Thank you to the Nutro Company for sharing their information with us and you. Great tips!
Thanksgiving is a time for celebrating with friends and family, but it can also pose many hazards for your pet. Here are some tips and tricks to keep your pet safe during the holiday.
Think Twice About Table Scraps – It can be tempting to treat your pet to table scraps, but many of our favorite foods can be toxic to our furry friends. Never feed your dog:
- Coffee or tea
- Grapes or raisins
- Onions or garlic
- Foods high in fat, salt or sugar
- Macadamia Nuts
- Foods with Xylitol
This list is not comprehensive. As a general rule, better safe than sorry; resist the temptation to feed your dog table scraps.
Keep Trash Out of Reach – Our pets have a much less refined palate, which means trash can be a tasty treat. Keep food wrappings, packaging and all other trash out of reach of your pet.
Keep Calm – With all of the excitement of the holiday, your pet may become excited or anxious. Make sure your dog gets plenty of love and quiet time to keep him from getting overwhelmed.
No Bones About It – Keep those poultry bones away from your pets. Bones – especially those from turkeys and chickens – can be a choking hazard and can cause lacerations inside your pet’s stomach and intestines. Ouch.
Keep a Balanced Diet – With Thanksgiving marking the start of the holiday season, make sure your pet gets the balanced nutrition he needs to stay healthy.
