Not all snacks are safe, so choose wisely!
Everyone loves a snack, and our pets do too! We all know how easy it is to toss our furry friends a nibble here and there, simply because we love them and want to share. Unfortunately some of the things we enjoy could actually harm our pets, so if you are enjoying a treat, take care to give your pet a treat that is safe and appropriate, so they can enjoy their snacks as much as we do.
If you're not sure what is safe for your pet, ask your veterinarian for advice on what is acceptable and what should be avoided. It may be that your pet has special dietary needs or is taking medication for a particular condition that would require even more limits on pet-appropriate and healthy snacks, so be sure to check if you are unsure. Our pets rely on us to give them good care, so make sure you use good sense in all areas, even with something as simple as "goodies".
