Are you ready for Thanksgiving? All the delicious food with family and friends makes this holiday especially fun. With all that extra food there are a few things you should make sure your dog should never have. While sharing scraps can be fun, it can also be dangerous this time of year. Keep these tips in mind this Thanksgiving, so all your family members can enjoy themselves.

  • Talkin’ Turkey: If you decide to feed your pet a small bite of turkey, make sure it’s boneless and well-cooked. Don’t offer her raw or undercooked turkey, which may contain salmonella bacteria. Do not give your pet the left over carcass–the bones can be problematic for the digestive tract.
