Christmas Often means Treats
But it's important to understand what is and (more importantly) what's not to be fed to your furry friends.
Some no-nos to give to our dogs and puppies over this time: Nothing too fatty - crackling, fatty ham, skin, no drippings (incl. gravy) as this can lead to pancreatitis. No raisins/sultanas/currants (grapes) - fruit cakes or chocolate. And no onions/garlic – these are often in stuffing.
For cats it usually safest to keep to the same rules. Also, lilies are very toxic to cats and can lead to kidney failure so keep them away from the Christmas lilies.
For treating our pets, Pet Milk is a great idea as it is lactose free. For dogs, VitaPet Duck Tenders are super tasty and can be given to dogs of all ages. Try a longer lasting Dog Treat, such as the VitaPet Rawhide Liver Barrels for a bit of peace while you unwrap the presents.
Finally, dog and cat toys are a great choice. The nice thing about the VitaPet dog toys, is that there's a handy dog size indicator on pack to help you decide which size toy will be best for your pooch. For cats, VitaPet has a catnip mouse which vibrates when tail pulled, or the ever-popular feather wand
