Food Safety for Pets During Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving and Christmas can be stressful times for you and your pets.  Here are several things that may keep these holidays under control, as well as lists for safe and unsafe foods for your pets.  Set rules for your pets and guests.  Don't allow your pets to jump up on guests and make sure your guests know what and when your pet can have treats.  Find the time to exercise your dog.  This will help calm its anxiety and rambunctious behavior with guests.  Avoid feeding your pets human foods that are salty, sweet or fatty to avoid a trip to Animal Urgent Care because of vomiting, diarrhea or the ingestion of bones.
