LOS ANGELES — If you have a furry friend at home, vets want you to be extra aware of what you’re feeding them from the dinner table this holiday season.

According to Dr. Sehaj Grewal, a veterinarian at The Melrose Vet in Los Angeles, it’s OK to have your pets around the dinner table, but it’s better to keep them in an enclosed area to prevent a potential trip to the vet.

“It is common, unfortunately. But most of the cases I have seen usually resolve with supportive care,” Dr. Grewal said. “But really bad cases have to be hospitalized and be on an IV drip to keep them hydrated.”
