Most of us know that choco­late is bad for dogs, but the toxic dose for cats is ac­tu­ally far lower. At worst, it can be lethal and, at best, it can up­set the stom­ach.

Raw meats, raw eggs and fish of­ten con­tain bac­te­ria which can cause poi­son­ing.

It might be tempt­ing to give pets cooked bones to crunch on dur­ing the fes­tive feast, but they’re one of the items that can do most harm, as cooked bones are gen­er­ally more brit­tle than raw, so are more likely to splin­ter in the mouth or stom­ach. NICE

Dog’s di­etary needs have re­mained vir­tu­ally un­changed since their time in the wild, so beef, chicken, turkey and plain pork are all likely to cheer up your ca­nine. You can also add veg­gies such as car­rots, peas, broc­coli and leafy greens.
