Pet of the Week Tips:

Thanksgiving is coming up and while it can be a fun holiday for people and pets alike, there are lots of foods that can make your pets sick. What should pets not eat this Thanksgiving?

Overindulging in Thanksgiving dinner can be unhealthy for humans, but even worse for pets.

  • Don’t feed your pets any meat containing bones as the bones can easily splinter.
  • Onions, raisins, and grapes can be poisonous to pets.
  • Don’t give your pet any dessert as chocolate is very harmful to pets and yeast dough can cause bloating.

What do you do if your pet has eaten something they shouldn’t have?

  • Call your veterinarian or an emergency vet clinic immediately
  • Prepare ahead of time by looking up your regular vet’s holiday hours and the closest emergency vet
