Here’s hoping everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! That goes for your pets, too. There are a few safety tips to remember regarding what’s OK for your dog to eat.
- Don’t feed turkey bones. Poultry bones when cooked splinter, and can pierce the inside of your dog’s throat, stomach and intestines.
- Onions, raisins, cranberries and sage can be toxic to dogs, so avoid feeding foods containing these ingredients.
- Turkey skin and too much fat can cause life threatening pancreatitis in dogs.
- Sweets abound during the holidays. Never give your dog chocolate, as it is toxic to dogs.
- Avoid giving your dog table scraps. If you want to give a special treat, mix turkey meat with carrots, squash, peas, lettuce, spinach, celery, and green beans, which are all safe and good for your dog.
