The Get Leashed Guide to Holiday Spirits for Pets

From Pawsecco to Pinot Meow

By Si Si Penaloza

White or rosé? Will Pawsecco make your pet’s Christmas wish list? The festive month of December tends to be a most boozy time of year. Most of us have no doubt wondered what it would be like to kick back over a few pints with your pet. Well wonder no more. More and more retailers ― from Aldi to Amazon ― have introduced a “doggy beer” and Pawsecco just in time for the festive season. This December 31, you and your four-legged pal can clink to the new year together with a glass of bubbly. Worried you pet can’t hold her drink like your Aunt Lavinia? Rest assured helicopter paw parents, none of these beverages contain any alcohol or grapes ― both of which are dangerous for pets ― and they get their wine-like coloring from beet juice. Moreover, many of these pet mocktails are packed with healthy ingredients.

Pawsecco

What a time to be alive! For special occasions like Christmas morning or New Year’s Eve, treat your dog or cat to a flute of Pawsecco. Pet people are far more health-conscious these days, and the makers of Pawsecco have been sure to meet target audience expectations. These healthy, herbal infusions are made with 100% natural herbs, using Elderflower, Nettle, Ginseng and Lime Flower and were created with the consultation of veterinary experts. This healthy infusion is obviously non-alcoholic, non-carbonated and grape-free, providing the perfect treat for those on four feet.

In introducing the new beverage to Pebbles, perhaps take baby steps. Pour a bit of Pawsecco over food as the perfect “pairing”, then serve on its own as a refreshing drink. It is available in both Pet-House White and Pet-House Rosé. Suitable for all dogs and cats over the age of 4 months. Much like hosting people over for cocktails, ensure fresh drinking water is also available for your pet. Maximum serving is 1 bottle per day, although you may wish to serve less for toy or miniature breeds. Pawsecco is non-alcoholic, so at least one of you will be sober enough to pull up the covers at bedtime.

Bottom Sniffer

Happy, healthy dogs are at the heart of Woof and Brew and natural, healthy herbal ingredients are at the heart of their line up. Ranging from health-focused tonics to some of the most unique treats in the market, all the products have been developed with the advice of veterinary experts. Woof and Brew’s Bottom Sniffer, a non-carbonated doggy beer, contains helpful herbs such as Bladderwrack (Seaweed) and Nettle. Both ingredients which are rich in iron and iodine and known to be great for skin pigmentation and coats. The proprietary recipe also calls for Rooibos and Dandelion, which are known to be rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
