Christmas is just around the corner and to ensure your dog can join in on the Christmas celebrations happy, healthy and without accidents it is important to heed a few tips:
- Do not use glass baubles for the Christmas tree. A broken bauble can lead to bloody paws. It is better to exchange the tree decorations for materials made of wood and, if you do not want to do without glass baubles do not place them on the lower branches of the tree.
- Do not feed your dog yeast dough. Yeast dough rises in the stomach and can cause nasty abdominal pain.
- Christmas Stars, mistletoes, pine needles and Christmas roses are poisonous plants and therefore extremely dangerous for dogs. Consumption can lead to stomach problems, cramps, paralysis and liver and kidney damage.
- Road salt and toxic antifreeze also contain toxic substances, such as ethylene glycol.
- Spices like cinnamon and nutmeg smell delicious but are also dangerous for your pooch. These spices can induce vomiting, diarrhoea and shortness of breath.
- Human food often contains ingredients that are toxic to dogs. Chocolate, raisins, grapes, macadamia nuts, almonds, onions and garlic are all dangerous for your dog to eat.
"But what about the Christmas goose? Can I give my dog a tiny piece?"
Even if your dog gives you their biggest and cutest puppy eyes the Christmas goose is never a safe option for your dog.
Small debris and sharp-edged pieces can damage the oesophagus, windpipe and the intestines of your fur nose.
