We’re urging dog lovers across the UK to keep their much loved pets safe this Christmas and have put together a list of items that can cause your dog harm at this time of year.
Food A number of food items can be harmful to dogs and these can cause a number of different symptoms, ranging from vomiting and diarrhoea, to more severe effects such as seizures or kidney failure, depending on what is eaten. Foods that should be completely avoided include:
- Raisins, currants and sultanas
- Christmas cake and Christmas pudding
- Fruit cake and stollen
- Mince pies
- Macadamia nuts
- Blue cheese
- Shallots and chives
Mouldy foods, very rich, fatty foods and alcohol can also harm dogs so should be avoided. Turkey, goose and chicken bones can also easily splinter, particularly when cooked.
