Dog owners have been urged to keep an eye on their pets during the Christmas festivities
It may be a time of fun and festivity for the rest of the family, but Christmas Day for dogs often means a disruption of their routine.
Liz Bulbrook, a nutritionist with Baileys Feeds, warns that dogs can become ill from the trappings of Christmas, such as leftovers, tinsel, chocolates and mistletoe.
Liz suggests the following tips:
Some dogs will want to stay out of the celebrations so make sure they can get to their own “quiet area” and be particularly careful with crackers and party poppers.
“No one wants to spoil the fun for people or dogs alike, but consideration to these tips will make for a healthy, happier Christmas for all, ” says Liz.
