Pet Pause: Entertaining with pets around the holidays


by Natalie Sparacio

WAKE UP WISCONSIN (WAOW)--  When you entertain this holiday season, there are certain recommendation about your pet to keep in mind.

Make sure you let your guests know they should not feed your pet table food. Turkey bones can break apart and be fatal, keep animals away from hot oil if you deep fry your turkey. Also, Dolores tells us not to give your pets raw veggies, because they can be difficult to digest.

Check with your guests to see if anyone is allergic. Dolores recommends putting a sign up in your home and keeping your pets in a room. She also says, you can give your guests doggy treats to feed your pet, so they don't beg.

Dolores recommends feeding pets 15-20 minutes prior to your party, so animals are filled up. Also, make sure to take the garage out promptly so animals don't get into it.

If you have any questions you want answered about pets, Contact Dolores at: 

Every Wednesday on Wake Up Wisconsin we have a special segment called "Pet Pause".
