Pets, Pine Needles and Trees

Make sure that you clean up fallen pine needles around your tree regularly. If eaten, these needles can puncture your pet’s intestines. Make sure your tree is well secured for your pets, for people and for your delicate décor. You can anchor your tree to the wall, using strong cord or rope. Also, make sure that your pet can’t access the tree’s water

Avoid letting your dog off the leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm, dogs can lose their scent and easily become lost. More dogs are lost during the winter than during any other season, so make sure yours always wears ID tags.
