Vegemite sandwiches, juicy snags, lamingtons and pavlovas may be your foods of choice on Australia Day but none of those hooman versions should ever pass your dogs' lips! 
The salt and sugar content in these foods will not sit well in their stomachs. Worse, acute pancreatitis can occur after a dog eats a fatty food such as barbeque beef, pork, leftover fatty offcuts or cheese. Some human foods like onions and chocolate can be deadly

So why not order some Aussie specialties created for your dogs instead?

It will be a busy day just about anywhere so there are a few precautions to take:

✔️ Make sure you take enough poo bags for the whole day. Not only is it horrible for other people and gives all of us dog owners a bad reputation, but leaving behind piles on the beach can get you an on-the-spot fine!

✔️ You may dutifully slip, slop, slap, seek and slide but what about our dogs? If you don’t supply them with fresh water, some dogs will try and drink from stagnant puddles or the ocean, which is very unhealthy for them!

Fireworks Safety Tips

On Australia Day there will be plenty of fireworks (legal and illegal) which 
are stressful and frightening events for those pets suffering from noise phobia.

✔️ Try and take your dog for some vigorous exercise earlier in the day! Go for a long walk or a game of fetch or chase at your local off leash park. After a good romp in the park, they are more likely to react calmly during the fireworks...

✔️ Keep your dogs safe indoors with access to fresh water and leave the radio or TV on to block out all the loud noises.

✔️ Ensure your pets are microchipped and whether at home or out and about, that they're wearing a current Pet ID Tag with their name and your details, in case they run away in fright.
