• BBQ’s are a summer kiwi classic. As tempting as it may be, avoid giving bones to your dog. Bones are a common cause of gut obstruction which needs emergency surgical intervention. The rule for bones is this: ‘Large enough to chew on, but not chew up’. They should also be uncooked to prevent splintering shards.
