterinary ER on or around Valentine’s Day.
Supervision Is a Safety Must
Whether you and your pooch have kept company for many years or just met, supervise your dog around any new toy or treat on Valentine’s Day.
