Christmas Safety Tip’s for our furry friends

From festive decorations to joyous parties, there’s a lot to enjoy during Christmas, but there’s also a lot
of ways your pet can get hurt.


Holiday Plants

No kisses under the mistletoe with your pet, please! Mistletoe and other common holiday plants, such
as Christmas Roses and holly, are toxic to dogs and cats. It’s safest to deck the halls with artificial silk or
plastic plants.


Gift Wrapping

Presents look festive under the tree, but ribbons, bows, and wrapping paper can spell trouble for your
pet. If your pet gets at them, they could choke on or swallow them, which can cause internal damage or
an intestinal blockage. Remember that the stuff packed inside those gifts can be harmful too. For
instance, pets can choke on Styrofoam peanuts or shredded packing paper.


Christmas Trees

While holiday trees can brighten up the holidays, they can also pose a danger to your pet. Start by
making sure your tree is stable and can’t get knocked over by a curious cat or inquisitive canine. In
addition, keep your pet from drinking tree water, because it can contain harmful bacteria or fertilizing
chemicals. And avoid using tinsel, which can be swallowed or choked on. Tinsel is especially tempting for
cats who may try to play with it and take the whole tree down instead.

Wires and Lights

Hide, tape down, or otherwise secure all wires and light strands, so your pet can’t trip over, get caught
in, or chew on them. My dog Lady chewed through a wire once, and it was awfully frightening for the
both of us! I rushed her to the emergency clinic, and she thankfully made a full recovery.



These can look like harmless toys to cats and dogs, but they can be very harmful, especially if they get
into your pet’s mouth. Clean up any broken ornaments as soon as possible to help keep your pet from
stepping on or eating any of the pieces. Also, watch out for the hooks used to hang ornaments and other
decorations. They can injure your pet’s mouth and lead to internal injuries if swallowed.


Christmas Treats

There can be lots of goodies around during Christmas that aren’t so good for your pet. For instance,
chocolate desserts, brownies, and treats sweetened with Xylitol are all harmful to your pet.

Christmas Parties

Holiday parties can be loud events with a lot of people coming in and out of the house. Consider setting
up a quiet and out of the way space for your pet to retreat, especially if they’re not big on socializing. If
you’re the host, you might want to ask a trusted friend or family member to keep an eye on your pet, so
you can focus on your guests without worrying about your four-legged friend’s comfort or safety.


Dear Grandview family and pets- Please read!!

What should I do if I find a tick attached to me or my pet?

Don’t panic. Remove the tick with a good sharp set of tweezers and protective gloves. There are also
various products for tick removal on the market of variable efficacy. DO NOT attempt to burn or
suffocate the tick as this causes the tick to release additional, potentially infectious, saliva into the
wound. Observe the feeding site for signs of infection.

What are the dangers of ticks?

Ticks are vectors of several diseases, including Lyme disease. They attach to any part of the human or
animal body and begin transmitting disease within 24-48 hours.
Common Tick-borne Illnesses

There are several tick-borne illnesses that can impact dogs. Here are some of the most common ones:

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease can cause generalized pain, lameness, or limping that can appear suddenly swollen joints,
and fever. Many affected pets don’t show symptoms right away, or the symptoms will come and go. If
the symptoms aren’t apparent, the disease may be widespread throughout the body by the time the pet
is diagnosed.


Much like Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis causes lameness, joint pain, fever, lethargy, and loss of appetite.
Infected pets may develop other conditions including a periodic loss of platelets, which can cause
bruising and bleeding.


In the early stages of the disease, infected pets may have a fever, swollen lymph nodes, respiratory
distress, weight loss, bleeding disorders, and, occasionally, neurological disturbances. The pet will then
go through a sub-clinical stage and will not display symptoms of the disease. If the infection goes
untreated, clinical Ehrlichiosis occurs because the immune system is not able to eliminate the organism.
The pet may experience bleeding, anemia, neurological problems, and swollen limbs. In some cases, the
bone marrow fails and the pet may require a blood transfusion.

