1. What are you going to be drinking this holiday? Well whatever it is, remember dogs absolutely should have no alcoholic beer or beverage! No matter how much they might beg for food and drink, alcohol is toxic for your pets and can make them extremely sick.
2. Wear green or be pinched! Unfortunately your four-legged friend was not blessed with a green coat, but you can help them out. If you're going to dye your dog's fur green, make sure to use non-toxic, all-natural vegetable dye. Make sure that the coloring won't affect their sensitive skin and is okay if they lick it off. But beware, if your dog doesn't like their coloring, they won't be showing you any puppy love!
3. Don't want a bad fur day disaster? Try a St. Patrick's Day dog (or cat) costume instead! They can be the most fur-ocious Irishman roaming the streets this St. Patty's. Or maybe they're feeling more like the cutest little four-legged clover, after all it's good luck!
4. Parades, bars and parties will be happening all around town. The city might be going to the dogs, but you and your dog should go for your walk away from bars, parties, and parades. They can be hazardous to your pet and too overwhelming. Take a detour! If your pets are in the house where there is going to be a party, make sure there is a no-disturb area for your pet to relax and stay away from trouble.
Be Safe this St. Patrick's Day!
