Keeping Your Pomeranian Safe Over The Holidays

By Lee Dobbins

The holidays are a time for family, good cheer and parties, but don’t forget about your Pomeranian in all the hustle and bustle!

The “end of the year” holidays in particular can present some health hazards for your Pom. Here’s some ideas below on how you can get through this season with a healthy pet and peace of mind.

One thing that is very important at any time of year but especially during the holidays when hours may be cut short is to make sure you check your vet’s holiday hours and emergency contacts and have the information easily accessible.

Take precautions when decorating with plants. Your Pomeranian may chew on household plants, and many, including mistletoe and some poinsettias, can make your pet very ill. Make sure your holiday greenery (and “red-ery”) is out of your Pom’s reach.

Take care also with the Christmas tree. If it is real, be sure that your Pom cannot drink the water or chew the branches. Many modern live trees have been sprayed with chemicals that may be toxic to your little friends.

Use only unbreakable decorations at the bottom of your tree, so there is no danger of your dog jumping up or rubbing against them and resulting in broken glass on the floor that he can cut himself on, or worse, digest.

Be very, very careful about candles. Your Pomeranian, in his excitement, could knock over a candle! Place glass “hurricane lanterns” or other attractive covers over candles to protect your home and your pets.

New Years Eve is a fun time for all, but your little Pom might become frightened by the traditional firecrackers and other noisy merriment. Some dogs may be severely traumatized by fireworks, be sure to leave them inside if you go out to celebrate. If you are having people over, make sure you put your Pom in a safe and comfortable place away from the party fun.

If your Pomeranian is sensitive he could get stressed out about the changes in household routine during the holidays, especially if you are stressed yourself. Some dogs respond to stress by becoming hyper or hysterical, and some simply retreat.

Most of all, make sure you spend some special time with your Pom during this time of year. Happy Holidays!
