Celebrating Christmas with Your Best Friend!

What's more wonderful than gathering around with family, loved ones and friends to enjoy the Christmas? Our pets also enjoy the time spent with the family fully and deserve all the extra pampering!

Tips for Christmas Preparations

The weeks leading up to Christmas are often full of activity. The house is cleaned, meals are prepared, and Christmas decorations are put to their places. A Christmas tree is brought in, which can a big surprise, at least for a cat or a dog celebrating its first Christmas. When glogg is heated and almonds are roasted during the Christmas prepations, it is good to remember that raisins should not be left too close to the edge of the table. Raisins are not good for dogs or cats and at worst can cause acute kidney failure. Even the almonds and other nuts we enjoy at Christmas can cause stomach upset for dogs. So why not give your dog a tasty Best Friend Bones 3in1 chew roll with chicken or BF Bones 3in1 twisted roll with duck fillet, they are simply delicious chews and a great way to pass the time! 😄 The cat friend, on the other hand, can enjoy Bilanx Stix steak sticks, from which you can neatly chop smaller pieces e.g., to fill an activation toy!

The smell of Christmas cookies spreads around the house! It's time to bake Christmas bread, gingerbread, and all other foods and pastries for the Christmas celebration. At the same time, there is a pet at home who would love to serve as a taster – true, right? Most of us know that chocolate is not suitable for dogs and cats. Chocolate contains theobromine, which is very toxic to pets. The darker the chocolate, the more dangerous it is for a dog or cat. Christmas bun dough should not be given to a pet to taste either. The yeast in the dough can swell the stomach and, when fermented, at worst cause alcohol poisoning. Our tip is to give your dog friend extra Hoops & Loops treats instead of dough! These crispy & crunchy treats are guaranteed to taste well even for your picky dog friend. The cat friend in the family would prefer one of the delicious Bilanx Happy Snax treats. These tasty, sugar-free cat treats are guaranteed to be a tasty snack for the great hunter! 😁

Time before Christmas flies by quickly. Food are being prepared, hams are fried, and salmon is seasoned. I guess you can also give a small piece of ham to a dog or cat friend, right? Christmas ham contains a lot of fat and salt, and large amounts of neither are good for your pet. Even traditional meatballs are not so suitable for dogs and cats. In most meatball recipes, onion is added to the dough, which is not suitable for either pet to eat. Onions contain allicin, in dogs allicin damages red blood cells and can lead to anemia. Treat your dog friend with a stuffed Best Friend Bones chewing roll, either chicken or duck flavored, and hey, even the dog will have something to do while preparing the Christmas dishes 😉 The cat friend, on the other hand, is guaranteed to be happy with the delicious Bilanx steak sticks!

Guests coming home for Christmas can also be an exciting experience for your pet. Remember to make sure that the dog or cat friend always has their own, safe area where they can calm down in the middle of all the commotion. In order for the pet to spend as relaxed and joyful a Christmas as possible, it is good to try to keep the routines, including outdoor activities, somewhat similar to everyday life. On Christmas Eve, after all the preparations, it's time to sit down at the Christmas table (or in its immediate vicinity 😄 ) and wait for the Santa Claus.
