It's Christmas! Okay so it isn't quite Christmas yet but that doesn't mean we can't be jolly and start dreaming of all the yummy foods we can eat! And I'm sure your beloved fur-baby will be thinking the same thing come Christmas day when they can smell all the delicious food cooking. But what Christmas food can we and can we not feed Pets?
If you're like my family and always cook too much food at Christmas be watchful of those sly paws and put plates and dishes over the freshly carved meat as soon as you leave the room as your pet will be ready to pounce.
Maybe this year you could make up a bowl for them to sit down and join in the festivity with you? Here are our top do's and do not's to feed your furbaby this Christmas!
These foods are all on the NO board because they can cause serious and sometimes fatal health risks for your pets. Keep a watchful eye out for your pets, especially when you are prepping the Christmas dinner.
So that's all well and good I hear you say but what CAN I feed my pet for Christmas?
Pets At Home have said that in small quantities your pet is allowed to indulge in:
But remember no matter how cute or how big those puppy-dog eyes get, this should only be a small amount of food given so they can enjoy the festive fun. This should no way be substituted for their dinner. Human food although a fun treat - on the very rare occasion - should not be a substitute for your pets regular diet (even at this time of year when everyone's diet goes out the window!) a small treat is quite enough for them, even when your furbaby doesn't think it is quite enough.
