Hi koha-pet,

Thanksgiving is almost here! As you get ready to gather with your friends and family and share a delicious meal, it may be tempting to give Fido some table scraps at dinnertime. While pets can safely enjoy foods like pumpkin and green beans, there are many common holiday meals that are NOT safe for our furry friends to eat.

If you plan to share food with your dog or cat this Thanksgiving, make sure to avoid the following:

Dog at the dinner table

Pumpkins are perfectly safe for pets to eat!

1. TURKEY SKIN, TURKEY BONES, AND DARK MEAT 

Turkey is a great source of protein for pets, but it's important to feed the right part of it. Avoid giving turkey skin, which is full of fat that can irritate your dog's stomach. Light meat is naturally higher in protein, making it a better choice for your pet. And of course, never feed your dog a turkey bone (or any poultry bone for that matter).

2. STUFFING, GRAVY, & MASHED POTATOES

These famous Thanksgiving sides may be delicious to us humans but are not so great for our furry friends. They have too many seasonings for dogs and can cause stomach upset. Many recipes include garlic and onion, which can be toxic to dogs and could lead to an emergency vet visit. Be careful not to feed your dog anything that could be cooked with these ingredients.

3. RAISINS & GRAPES

Raisins and grapes are highly toxic to dogs and can cause kidney failure. Stay vigilant to make sure your dog doesn't eat any that may be in the kitchen, on the table, or on the floor. Ingesting even one grape or raisin could be dangerous for your pet.

4. CORN ON THE COB

While corn itself is not harmful (although not nutritionally beneficial) to dogs, it's important to never give your pet corn on the cob. The cob itself is a choking hazard and can be extremely dangerous for your pet.

5. DESSERTS

Common desserts during the holiday, such as apple pie and pumpkin pie, are often filled with sugar and additives like Xylitol that can make your pet sick. Chocolate is another common sweet ingredient that is highly toxic to dogs. It's best to keep the desserts to your non-furry guests. If you want to give your pet a sweet treat, stick to plain apples and other fruits.

 

Thanksgiving can be a fun holiday for humans and pets alike - just make sure to stay informed to make it a safe for everyone!

Wishing you and your fur baby a Happy Thanksgiving!
