With the festive season and celebrations ongoing, it may be hard to pay close attention to what your pet has been indulging in.
“Here are a few signs to know if your pet is Bloated or Constipated”
Retching or trying to vomit unsuccessfully.
A swollen, hard abdomen.
Chest may appear swollen or “stick out” more.
Below are a list of foods your pet should not eat.
Candy (particularly chocolate—which is toxic to dogs, cats, and ferrets—and any candy containing the toxic sweetener Xylitol)
Coffee (grounds, beans, and chocolate-covered espresso beans)
Gum (can cause blockages and sugar-free gums may contain the toxic sweetener Xylitol)
Onions, onion powder and onion flakes
Potato leaves and stems (green parts)
Tea (because it contains caffeine)
