During Thanksgiving, there are certain dangers that can affect your pet. In addition to open doors and windows allowing them to leave, loud noises and hot surfaces used for cooking can cause stress and pain. Of course, first things first, it’s important to keep certain foods away from your pet, period.
- No bones about it – bones can splinter and cause blockages and serious injuries to your pet. Keep them away from your pet’s mouth, please!
- Unless your turkey is boneless, skinless, and cooked in nothing but water, avoid feeding it to your pets from the table. Turkey and turkey skin can cause pancreatitis in pets, which can be life-threatening.
- Potatoes are a healthy and nutritious vegetable for humans and pets alike. But, when mashed with butter, sour cream, cheese, onions, garlic, or gravy, they’re not a safe option for your pet (and you should probably enjoy in moderation, too). Similarly, most veggies that are healthy on their own (think green beans, carrots, and more) can be enjoyed without all the extra ingredients often found in their holiday casseroles.
- Stay away from grapes and raisins, which can cause kidney failure in dogs.
- Say “no” to artificial sweeteners, which can be toxic to pets.
- Chocolate and other desserts are for you and your human buddies only. But, you knew that already, didn’t you?
- Your pet should never consume alcohol. And, be aware of unexpected dishes that might contain it, like fruitcake.
