Dangerous Festive Foods

As the festive season approaches, be sure to keep the following foods all to yourself… and well away from your pets!

Chocolate

Chocolate is highly poisonous to dogs and cats, and can even be fatal! Make sure your selection boxes and other goodies stay somewhere they can’t reach at all times.

Alcohol

Alcohol can make our pets sick and dizzy, so be sure to keep it to yourself this Christmas.

Grapes and raisins

Grapes and raisins, found in sweet mince pies and Christmas pudding, can cause kidney failure in pets.

Xylitol

Xylitol is a sweetener, commonly found in sugar-free sweets, chewing gum, toothpaste, mouthwash and certain baked goods. Check labels of such items carefully, or better still, keep them away from your pet altogether.

Fatty foods

Fine in small doses, but do be careful. Sausages, bacon and other fatty meats can cause stomach upsets, or even lead to obesity.

Nuts

Nuts are a choking hazard, and some can make our pets vomit. Avoid feeding these to your pets, and take extra care when carrying a handful from one room to the other.

Onions

Onions, and other cooking essentials such as garlic and chives, can cause stomach damage to our pets. While you’re preparing meals over Christmas, you may want to keep them out of the kitchen… just in case.

Cooked bones

Bones can cause a great deal of damage if they split, crack or get lodged somewhere they shouldn’t. As famous a dog treat as they might be, it’s often safer to choose something else.

Corn on the cob

Corn is difficult to digest, and the cob poses a choking hazard… once again, it’s better just to avoid this one altogether.

Pet-friendly treats

If you stick to vet-approved, pet-friendly treats, you can provide your pet with the best Christmas…. And risk-free, too!

If you’re concerned, or have any further questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
