How to Celebrate a Pet-Safe Super Bowl Sunday


Will you be hosting a Super Bowl party this Sunday?  No Super Bowl party is complete without a variety of snacks!  Here are a few tips to help make sure your celebration is pet-friendly.

Super Bowl Pet Dangers:

  • Alcohol – Alcohol is toxic to pets – even small amounts can cause vomiting and difficulty breathing.  Be sure to keep any alcoholic beverages in a place where your pet can’t reach it.
  • Chips and Dip – Many dips – like the popular french onion – contain onions and garlic which destroy a pet’s red blood cells.  Salty chips can also cause excessive thirst.
  • Guacamole – Guacamole is made from avocado, a substance that can be fatal to birds.  
  • Ice Cream – Any product with dairy can cause your pet to have an upset stomach.
  • Caffeine – Sugary, caffeinated sodas may be a necessity at your party, but keep them away from your cats and dogs.  These drinks can be toxic to pets and lead to abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Nuts – Certain nuts, like macadamias, can be poisonous.  As few as six nuts can cause your pet to experience muscle tremors and an elevated heart rate.
