Christmas Foods Your Dog Must Avoid!
01 . December .2022Katy van suilchem0 Comments
With Christmas comes the return of many of our favourite holiday foods. These festive treats may be an essential part of the season for humans, but they can be dangerous for your dog. Cobbydog offers treats, such as Paddywack and Milk and Cheese Bones, so your dog can join in the Christmas snacking, all while avoiding a trip to the vet!
As the festive season gets underway, here are 5 Christmas foods your dog must avoid and what we recommend as an alternative:
- Mince Pies
Mince Pies are extremely dangerous for dogs. Sweet mince meat contains currants, raisins and sultanas, which are all highly toxic and can result in sickness, diarrhoea and, in severe cases, kidney damage.
Instead, treat your pet to a Cobbydog Bacon and Cheese toastie!
Even in small amounts, chocolate is another very dangerous food for dogs. The festive season is an excellent excuse for humans to indulge in chocolate, but it should never be given to your dog.
To keep your dog busy and distracted from the box of chocolates sitting on the table, why not treat them to a Cobbydog Pigs Ear?
- Christmas Pudding
Similar to Mince Pies, Christmas pudding contains currants, raisins and nuts. This traditional dessert is also often soaked in alcohol, which can also be lethal if consumed by dogs.
Avoid an upset tummy by giving your dog one of Cobbydog's Large Bones.
Sweets, such as candy canes, contain xylitol, which can be extremely dangerous if consumed by your dog. Therefore, all sweets and candies must be kept away from your dog!
Instead of Sweets, treat your dog to a small handful of our dried meat pieces.
Although not all nuts are dangerous for dogs, some, such as macadamia nuts, are. Nuts are also very high in saturated fat, which is always good to avoid. Nuts are also choking hazards and could be dangerous if swallowed.
Avoid choking hazards by treating your dog to some Milk and Cheese small bones.
