Healthy Indulgence

While it can be tempting to include your pet in the festive feasting, be careful not to overdo it. Feeding dogs fatty leftovers can result in pancreatitis, and many fun human foods like chocolate and macadamia nuts can cause serious toxicity. If you want to treat your pet these holidays, consider stocking up on some healthy treats or fun new toys instead.

Safe Travel

If you're planning to hit the road with your furry friend these holidays, make sure that you keep safety in mind. Unrestrained pets can be a distraction to drivers, and are at risk of becoming an additional hazard in an accident. Most areas of Australia require pets in cars to be restrained by law.

Beat the Heat

Higher temperature and humidity in the summer months coupled with more time spent enjoying the great outdoors with their humans can put pets at risk of heat stress, which can be fatal. You can reduce your pet's risk of heat stress by taking some simple steps, like avoiding activity during the heat of the day and providing them with plenty of fresh water a cool, shady place to rest.
