With Christmas festivities well and truly in full swing, here’s a gentle reminder of what to avoid sharing with your pup during this joyous season.
- Chocolate: Ensure those chocolate advent calendars remain out of reach for your inquisitive furry pals!
- Grapes and raisins: Often nestled in Christmas cakes, these can trigger kidney failure in dogs.
- Stuffing: Commonly containing onions and garlic, both hazardous to dogs.
- Cooked Bones and Fatty Meats: Best avoided due to the risks of splintering bones and pancreatitis.
- Christmas Ham: High in salt and fat, it’s not the ideal treat for dogs.
- Alcohol: Keep all alcoholic beverages far from your pet’s reach.
- Macadamia Nuts: Even small amounts can cause weakness and tremors in dogs.
- Avocado and Stone Fruit: Contain elements harmful to dogs, leading to stomach upset.
- Nutmeg: Often used in holiday recipes, but toxic to dogs, causing various health issues.
Instead of sharing potentially harmful treats, let your furry friend indulge in their own special Perfect Bowl meal, ensuring they feel included in the festive cheer while keeping them safe and healthy.
