Thanksgiving Pet Safety Tips

Thanksgiving is one of the most exciting days of the year for many people, but it can also be a deadly day for pets if owners aren't cautious and well-informed. Take a moment to review our Thanksgiving pet safety tips to ensure that the whole family has a magical holiday.

Beware of Bones
Turkey bones cansplinter when pets eat them, causing a severe choking hazard. If you give your pets meat this Thanksgiving, make sure it's boneless!

Turkey Talk
If your pets do get a little turkey treat, make sure it's well-cooked and don't share the stuffing: many common ingredients in stuffing, such as sage and walnuts, can be toxic to your pets.

Don't Share the Sweets
You probably know that chocolate is bad for your dog, but did you know that artificial sweeteners are toxic to pets? To be safe, avoid sharing any sweet treats with your animals. 

Watch the Dough
When an animal ingests uncooked dough, their body heat causes the dough to rise and expand, which can lead to some serious complications! 

Quality Over Quantity
A few bites of pet-safe foods shouldn't pose a threat to your pet, but make sure not to over do it. Too many treats could leave your pet with an upset stomach!
