Thanksgiving means only one thing. Food and lots of it. It’s time to gather with family and friends to enjoy a delicious turkey and these amazing side dishes. It’s also one of the most important holidays when dogs hope to get a little taste of all that delicious food.
If you decide to sneak a little Thanksgiving treat for your dogs this year, consider the menu items dogs must avoid at all costs.
Believe it or not, the number one choice on your Thanksgiving table to keep dogs away from is turkey bones and turkey skin. Some dog owners may find this a bit strange, as dogs usually like to chew on bones. According to the American Kennel Club, turkey bones can be dangerous for our four-legged friends. Turkey bones “can potentially damage your pet’s digestive tract, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recommends keeping them out of reach.” Dogs should also stay away from mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and ham.
So no bones for your pets this Thanksgiving. However, there are some foods that your dogs can enjoy at the Thanksgiving table.
Five foods that are perfectly safe to give your dogs this Thanksgiving include the following:
- turkey meat
- sweet potatoes
- apples without seeds
- Green beans
Make sure to make a small plate for your favorite furry friend this Thanksgiving holiday. They’re part of the family, so they deserve a little turkey too!
