Thanksgiving through New Year's Day can be a joyous time of the year, but our pets, just like us, can become overwhelmed and stressed. One of the best gifts we can give to our pets is a stress free holiday! It is important to think about the festivities through their eyes; everything we love about the holidays can be scary for them. So what can we do to help them?

PLAN AHEAD

A sudden change in appearance to a pet's surroundings can be stressful, so decorate gradually over a week or so. Be sure not to change the locations of litter boxes, bedding, feeding stations and such...

This wonderful family came in wearing Santa hats to bring very generous and thoughtful gifts of food, treats, blankets and toys. All of us at AHNA were thrilled to see them arrive because many needy pets will benefit from the generosity of these Santa Clauses.

The holiday season is a time when parties, families, and gifts are centered around food. And there in the middle of it is your dog. Who can resist the high speed tail wag, pleading eyes, and the feed me dance? It’s not easy for you and your guests to say no, but it is in the best interest of your pet to not indulge them with tasty holiday treats. Many treats can not only add extra calories and unwanted weight gain to your pet but can also cause vomiting, diarrhea, a more severe illness called pancreatitis or potentially life-threatening toxicity. Bones can cause obstructions, pierce the...

The stores are already decked in boughs of holly (or more accurately, plastic sparkly lights) and you are probably thinking about getting out your own holiday decorations. But for those of us with pets, before we drag those totes out of storage, consideration must be given to how to adorn our houses so that our efforts survive our four-footed companions. Yes, from Christmas trees to strands of garland, holiday decorations are a pet toy paradise from our pet’s perspective. Trimming the tree means nothing hanging from the bottom branches that will break when...

We had a spooktacular time during our Happy Howl-o-ween Pet Trick-or-Treating on Wednesday, October 26th! Thank you to all who came and celebrated with us!

This annual event was held in our Halloween decorated Education Room. Treats of all kinds were available for our human and pet “Trick-or-Treaters,” but we made sure the treats for pets were low calorie and healthy. It was fun to see which treats the pets loved the best. We even had take-home treats for our feline and canine friends who preferred to stay at home away from the festivities. 

Although costumes were not...
