  • Pet Safe Christmas Dinner

    Pet Safe Christmas Dinner

    Most of us can agree, the best part of Christmas day is the food. With feasting being such an important part of the special day, it's easy to think your pets are missing out on all the fun! Many of us will feed our companion animals scraps from the table, or even make them their own Christmas dinner out of leftovers, however it is important to remember that not everything on the dinner table is safe to share. 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. When it comes to our pets and food, it’s all about moderation, so be sure keep the festive treats small and then your pet can enjoy their very own Christmas meal this year, without any nasty tummy upsets or illness.
