Surprising Foods to Keep Away From Your Pets on Thanksgiving
We love our four-legged friends and we want to keep them healthy. Even more than we want to keep our own bodies healthy, it seems! With Thanksgiving, it's going to be very hard for our pooches to stay away from all those delicious smells coming from the kitchen. You should, however, keep them away from these foods that could be dangerous.
I remember when I was talking to my friend, Dr. Amanda Stanfield from Broadview Animal Hospital here in Dover about this and she didn't mean to be a killjoy, but WOW, there are a lot of things that you shouldn't feed your pet. I didn't know about a lot of these, Especially the seasoned turkey. Regular turkey, without seasoning, is fine and good for your pet, but not the skin, nor the seasoned meat. Who knew?! I feel guilty about my most beloved dog, Summer, our German Shepard. Man, we fed her EVERYTHING. I guess it makes sense because as I recall, we only had her about 7 years and dogs can live a whole lot longer than that. I remember her getting in to the trash when we had chicken bones in there and we had to take her to the vet. That wasn't fun, poor girl.
I also remember when I went to feed my nephew's dog and WOW, he got really upset with me because I didn't realize that so many common holiday foods are not good for them.
So, so you don't have a sick furry friend, here are some very common holiday foods, according to the aspcapro.org, to keep away from your pooch or kitty.
