Turkey, Pie, & Stomach Aches, OH MY!
Dogs wait all year for the smell of turkey on Thanksgiving. During the holidays we want to give our BFFs a special treat, but what’s safe and how much is too much?
Here’s some Do’s and Don’ts adapted from PetMD – read the full list HERE.
1. Turkey gets the green light
The worst side effect of eating turkey for humans is sleepiness. But if it isn’t done right, turkey can make canines sick. White meat turkey is a LEAN PROTEIN, which is great! Just make sure to get rid of the fat and skin and NO TURKEY BONES.
2. No Alliums
Alliums are delicious to people, but toxic for dogs. So absolutely no garlic, onions, scallions, or leeks!
3. Pawtatoes, yum
As long as your mashed potato are free of alliums and sour cream, feel free to give your dog a tiny potato treat.
4. No Grapes, but go cranberry crazy
Some cranberry sauces are too sugary for dogs, so be careful when you let you dog lick this T-day staple off your plate.
5. Save the good stuff for your human friends
Chocolate and alcohol should be reserved for people only. While T-day desserts and drinks are delicious, they can be deadly for dogs!
