|Gabby & Kirby, AGA Orphans|
Keep your pets safe and happy this holiday season. Here are six of the top holiday hazards to watch out for. Happy holidays from all of us at Adopt A Golden Atlanta!
The Christmas Tree
The stagnant water in the tree stand may contain fertilizers and is a breeding ground for bacteria which will cause stomach upset if your dog drinks it .Also every Christmas, the ER is full of dogs having surgery to remove ornaments and lights from their stomachs.
We all know not to feed our dogs chocolate, grapes, raisins and anything sweetened with xylitol, but be aware of the lengths to which an enterprising Golden will go to chomp on something yummy? Make sure to keep your pets away from the table and unattended plates of food, and be sure to secure the lids on garbage cans and leave the leftovers for the humans. NO HUMAN FOOD OR ALCOHOL.
Caution houseguests to keep medications behind closed doors.
Punctured batteries can cause severe burns to the mouth and esophagus.
Hustle and Bustle
Dogs are lost every year at Christmas and New Year’s when doors and gates are accidently left open. Be sure your dog has his collar with contact info tags on AT ALL TIMES. If your dog should be lost, remember to call AGA immediately. Consider providing your dog with a quiet separate room away from the hubbub.

Thanks for everybody's votes this month for BC4C / Boot Camp 4a Cause! It’s a fitness boot camp that donates 100% of proceeds go to local causes. 50% of Jan, Feb, March proceeds go to Adopt a Golden! Great way to get fit for the new year and plenty of time to get fit to be seen at the Golden Gala on Feb 26th!
