Thanksgiving Pet Safety!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner we’re all thinking and planning a warm weekend full of family, friends and food. Of course, your pet is a member of the family too and you want to include them in the festivities!

Though your pet would love to enjoy the traditional holiday meal with you remember that fatty meats, animal skin, gravy, bones and any rich foods can result in gastrointestinal problems, pancreatitis and other health concerns.

Remember to exercise extra caution around the foods that are toxic to pets including:

  • Alcohol
  • Grapes, raisins and currants
  • Chocolate
  • Baked goods made with Xylitol
  • Savory dishes made with onion, garlic and sage
  • Macadamia nuts

And keep the garbage locked up so they are not self-serving!

Whether you are heading out or hosting the holiday think about your pets needs through the holiday.

  • Ensure your pet has had enough exercise beforehand to ensure they have burned off their energy to keep them calm and peaceful.
  • If your pet’s social skills are not up to being a part of the holiday ensure they are in a safe place whether it is in a safe, quiet room at home or make arrangements for them in their favorite day care or boarding facility.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
