Let the countdown to Christmas begin!

December has arrived, and even though SAT is non-denominational (well, we believe in dog), we can't help but be dazzled by fairy lights, snow globes, Christmas trees and just the feeling that 2013 is coming to a close and summer is upon us. 

Plus its just nice to open the mailbox and find colourful envelopes instead of those awful ones with plastic windows.

Its a good time to remind everyone that whilst the festive season is magical, pet owners should be mindful of the risks of ingestion of foreign bodies (e.g. tinsel in cats, Christmas decorations), the ingestion of for-human-only treats (grapes, sultanas, onions, garlic, chocolate, coffee, xylitol-sweetened baked goods), over-indulgence (there's a reason veterinarians treat a lot of diarrhoea on boxing day) and the warm-weather hazards like heat stress and tick envenomation.
