Here are some tips from the GSPCA to keep your pets safe. Please keep them away from -

Alcoholic beverages

Chocolate (highly toxic to pets)

Coffee

Mouldy or spoiled foods (please ensure all waste is disposed of and stored safely away from your pets)

Salt

Chicken or Turkey bones (as they can splinter)
