A Dogs Christmas Dinner - Christmas

 Dennis, Head of Re'Tail' at Bone Idol just wanted to bring to your attention a few risks that lurk in foods this festive season.

 

 

While Dennis is sure you will all be aware of the no chocolate rules for dogs by now. But unfortunately us dogs are unable to eat everything our humans may be tucking into.

So please make sure your human, and any humans that visit you this holiday, know the rules! 

Chocolate

It's worth repeating this warning, with so much of it around during the festive period, it’s better that everyone knows!

Stuffing 

While yummy in their tummy for most humans the herbs and spices can be harmful to our digestion and the onions can be poisonous

Nuts

A Christmas staple for many a coffee table but some nuts can be toxic for animals so best placed out of reach from naughty noses.

Onions

As mentioned in the stuffing, these are poisonous for us dogs so anything that included them should be avoided as a cheeky treat.

Christmas pudding and Christmas cake

A classic and they smell so good! But they are packed full of raisins and sultanas which are poisonous as are their juicier version grapes. 

Turkey skin and bones

The skin is fatty and may cause loose stools or diarrhoea. While the bones can splinter causing harm to sensitive mouths or worse insides!

What to look out for:

Symptoms of poisoning in dogs can vary tremendously depending on the type of poison they’ve encountered. These signs can range from vomiting to breathing difficulties to drooling.
Ingested poisons can often cause sickness, diarrhoea, agitation and possibly lead to organ damage, heart issues and even death.
If you are worried at any point that your dog has managed to eat anything on this list or your dog as any of the symptoms mentioned above, then please contact your Vet immediately. The sooner treatment is given the better.
