What part of your Human Christmas Dinner can your Dog Eat?

There are many different options for your Christmas dinner, a debate that ranges from turkey, to ham, so what of these foods are harmful to your dogs and what can be used as a tasty treat for your doggo? 

Turkey

Dogs can eat turkey, but you must make sure that it is boneless and skinless. The skin on a turkey holds a lot of fat that is not good for your dog’s digestive system. The bones are of course dangerous in terms of choking, but also they can cause internal damage if swallowed. So, if you have turkey at your dinner table this Christmas, you can set aside some turkey for your four-legged friend as long as you make sure that it is skinless and boneless. 

Gravy

Gravy is not a recommended product for your dog due to it being fatty and salty. The fat and salt content of gravy can cause digestive problems, sickness, and an upset stomach. However, in moderation it can be OK. If you are having gravy with your Christmas dinner and plan on adding some to your dog’s dish, then you have to make sure that you don’t add harmful products to it such as onion and garlic. However, it is much safer for your dog if you buy them some gravy dog food that is specifically for dogs, so that they can enjoy a tasty Christmas treat.

Stuffing

You should avoid feeding your dog stuffing as it contains food that is harmful and toxic to dogs such as onions. Onions are extremely toxic to dogs and you should never feed them onion, or food that contains onions, under any circumstances. The spices and herbs that are in stuffing can also cause diarrhoea and stomach upset.

Christmas Puddings and Mince Pies

You should never feed your pupper Christmas pudding or mince pies due to the raisins and other dried fruits inside. Raisins are extremely toxic for dogs, with the possibility of kidney failure, and should never be consumed by your pet. They also have a lot of spices in them that can cause stomach upset.

Pigs in blankets

Pigs in blankets are way too high in fat and salt for your beloved pet. Pork is safe for dogs to eat in moderation if it is lean cut and properly cooked, but pigs in blankets are too high and fat, perhaps unwrap the bacon from them and then you can feed them to your dog. 

Toxic Foods for Dogs

The following foods should be completely avoided, otherwise a trip to the vets could be in order!

Chocolate

We all know that chocolate is a toxic food that can be fatal in some cases with even just a small amount. Something that many don’t know is that dark chocolate is even more dangerous to dogs than lighter chocolate. 

Onion, Garlic, and other Bulb Vegetables

Onions, garlic, and other bulb vegetables also need to be avoided at all costs. They are highly toxic and can cause damage to red blood cells when digested. As mentioned before, it is not uncommon to have garlic and onion in your gravy, so if your gravy does contain these ingredients, you should avoid giving it to your pet at all costs.

Macadamia nuts and walnuts

Something less known to be toxic to dogs is macadamia nuts and walnuts. These nuts are not uncommon around Christmas time as part of festive treats and buffets. They are highly toxic and can cause seizures in dogs, so make sure that you dog doesn’t get their paws on them. 

Dairy

Dairy products are another thing to avoid at all costs. It is often the case that dog owners don’t know about the harmful effects of dairy because it is assumed that milk is safe for them as they had it as puppies. However, dogs struggle to digest lactose and this can cause an upset stomach which is not a nice present for a dog around Christmas. 

Tasty Human treats for your dog at Christmas

Cranberry juice

Cranberry juice is a safe for your dog to eat as long as it is unsweetened and contains no harmful additives. A bit of cranberry juice on top of your dog’s skinless and boneless turkey will be a nice tasty treat for their Christmas dinner.

Potatoes

We all love our carbs, and your four-legged friend will love them too. Just make sure that you give them either boiled or mashed potatoes that don’t contain a lot of salt or butter. Make sure that you don’t go overboard and give them too much though. 

Vegetables

Although you may consider giving brussels sprouts to your dog as a crime, they are one of the many vegetables that are common around Christmas time that are perfectly safe for your dog to eat. Some of these include; parsnips, brussels sprouts, green beans, and peas. Just remember that all these foods should be eaten in moderation as too many may cause an upset stomach.
