BBQ Advice

25th Jul 2018

BBQs are a great time to catch up with family and friends, but please keep pets safely looked after to make sure they also enjoy this fun occasion.


Be Food and Drink Savvy

  • Corn on the cob and even bones can cause obstructions.
  • High-fat foods can cause inflammation of the pancreas, which can be serious.
  • Alcohol is dangerously toxic to pets and should be kept out of reach.

Be Rubbish Savvy

  • Aluminium foil, kebab skewers, firelighters and even plastic wrapping can be dangerous.

Be Environment Savvy

  • Keep your pets at a safe distance from a hot barbecue and avoid nasty burns
