Make Your Home Merry & Safe for Pets

Holiday Home Pet Safety Tips

We hope you’re enjoying the holidays in a new Taylor Morrison home this year. While you’re celebrating and decking the halls, take a little time to make your environment safe for your furry buddies with these pet safety tips.

  • Twine used to truss turkeys and roasts can be life-threatening if swallowed by a pet. So can plastic wrap and foil that smells of food. Dispose of these items in a securely covered trash can.
  • Poinsettias can cause upset tummies and mistletoe is down-right deadly. Keep holiday plants out of reach.
  • Put your Christmas tree on a table or inside a playpen.
  • Pass on the tinsels. It’s just too tempting (and dangerous) for curious kitties.
  • Even small amounts of chocolate, grapes, onions, raisins, sugar-free gum, candies and alcohol can be toxic to pets.
  • Post the ASPCA’s 24/7 Animal Poison Control number near your phone: (888) 426-4435.
  • Keep baby wipes handy to remove harmful road salts from your pets’ paws.
  • Crate pets or put them in a safe, secure place before guests come over to prevent stress, accidents and escapes.
  • Protect pets from burns (and your house from fires). Don’t leave lit candles unattended. Use a fireplace screen. Put electrical cords where they can’t be chewed.

An ounce of pet accident prevention beats an expensive trip to the vet.

Happy Holidays from your friends at Taylor Morrison!
