You might have already sent your wish list off to Santa, but have you thought about what your pet might like to find under the tree this Christmas?
From doggie mince pies and cat Christmas crackers, to bacon flavoured bubble machines and luxury homes for your guinea pigs - our vet Dr Scott Miller is here to make sure your pet gets in on the festive fun.
Scott's top tips
- The oils in Christmas trees can be mildly toxic, causing stomach upsets, and the needles themselves can get stuck in your pet's paw or throat
- Be careful of fairy lights which dangle and are tempting chew items for pets
- Keep the door shut when you are wrapping presents otherwise your animal might ingest something they shouldn't
- Poinsettias, mistletoe and holly are Christmas favourites, however they are dangerous for pets; with varying levels of toxicity, the side effects depend on how much of the plant is consumed
