Hazards that dogs face at Christmas

Posted by Eileen on Friday 24th November 2023 at 14:16:03
Tips on keeping your dog safe and well over Christmas.

Don't give your dog turkey bones (or any bones) in case they splinter and puncture the intestines.

Keep garbage out of dogs' reach. A dog will eat tinfoil, or plastic that has been wrapped round meat.

Christmas tree decorations are dangerous if swallowed. Puppies taste EVERYTHING! Keep the following away from dogs: fairy lights, candles, electric cables, glass baubles, tinsel, ribbon, pine needles, plastic kids' toys, the water at the base of the Christmas tree, and tiny toys from crackers. 

The noise from crackers can make a dog jittery.

Tinsel can block and puncture a dog's intestine. Chocolate, even cooking chocolate, is bad for dogs.

If the dog smells sweets, it may swallow wrapper and all! Sugar-free gum that contains Xylitol is bad.

Onions, grapes, and macadamia nuts are bad for dogs, so don't give the dog left-overs. Plan the meal so there are NO left-overs! Or give the excess to the poor. Freeze it till you can get it to the church soup kitchen.

Christmas cake that has raisins, alcohol and sugar is bad for dogs. Alcohol can make a dog sick, weak and can cause a coma. Ask guests to keep drinks up off the floor. Make sure pets have a quiet place to retreat to when the house is full of strangers. Be considerate of elderly relatives who may be visiting. Don't let a dog knock them over or trip them up. Toddlers can tease a dog, so be prepared to have a safe place for the dog.

Hang-over medicine that contains Tylenol, and some other medicine is poison to dogs. Keep all human medicine locked away! Pick up any pill dropped on the floor.

Poinsettias, holly, and mistletoe berries may make your dog sick. Many household plants are toxic.

Tie the Christmas tree to a window frame in case a cat climbs up or a dog knocks it over.

This year, let's take time off from the stress of Christmas and go to a joyful church service! Look online or in the newspaper to find out the times of the special services on Christmas day!
