3 Thanksgiving Safety Tips for Your Pet

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year to have friends and family over to your Derby Park apartments in Grand Prairie. As you know, pets are welcome at Derby Park, and there are plenty of outdoor areas where pets can enjoy the beautiful Texas weather, especially during Thanksgiving time. But keeping your pet safe during Thanksgiving still needs to be a priority, which is why these three Thanksgiving safety tips for your pet will come in handy.

1. Instruct Guests Not to Feed Your Pet

Some foods that are perfectly safe for humans to eat are not suitable for your pet. These foods may make their stomaches upset or can cause other symptoms that make your pet feel unwell. Let guests know that your pet has plenty of regular pet food available to enjoy on Thanksgiving day, and that they should not feed your pet table scraps.

2. Isolate Shy Pets

If your pet is shy or fearful around people it doesn’t know well, there’s no reason to try to force them to interact with your Thanksgiving Day guests. Instead, set aside an area in your Grand Prairie apartments where your pet is isolated from all the crowds. You could close off your bedroom or a second bathroom, and make a comfortable sleeping area for your pet to enjoy until the festivities have died down a little. Be sure to place a food and water bowl in the area so your pet doesn’t have to wait to eat their Thanksgiving Day meal.

3. Put the Collar On

On Thanksgiving Day, your pet may be confused by all the strange guests walking into your apartment. Just in case your pet manages to escape, make sure they are wearing their collar and tags. If they do get out, whoever finds your pet will be able to contact you and return your pet.

Although you understand that Thanksgiving Day is about friends and family, your pet may be confused with all the extra activity. Keep them safe with these three pet-safety tips. Contact us today for more ideas about helping your pet enjoy life at Derby Park apartments.
