Pet Friendly Festive Food

Pet Friendly Festive Food

Most of us can agree, the best part of Christmas day is the food. And your furry friend needn't miss out. But before you go slipping your pet some scraps from your plate or serving them up the leftovers, make sure the food that you're giving them is safe. Most festive food is fatty, rich and can sometimes even be poisonous to cats and dogs. However, there are certain treats on the table that are fine to feed your pets for a special festive meal. Here's a run down of what to serve up your four-legged friend this festive period...

 

 

Safe For Dogs
  • Plain white turkey meat with the bones removed 
  • Plain salmon (not smoked)
  • Plain boiled or raw carrots 
  • Plain boiled parsnips 
  • Plain boiled or steamed green beans
  • Plain boiled or steamed brussel sprouts 
  • Plain boiled or steamed broccoli
  • Plain boiled or steamed peas
  • Plain boiled, wilted or raw spinach
  • Plain cooked cauliflower

 

Safe for Cats
  • Small pieces of boneless white meat such as turkey and chicken 
  • Plain salmon (not smoked)
  • Plain swede mash 
  • Plain boiled or steamed brussel sprouts
  • Plain boiled, steamed or raw carrots
  • Plain boiled parsnips

 

The main foods to avoid for pets are grapes, raisins, nuts, onions and chocolate. If you're unsure if a food is safe then it is best to avoid it entirely. Always be sure to feed your pet an amount that is suitable for their weight and size - what may seem like a small treat for us is a big treat for them! And don't forget to take away a little of your pets normal food to make sure they aren't over indulging. If you've got a little time to spare, why not make your dog their very own Christmas treats by following our recipe here
