We all love Christmas, but to your pets it’s just another day. So here are a few points to remember…

  • Try and stick to your pet’s routine; walking and feeding times shouldn’t change just because it’s Christmas!It might be cold but I still need walking!

  • Don’t be tempted to overfeed your pet over the holidays.

  • Offering your pet the odd treat is fine, but if they’re eating a lot of food they’re not used to (e.g turkey), it might upset their stomachs.

  • Ice can become packed in a dogs’ paws causing pain, so gently brush any ice or snow off the paws when you get home from a walk.

  • You might have new toys for Christmas, but don’t forget your pets still need their fair share of attention!

  • Never feed your pet chocolate, raisins, sultanas or currants (so definitely not Christmas cake or Christmas pudding) or grapes.

But above all, HAVE FUN!

Hello my name is Sarah. I put together animal action magazine (with the help of Dougal, my gorgeous cockerpoo pooch!). I also have two cats - Coco and Tom. Dougal LOVES Coco, but is a bit scared of Tom. He knows what Tom's claws can do! I love all animals so working for the RSPCA is perfect for me. I can't wait to start talking to you all over this brilliant blog! 🙂

      Hi Alice! Good to hear from you! Don’t worry, I’m going to run another Write On! competition, but I’m just not sure when. It will be this year sometime though, so hang on to your story and I look forward to reading it sometime in the future!

      Celebrity interviews are a bit more tricky because they take such a long time to do and as it’s a really small team that works on animal action, we just don’t have the time. I know what you mean though, I love to read which celebs are animal-mad! 😉

        Thanks for understanding Alice. Also, I might change some of the rules in the Write On! competition and include poems for all age categories, so you will be able to enter your poem as well as your story. Hurray! 😉

      Hi Lucia, as we are not vets, we’re not able to tell you if an animal is ill or not. However, I suspect this dog was either just a bit nervous about being left alone outside a shop or perhaps a bit chilly. Dogs also shake when they’re excited, so it could be that it was about to go on a lovely walk with its owner and it was very excited!

    hi Sarah! T once had and AMAZING encounter with a munjack (i think thats how you spell it!)well i was at a tree in a field and then i heard a rustle behind me. I turned round and there, staring at me was a munjack! then, as though relaxed, it looked away from me then it looked at me again. it kept doing this, then finally it turned and galloped away from me! how cool is that!!!
