Natural raw dog food that puts a spring in their step!

When the holiday season rolls around, it’s natural that you will feel tempted to give your dog a large portion of food from your plate. After all, you love your furry friend and want them to join in the festivities, right? However, many of the foods that humans eat can be bad for your dog. For example, dogs cannot tolerate salt as well as humans can, can easily choke on splintered bones or damage their throats while chewing, and many foods are toxic and will leave your dog with an upset stomach or diarrhoea. If your dog consumes too much food in bulk, it could even be fatal.

Dogs do not eat human food regularly (and shouldn’t because of the differences in how well their bodies can tolerate certain minerals), and if you give your dog food it isn’t used to, it can upset their stomach. This is true when switching suddenly to any new diet, but especially true if switching from dog food to human food. Below, you can find our list of common holiday foods to avoid, tips for keeping your dog safe this season, and alternative holiday foods you can consider providing instead.

Common Holiday Foods to Avoid

  • Meat Skins
  • Fats
  • Cooked Bones
  • Chocolate
  • Alcohol
  • Nuts
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Dairy
  • Grapes and Raisins
  • Cranberries
  • Puddings and Pies

Many dogs are curious about shiny holiday decorations or wrapped presents, which may be left on the floor where your dog usually looks for toys. Keep your floors clean throughout the holiday season. Watch your dog closely when they are around shiny decorations, and discourage them from trying to lick or eat any decorations, presents, or ornaments that you may have around. The ink used on wrapping paper, a box of chocolates under the tree, the glitter and glue common in decorations, and any glass that your ornaments may contain are all things that can lead to pain and illness in your pet.

Alternative Food For Dogs

If you want to feed your dog a special meal this holiday season, consider offering them complete raw dog food instead. We sell a variety of complete raw dog food online at Albion Meat Products for puppies and adult dogs alike, and also offer a variety of raw dog food treats, such as dried tripe and rabbit ears with fur, that your dog is sure to love even more than any human food.

When it comes to raw dog food in the UK, ours is the best of the best. We use premium cuts of meat, emphasize flavour, and offer a complete range of nutrients in every serving. If you are planning to serve your pet raw dog food for the first time this holiday season, we recommend switching from traditional dog food to raw dog food slowly, serving your dog a little at a time each day alongside their current food. By gradually lessening their servings of their old food, you can prevent any upset stomachs caused by a sudden switch in an entire diet. Once they get a taste for our complete raw dog food, your pooch is sure to never look back. This holiday season, give your dog the gifts of delicious flavour, premium health, expert-made food, and all your love.
