Title: Food That Dog Can And Can't Eat In Christmas

Christmas Food Your Dog
Can and Cant Eat
  • When preparing your Christmas dinner, do not
    forget your furry friend. It is a festive time
    for them too in terms of the variety of food they
    get to eat.
  • But not all food is safe for dogs to eat as some
    human foods may cause digestive upsets in them
    and some have severe results like death.
  • Like removing skin from meat, removing seeds and
    stoned from fruits.

Foods- which can be fed!
  • Turkey
  • Small amounts of boneless, skinless white meat.

Cranberry sauce Pure cranberry sauce with nothing
else added like sweeteners or other fruits, nuts
Potatoes Plain mashed or boiled potatoes with
nothing else added (e.g. salt, butter). Potatoes,
no matter how they are prepared or cooked are
very starchy, which dogs can struggle to digest.
Vegetables Some carrot, parsnip, green beans,
Brussel sprouts, broccoli florets (very small
amount only), peas, spinach, cauliflower etc...
Most green or mixed veg is fine for dogs.
Eggs Eggs are a great source of protein, vitamins
and minerals and are good for our dogs health.
Scrambled is a great way to cook eggs for your
dog, but dont add milk, butter or salt of
  • Fruit
  • Can be high in sugar and can also be acidic,
    which can upset your dog's digestion so give in
    moderation and remove the pips/seeds first.

Food- which cannot be fed !
Bird Bones They are hollow and whether raw or
cooked they can easily splinter, making them a
dangerous puncture or choking hazard.
Gravy Very tasty but too salty and fatty for
dogs. They will enjoy their turkey dinner just as
much without gravy. It is best avoided.
  • Onions, garlic and other bulb vegetables (e.g.
    chives, leeks, shallots)
  • Onions are a definite no as they are poisonous to
    dogs. This includes any variant such as onion
    powder. Also avoid feeding your dog other bulb
    vegetables e.g. chives, leeks and shallots.

Herbs and spices Dogs are not used to eating
herbs and spicy foods and stomach upsets may
Grapes, raisins, currants, sultanas These are
fatal to dogs, even in small amounts. Seek
veterinary help immediately if your dog eats
these foods.
  • Mince pies, Christmas pudding and fruit cake
  • Apart from being full of dangerous fat, these
    festive treats contain dried fruits, spices and
    sometimes alcohol.

Chocolate It contains Theobromine which can be
deadly to canines, even in small amounts.
Yeast and uncooked dough It rises and ferments in
the stomach. Not only painful but can be fatal.
Keep yeast and dough safely away from your dog
when doing your Christmas baking.
  • Human desserts and sweets
  • These are way too sugary or if they are
    sugar-free they contain artificial sweeteners.
    The sweetener Xylitol is very dangerous to dogs
    and sugar is bad for your dogs weight and teeth.

Milk and dairy products Take it easy when it
comes to giving your dog any milk and dairy
products. Dogs have difficulty digesting lactose
resulting in upset stomachs.
  • Mushrooms
  • Some are OK but some are not so be on a safe side
    and avoid the same.

Enjoy the festive season but make it enjoyable
for your four-pawed friend too. Merry Christmas!
