Ah, yes, the holidays are upon us in full swing and will be going strong for more than two weeks yet. All you have to do is look around you, talk to your friends, and see how busy your own calendar has become...to realize that the holidays are full of stress. If you think you've been "stressed out" by all that activity, can you imagine what your habit-oriented pets must be feeling amidst all the hoopla? Are pets affected by stress during the holidays? You betcha....
Most pet owners would guess that the most common dog emergencies are severe traumas. However, the fact is that the most common reasons for emergency room visits are frequent and minor problems that just happen to flare up after-hours when regular vets are closed. This leaves emergency rooms as the only available option for treatment.
