California Veterinary Medical Association Provides Tips to Maintain Peace

and Goodwill Among Invited Guests and Their Furry Friends

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- You have the tree decorated and holiday plans prepared -- then suddenly you get a call from guests who want to bring their pet along to your house. How do you respond appropriately and still make them feel welcome?

"It's not uncommon for guests to bring pets to holiday parties because they consider their animals a part of the family and no longer want to leave them at home," said Dr. Jeff Smith, president of the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA). "Nevertheless, whether you're a pet lover or not, it's always good to be prepared if ever asked to house a four-legged visitor during times of festive gatherings."

The CVMA encourages people to ask the following questions before deciding whether to accept or refuse a pet visitor:

-- If you have pets of your own, how will they react? How will other

guests and young children respond?

-- Is the visit for a short time, a few hours or several days, and what

will that mean in terms of accommodating the pet?

-- How might the breed, size and disposition of the pet impact the type

of event you are hosting?

-- Do you know about the visiting pet's behavior? Is it well behaved, a

brand new puppy or an older animal? Is it accustomed to being around

a lot of people and activity? How might it react to unfamiliar

surroundings?

-- Where would the animal stay? Indoors or outdoors? Confined or

allowed to roam?

-- What if the dog barks too much or the cat scratches furniture?

-- Will anyone participating in the holiday festivities have pet

allergies?

-- Are you willing to risk a friendship if your guests are offended

because you do not want their pet to be include
