(SPOT.ph) It's completely normal for fur parents to celebrate their baby—the furry friend who has brought them joy, tugged on their heartstrings, and maybe even held them together, especially during the darker days of the pandemic. Celebrating milestones and special occasions with pets is that much more fun when they also have their own treats and cakes to enjoy, but cooking or baking for them might be a challenge because what might be tasty for us hoomans can be harmful to them, e.g. anything with chocolate can be lethal for dogs and cats!
Cakes made for pets are quite different from cakes made for humans. Although it's still every fur parent's responsibility to know the dos and don'ts, ordering from a pet bakery can take the stress out of figuring out what is safe.
Fur parents, these are the shops that bake pet-friendly cakes:
