As you buy Christmas toys for your dogs, be sure to look carefully at the quality of the toys you are buying! It isn’t difficult to find safe toys, you just have to know what to stay away from. Buying toys that aren’t safe can cause serious issues.
If a toy has parts attached to it, be sure all the parts are securely on the toy and don’t look like they will fall off with time or wear. Little parts can fall off toys and get lodged in a dog’s mouth very quickly.
Also be careful what squeaky toys you buy. Many discount stores sell toys with small squeakers that puppies can easily chew off and they can become a choking hazard or become lodged in their intestines requiring expensive surgery to remove.
