Thanksgiving Dinner

We all sit down to enjoy our Thanksgiving dinners with family and friends. Fido and Muffin look up at us with those eyes. Yes, they are family too and want a heaping helping of that dinner also!

Some of our dinners at Thanksgiving include turkey, squash, potatoes, gravy, stuffing and so much more! But are all these delicacies safe for our cat or dog? No, they are not. Some can be very harmful and even toxic to your dog or cat.

If you want to feed Fido or Muffin that Thanksgiving treat, please contact your veterinarian first.

The following, however, are some good choices:

  • Cooked turkey (white meat only)
  • Corn (NOT ON THE COB)
  • Green beans
  • Plain, mashed potato (no butter or gravy added -PLAIN)
  • Seedless apples/pears
  • Cooked soft plain brussel sprouts
  • Plain pure pumpkin
  • Raw cranberries

The following are DO NOT feeds:

  • Nuts
  • Garlic, chives, onions, scallions
  • Raisins, currants, grapes
  • Gravy
  • Sweet potato (candied)
  • Butter or other fats
  • Stuffing
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Pies, chocolate or other sweets!

If your pet indulges in any of the DO NOT’s, contact your regular veterinarian or emergency clinic.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
