With Thanksgiving upon us, your pet may be dreaming about turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, but unfortunately there are harmful side effects that come along with theseholiday treats.
Dogtopia of Tri-Valley, a leading national dog daycare and spa franchise, offers the following tips tohelp pet parents keep their pets safe and healthy during the holiday season.
Prior to the Feast:
Turn a quiet room that is away from the holiday crowd into a cozy oasis for your pet.Take them shopping for a special chew toy in advance and pull it out when your gathering begins. It willoccupy their energies during those long family meals.
During the Feast:
Turkey itself does not pose great harm, but feeding it to your dog in the same form we eat it duringThanksgiving could leave your dog with an upset tummy.Avoid foods high in fat, such as poultry skin, which can cause inflammation. Poultry bones may splinter and become lodged in your pets' esophagus. Be sure to dispose of these in atrashcan with a lid to keep your pet out.
Keep leftover food out of reach in tightly closed containers.
