Niagara Food Festival

September 28, 2011

The annual Niagara Food Fest is taking place this upcoming weekend in downtown Welland. Be sure to show your support for our local culinary exhibitors by coming out and trying a variety of their delicious offerings. Although it may be tempting to give your dog a taste of what you’re eating you really shouldn’t do it. At the Main West Animal Hospital we end up seeing far too many dogs with upset stomachs after an event like this. I’m sure your pooch loves the taste of barbequed ribs or corn dogs but fatty table scraps like this can lead to episodes of vomiting, diarrhea and Pancreatitis. It’s not worth it for the little nibble they get. If you’re visiting the festival with your dog make sure you bring some of their dog treats from home so that they can enjoy something extra special as well. Keep an eye out for Dr. Aron Bhan and say “hi” if you see him, he’s sure to be there over the weekend.
