By Stephanie Springer - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The holiday season is a happy time of year for most of us, but it's not exactly a safe time of year for pets.
Fatty foods like ham and bacon can cause Pancreatitis and should not be fed to pets.
Also chocolate and grapes are toxic and potentially fatal to animals.
Potpourri contains harmful chemicals and should be kept far away.
And watch your pets around the tree because ornaments, wiring and other dangers may be tempting to them.
"Last year we had a little toy breed dog eat a glass Christmas ornament of a tree, he ended up being okay but he was a surgical candidate for a while," said Ivy Chupp, Veterinarian.
Plants are actually among the most dangerous things for pets. Watch out for poinsettias, Lilies and Christmas cactus.
