Celebrating the Season with Holiday Pet Treats
The holidays are all about spending time with loved ones, but along with all of the gatherings comes all of the food. Most of our traditional holiday fare is not healthy for our pets, and sometimes can even be toxic to them. So does your pet have to completely forgo the treats this festive season? Not at all!
Your team at Ten West Bird & Animal Hospital has some surprisingly delicious and pet-friendly holiday pet treats that are sure to please your best friend.
