BARBECUE SAFETY TIPS
There's nothing better than a barbecue when the sun is shining, and your favourite four-legged friend is likely to be very excited by the delicious-smelling food and just waiting for something to fall off the grill – however, barbecue food can be really dangerous for pets for the following reasons:
Most barbecue foods contain high salt levels which can make pets extremely thirsty, cause high temperatures and sometimes even seizures!
Animals can get all sorts of nasty bacteria from meat that is not properly cooked including salmonella and listeria which can result in very upset stomachs at the very least.
The bones in barbecue food can get stuck in your dog’s intestines or stomach and even splinter inside which can cause a whole host of internal damage.
The carbonisation on the outside of burnt meat can cause stomach upsets for our pets and some experts have even cited it as a cause of cancer.
Make sure you have plenty of dog treats and food on hand to let your pooch enjoy the barbecue fun without risking their health!
