The Christmas season is finally upon us which can be a busy and chaotic time for everyone, including your pets. Many things that make Christmas Christmas can pose as a threat to the health of your furry family.
To help you avoid an unnecessary trip to the vet this holiday season we have compiled our top favourite Christmas treats that your pet might enjoy…
Turkey without the trimmings
Cooked turkey or chicken deboned and deskinned are a great source of protein which your pet is sure to enjoy.
Plain mashed, boiled, white or sweet potatoes are a firm favourite with some dogs, providing them with a healthy punch of nutrients.
Sliced carrots, parsnips, broccoli, peas, green beans, courgettes, brussels sprouts, pumpkin, spinach, swede and cauliflower are a tasty low calorie snack and are great for help with training your dog.
Boiled or scrambled eggs can offer both cats and dogs a protein boost.
Your pets can get in on the fruit action with bananas, seedless watermelon and apples which are packed full of vitamins and minerals. Just remember that grapes and raisins are very poisonous!
Finally, remember all Christmas treats are to be given unsalted, unsweetened and in moderation as too much of any foreign human foods could prove a shock to any pets’ system.
