It’s that time of the year again: We're gathered with family and loved ones for the annual Mid-Autumn Festival reunion dinner or mooncake festival (safely and responsibly, of course, it is after all the year 2020), reminiscing about our childhood days of zooming around void decks waving colorful lanterns, sparklers, and candles (yes, hoomans partake in zoomies too). 


Now picture this: as you take that first delicious, mouthwatering bite into a double-salted egg yolk mooncake, a sudden movement from the corner of your eye catches your attention and you pause mid-bite... yup, your furkid has indeed materialized out of thin air and is currently giving you the biggest puppy dog or Puss-in-Boots eyes. You’re in the ultimate pawrent dilemma: is it safe to share the mooncake with your furkid? Will they never speak to me again if I don’t?


That is why we at perromart have created this Mid-Pawtumn Festival guide with pet-safe tips and advice on how to celebrate this tradition with your furkid! We will be sharing our favourite DIY Pet-Safe (dog and cat) Mooncake recipe with step-by-step preparation instructions and where to shop for artisanal pet-friendly mooncakes that will have your furkid (and possibly you) drooling in seconds.
Special woof goes out to our pals at B2K and Chef Duchess for putting together this instructional video:

Once your furkid has licked up every crumb to his satisfaction, be sure to finish off with some dental care practices. It is vet-recommended to brush your pet’s teeth daily with the use of pet toothbrushes & toothpastes, teeth and gum wipes, or plaque sprays. On top of this routine, you can reward your pet with dental chews that double up as treats in moderation!
