There are plenty of holiday hazards for pets around the house at Christmas time, including batteries- powering lights, decorations and presents, it is important to keep any batteries out of reach of your pets!
There are a number of risks with batteries depending on the circumstances. The contents are irritant and may cause burns and gastrointestinal upset if chewed. If ingested whole, batteries can cause an obstruction in the gut.
