How to celebrate your pooch's birthday in style
It’s safe to say that our dogs are part of the family. Three in four dog owners celebrate their pets’ birthdays, as they would any other member of the family. Many throw parties, buy birthday cakes, and merrily sing Happy Birthday to their pooch on their big day. This is a direct outcome of the humanisation we see across the pet industry today. There is a bigger market than ever for pet-celebrations. Here at PurfectlyYappy.com, we understand how important it is for your pet to have a special day, so we provide everything you may need to make it happen.
The trend in dog birthdays sees people all over the UK treating their pets to whatever they desire to give them the best of celebrations possible. However, unfortunately, this trend does often have a dark side. People have been known to feed their pooches human-food which may be harmful to them. Cake, meant for humans, can be dangerous for dogs to eat, especially if they eat in large amounts. They aren’t recommended to eat butter or lard, which is in most cakes, as they don’t have enzymes in their blood which break down fats. When feeding your dog copious amounts of human cake, you may be putting them at risk of being ill, and you won’t be doing their weight any favours either.
