Furbaby Tips during the Festive Season

Make a Holiday Activity Plan

Between unwrapping gifts, swimming, eating pavlova and playing board games, it can be hard to give your pet the attention they deserve during Christmas. Make a plan beforehand to ensure they are entertained all day long.

For kitty-cats, especially indoor kitties, aim for two five-minute play sessions throughout the day using dangly toys, balls, scrunched paper, cardboard boxes, interactive/treat toys, and laser pointers.

For doggos, make some frozen, stuffed Kong treats with peanut butter or salt-reduced stock as a treat or consider organising a poochy playdate or, if they’re not a fan of noise, keep them in a cool, quiet room with food, water, toys and bedding until the guests head home … or pass out.


Christmas Food and Your Pet

With all the yummy Christmas foods coming out, an important reminder about which Christmas delicacies you can safely share with your pets.

Dangerous items that must be taken off the menu include; cooked bones, chocolate, raisins, grapes, onions, garlic, highly fatty cuts of meat, and foods sweetened with xylitol.

Safe seasonal foods include lean cooked meat (e.g. white turkey meat), plainly cooked veggies such as pumpkin, peas and carrots, and small amounts of cut fruit such as melon, mango, bananas or blueberries.
