Keep pets safe during the Christmas season

While the Philippines’ Christmas season has been up and running since September, the eating part of the holidays is just starting to kick in, so the the Pet Food Institute (PFI) is sharing tips on how pet owners can keep their pets safe during the holidays.

Even with the ongoing pandemic and the required social distancing putting a damper on the partying, Noche Buena tables are sure to be covered in the food of the season. Families who will have a feast are reminded to properly discard leftovers which may contain high levels of fat and sugar to prevent their pets from consuming these unhealthy foods.

Owners who are planning to give their pets treats for Christmas should remember to properly read the label and check with their veterinarian if said treats are healthy for their pets. Raw hides are a common gift to pets around this season, but these should be given with caution. These popular treats may cause choking and digestive obstructions which can lead to severe complications.

It is imperative that pets get a well-balanced diet despite the festivities. A well-balanced diet that provides pets their nutritional needs must be at the forefront of their daily intake — whether the holidays or just a regular day — to ensure their overall well-being. Coupling this with daily exercise will help prevent obesity, diabetes, and other serious health issues for pets.

The Pet Food Institute —  the lobbying organization of the US pet food industry — is committed to educating pet owners about proper pet nutrition to keep pets healthy and happy. Through its local initiative, “Well-Fed, Well-Nurtured” campaign in partnership with the Veterinary Practitioners Association of the Philippines (VPAP), it seeks to advocate responsible pet ownership in the Philippines.