It’s important to note that these tick-borne illnesses can have varying symptoms and severity, and early
detection and treatment are crucial for the well-being of affected dogs. If you suspect your dog may
have been exposed to ticks or is showing any concerning symptoms, schedule an appointment for

Should indoor-only pets receive flea and tick preventatives?

While indoor-only pets have a lower risk of encountering fleas and ticks compared to pets that spend
time outdoors, it is still possible for them to be exposed to these pests. Therefore, it is generally recommended to provide indoor pets with flea and tick preventatives. Indoor cats can become infected  with fleas by potting soil from indoor plants, other pets (like dogs) that go in and out, and your shoes/clothing from walking.

Remember – the best defense against fleas, ticks and the illnesses they bring is prevention. Make sure your pet remains on preventatives year-round.

To our GrandView Family… PLEASE READ

Effective at your next visit with us, we will NO LONGER be allowing your pet into our facility on a retractable leash. There are many dangers to having your dog on a retractable leash in general, as well as issues with pets on leash within a confined area such as our lobby.
 – Dogs on retractable leashes are not under control
 – The cord itself can be a hazard to you, other people OR other people’s pets.
 – The locks on retractable leashes ALMOST ALWAYS fail.
Our goal…as always… is to keep you and your pet’s safe while you visit us. If you do not own a traditional leash, please make our staff aware prior to entering the building with your pet and a slip-lead will be provided for you to borrow.
We ALL look forward to seeing you and continue to keep you and your pet’s best interest in mind. THANK YOU – Dr. Lisa and Staff

Basic Obedience Classes:

Level 1 Obedience Class is a 6 week course for puppies and dogs of all ages and sizes.

If you haven’t taken this class, it is a great class for new puppies and new puppy owners as well as an excellent refresher course.  Basic Obedience is the core for all other classes including agility and Canine Good Citizen as well as Therapy Dog International.

  • Learn basic obedience commands and ways to use them in practical situations, along with different techniques to discourage undesirable behaviors.
  • Students are given time at the end of each session to play and socialize.  Positive socialization is imperative to your pet’s development.
  • Puppies should be at least 12 weeks of age to attend.  All dogs need proof of current rabies vaccine.

Level 2 Intermediate Obedience Class is a 6 week course.

This is a 6 week course designed to put all your dog’s basic skills to work in practical situations, and we will often meet in different locations to do so.  This is also a prep course for your dog to take the Canine Good Citizen or Therapy Dog International test.  Your dog NEEDS TO KNOW how to sit, stay and come when called to take this course.

Call us today for details! (716) 608-6383   Space is LIMITED.  You do not have to be a client of GrandView Animal Care Center to attend!


Morgan Benaquist – “I can’t say enough about Dr Lisa and her staff. After having a negative experience at another vet office, I stumbled upon Grandview and made an appointment, and now I would never dream of going anywhere else in the future. My furbaby was very sick, but Dr Lisa and her team were always more than accommodating, going above and beyond in every way. I was a frequent visitor due to his condition, and everyone developed such a great bond with him, always excited to see him when I brought him in again. On days I didn’t have an appointment, they were calling to check on him and see if there was anything we needed. Just an amazing personal connection/care that you scarcely find anymore. And although my situation ended in having to say goodbye to my furbaby, I can’t imagine going through this anywhere else. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do. Our community is so much better for it.

Elizabeth Poole — “Excellent staff, beautiful clean facilities. They made my princess feel comfortable and safe. It was not easy picking a new vet after I moved, I am so glad I chose this one!”

Debbie Helmbrecht Cordone — “Such a nice atmosphere and great staff! Everyone is so friendly and caring. It’s great to have you in such a convenient location.”

Lisa Regan-Grosso — “Wonderful group of people! Animal lovers at their best!”
