Tis the season to be jolly & we can't wait to celebrate the festive season with our furbabies!
With so much of the festivities based around food and drink, it's important to highlight the foods that are commonly associated with Christmas that can be very harmful to your dog.
Whilst we all know chocolate is harmful to dogs, it's important to highlight this during the Christmas period as often chocolate is left in places it wouldn't normally be such as under the Christmas tree, on the table and in stockings. Make sure chocolate is left out of reach of your dog.
Grapes and raisins are highly toxic to pets and can cause kidney failure. Watch out particularly for foods that contain these such as Christmas cakes, Christmas puddings and mince pies.
Try not to leave alcohol unattended as if ingested it can cause serious health problems for dogs.
Raw bones aren't recommended for dogs as they can cause salmonella. Dog owners should also be aware that cooked bones can split which can scratch the throat, become lodged and damage teeth so it's best to avoid bones.
Although fatty foods are generally harmless in small doses, it's important to be mindful of how fatty foods can negatively impact the health of your dog. It's much kinder to give them a dog-specific treat.
Onions, Garlic, Leeks, Shallots & Chives
These are also foods to avoid as they cause vomiting, diarrhoea and damage to red blood cells.
