Thanksgiving Pet Safety

Thanksgiving Pet Safety | Garden Valley Veterinary Hospital

Many of the holiday treats and traditions we love can cause health problems for our pets. Here are some tips to keep your pets safe:

Careful with turkey & trimmings! Bits of lean meat are fine, but fatty skin, gravy, and drippings can cause pancreatitis.

Bones are a choking hazard, as is the twine you used to secure your bird.

Stuffing have onion, garlic, nutmeg, raisins, nuts, or mushrooms? It’s a no-no for fido—and felines, too.

Make sure centerpieces & potpourri with ribbons, flowers and sticks are out of paw’s reach.

Beer, wine & other alcohol is dangerous for pets—keep glasses and cans above snout level.


Have a wonderful (and pet-safe) Thanksgiving!
