Super Bowl is the biggest football game of the year. Friends and families gather during this time of the year, but this kind of gathering is not purely safe for your dogs.

There are several aspects of a Super Bowl party that are plain dangerous for dogs, such as the loud cheering, unfamiliar faces, and smells of gameday goodies. Pet safety during the event only requires a little planning and preparation. The following will help keep your pet secure for the coming game.

Food Hazards

Many typical menus at Super Bowl gathering includes salty and rich foods. While it is tempting to give some to your pets, their stomachs cannot tolerate the spices, cheese, or excessive salt in the food. They can suffer from vomiting, diarrhea, or poisoning.

These snacks are examples:

  • Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are a must in every Super Bowl. However, if your pets got a hold of these, cooked chicken bones can break and become lodged in their throat or digestive tract.

  • Toothpick Appetizers

Toothpicks appetizers with meat and cheese smell good, even the lingering smell on the toothpicks can tempt your dogs to eat them. Toothpicks can poke and damage your dog's throat.

  • Alcohol

Your dogs' bodies cannot process alcohol. If they accidentally drink them from discarded cups, it can cause nervous system issues, vomiting, diarrhea, and hypothermia.

  • Chip Bags

Discarded chip bags can cause suffocation.

 

Garbage Disposal

Dogs are naturally attracted to smell. Improper disposal of leftovers might cause your dog to raid the garbage. They might chew on plastic cups and utensils which may cause an upset stomach. Be sure to feed your dogs healthy food like raw dog food ahead of time to avoid garbage raiding.

Stress and Anxiety 

Your dogs might get stressed out because of all the loud noises and many people around. Food and treats with CBD are proven to relieve the stress of your pet during this kind of gatherings.
