While you are making plans for the Holidays, please keep in mind these holiday hazards: The bad news is that many pets will end up at the veterinarian’s office this holiday season.

*  Feeding foods that are too rich, fatty, or spicy (or anything your pet’s not accustomed to) can trigger a bout of intestinal upset.
