Make sure your pet doesn't have any access to treats, especially those containing chocolate, xylitol, grapes/raisins, onions or other toxic foods.

Nothing would be worse than spending Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day at the animal hospital.

Luckily, if you’re aware of what to look out for this holiday season, you can avoid any worry at all.

Dog experts are issuing a warning ahead of the holidays for foods your pup needs to look out for. Obviously, chocolate is bad for dogs, but did you know there are tons of other foods that could cause serious damage to your four legged friend?

Here are some tips on how to keep your dogs safe over the holidays:

  • Ensure human treats are out of sight, reach and smell
  • Don’t let your dog eat the following things
    • Christmas cake
    • Christmas pudding
    • Mince pies or chocolate
  • Don’t let your dog drink
    • Drinking chocolate
    • mulled wine or any alcohol
  • Avoid these foods when letting the dogs have scraps from the table:
    • onions
    • leeks
    • garlic
    • shallots
    • chives.
    • These cause diarrhea, vomiting and damage to red blood cells
  • Watch out for holly berries and misletoe. These cause vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy

 

Merry Christmas!
