Foods to avoid feeding your pet during the holidays

Foods to avoid feeding your pet during the holidays

It's that time of year again! Gathering with family and friends and indulging in festive foods may keep us merry and bright, but those foods can make our pets very sick. The following foods can be toxic or even fatal if ingested and should be kept well out of a pet’s reach:

  • Chocolate

    Chocolate made up 10% of toxicity-related claims in December*

  • Xylitol

    Xylitol is an artificial sweetener found in gum, candy and baked goods.

  • Fatty Foods

    Like turkey skin, stuffing and gravy.

  • Onions and Garlic

  • Alcohol

  • Cooked Bones

    They can splinter into fragments and become lodged or puncture the stomach.

  • Grapes and Raisins

    Grapes and raisins made up 6% of toxicity-related claims in December*

  • Raw Dough

    (for baking)

  • Macadamia Nuts

  • Avacados

Have peace of mind this season with a Petsecure plan, and ensure that your pet can get the best veterinary care if they get sick during the festivities.
