PetPals Say - Be Aware, Some Christmas Foods Can Be Harmful to Pets

Published: 1st December 2020 09:07

Pet carers PetPals Wirral West, who are based in Neston, have asked us to share a timely warning with AboutMyArea readers, to help keep everyone's pets safe this Christmas.

Did you know that many of the products we bring into our homes, especially for Christmas, are highly poisonous for cats and dogs? Please be vigilant this Christmas, to avoid an unnecessary trip to the vets, or worse.

PetPals - some Christmas foods can be dangerous for pets

Highly Poisonous for your pets

Christmas is a time when many of our homes are stocked with our favourite festive foods and it's all too easy for people to forget that many items in our homes at this time of year, can be highly poisonous, resulting in an emergency trip to the vets to get your pet's stomach pumped or, in some cases, much worse.

Dogs should avoid:

  • Chocolate
  • Currants/Sultanas/Grapes
  • Christmas pudding
  • Christmas cake
  • Mince pies
  • Holly
  • Mistletoe
  • Poinsettia
  • Alcohol
  • Nuts
  • Cream
  • Cooked Bones
  • Blue Cheese
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Yeast
  • Coffee
  • Salt
  • Chewing Gum
  • Cat food

Our feline friends aren't totally risk free when it comes to Christmas either; as the following list will confirm.

Cats should avoid:

  • Pot plants - daffodils, iris, hyacinth, amaryllis, lilies
  • Mistletoe
  • Cooked turkey bones
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Chocolate
  • Nuts
  • Blue cheese
  • Christmas cake
  • Christmas pudding
  • Mince Pies
  • Alcohol

Visiting friends and family over the festive period and haven't booked your pet care yet? Contact Petpals to check their availability. Email wirralwest@petpals.com or call Jayne on 07957 455012.
