He also said how Petco has created some helpful tips on how to keep your pets safe during this busy time of year.  Actually, they have developed Petcoach.co where you can speak with a live veterinarian to ask any pet safety questions in real time.

Some of his pet safety tips include:

  • Being careful with ornaments and tinsel and keeping them out of reach
  • Be sure to puppy proof the house
  • Mistletoe and Poinsettias can be dangerous
  • As the door may open more, be mindful of your pet's whereabouts
