One of the most iconic parts of the holidays is by far all of the incredible food that seems to be everywhere you turn. Between the sweets and treats, savory seasonal dishes, and the warm and toasty cocktails, it's certainly easy to celebrate the season with your taste buds. However, what about your furry friends? When it comes to holiday food for pets, the good news is your pals can join in some of the foodie fun.
The most important thing to remember if you're going to let your pet indulge in some of your favorite holiday foods is to know the facts. It's vital to know which bites are safe for your pet’s food bowl and which ones you should avoid feeding to your pet.
Although it's typically best to avoid feeding your pets table food, sometimes you don't mind breaking the rules for a special occasion. Enjoying a few holiday favorites with your pets can be a way to make the season merry and bright for your pals.
If you decide to share some holiday foods with cats or dogs, then opt for some of these classics.
Keep in mind, although these foods are safe for pets to eat, give them to your animal companions in moderation. Just like humans, your pets can have too much of a good thing (like when you drink too much egg nog at the company Christmas party). Remember, above all else, you want to give your pets a safe holiday!
Of course, with the good comes the bad. While some human foods are safe for pets to consume, many can be toxic and even deadly. Unfortunately, some of your favorite holiday foods pose quite a few hazards to dogs and cats.
While some foods on the naughty list can cause serious issues for your pets, others might only cause mild symptoms. Still, even mild symptoms can make scooping your cat’s litter box particularly unpleasant. Therefore, no matter what, avoid feeding any of these holiday foods to your furry companions.
Keep a close eye on your pet if she eats something dangerous. Call your vet immediately for guidance or Animal Poison Control at (888) 426-4435. Follow the instructions they give you and seek medical attention as soon as possible if the situation calls for it.
It’s certainly okay to let your pets enjoy some of your holiday food favorites, just do so safely. Keep the servings small; so, no going back for seconds. Sorry, Fido!
