New Year’s Eve celebrations can be a fun way to socialize with friends and family. After all, it’s the only time of year you can blow streamers and throw confetti without having to explain yourself. As a pet owner, it’s important to take extra precautions as you bid farewell to 2016 and welcome 2017. It can be easy for your dog or cat to slip out the door in all the excitement or to feel overly anxious because of it. We recommend making sure your pet’s microchip information is up-to-date before New Year’s Eve.
What could be more adorable than a puppy or a kitten? When you give someone the gift of a new pet for Christmas or Hanukkah, it seems like the magic of fairy tales. Puppies and kittens are innocent, energetic, joyful, and curious. You hope that the gift recipient will hug his or her new pet and live happily ever after. If only that were the case. When someone receives a pet as a holiday gift in a movie, that’s where the story ends. You never see the challenges that come later.
