Christmas is a wonderful time of year – but not always for your pets!

Every year the GSPCA has reported incidents of pets putting their safety at risk.

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

Alcoholic beverages

Chocolate (highly toxic to pets)


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


Chicken or Turkey bones (as they can splinter)


Please Use Safety Collars On Your Cats
