As we enter December many of us are tentatively starting to get ready for Christmas, but there are a few things to think about for your pets this holiday season. Whether your pet is on the Naughty or Nice list, read our top tips to get your furry friends through the festivities.
Fight for freezer space
If you’re a raw feeder, this time of year always puts an extra strain on your freezer. But don’t panic as our shops are only shut for three days over Christmas, followed by two days at New Year – please see our opening times to plan your pet food shopping.
If your pet can only have a particular flavour or brand of food due to allergies or illness, you can always pre-order enough to cover you for the festive period, but stagger collection dates from the warehouse over the two week period.
And if you’re too busy to pop into the shop you can always have a delivery to save time. Finally, if you’re going away at the end of the year, you can even order a national delivery to arrive half way through your holiday.
Pet Safety at Christmas
While we get excited about decorations, presents, festive food and house guests, the whole thing can be hazardous and overwhelming for animals. Remember that many of our festive treats are poisonous to our pets, and the change in activity and noise levels can be unnerving. Read up on ways to help the four-legged members of the family cope this Christmas here.
Don’t forget your pets when it comes to presents this Christmas. We offer pre-filled stockings to hang on the fireplace, or a selection of festive toys to go under the tree. If you really want to get your pet into the festive spirit, we have an array of Christmas-themed jumpers, bandanas and accessories. Check out the Christmas page on our online shop or come in store to see the full range here.
If you would like to treat your pet to something traditional at Christmas, try one of Naked Dog’s Turkey & Cranberry 1kg tubs of raw food. Or if you feed dry food, then Carnilove’s Reindeer flavour could add a seasonal twist to dinnertime. If you are a little more daring, why not treat your dog to a turkey foot!
