Vet Advice For Christmas from Vet, Dr Scott Miller
Bark! The Herald Angels Sing!
At Barking Mad Mansions we're gearing up for Christmas. The tree is up and the baubles are being prepared.
Christmas season should be full of tinsel, chocolate, and social events... but all of these can cause some issues for your four-legged friend. So before we launch into the festivities we asked our friend Dr Scott about how we can keep our dogs and cats safe, happy and healthy at Christmas.
Give your dog the attention they deserve
Find time in the busy day to give your dog a much needed walk to stretch their legs and get some exercise. Make sure that they have plenty of toys and treats to keep them entertained at home whilst you're busy unwrapping presents and catching up with Great Aunt Mildred
Keep the decorations away from pets
Cats love playing with tinsel - but the glittery string can cause real problems if it eaten... So keep those festive decorations out of the reach of mischevious paws.
Your Christmas Dinner can make your dog poorly
Keep the choclates, mince pies and stuffing away from your dog - not only are they full of fat, but they can all make your dogs very unwell. Stick to some Top Dog Turkey if you want to treat your pooch to Christmas Dinner
Why not stock up on some Tuck Shop treats for your dog's stocking?
