Thanksgiving Pet Safety

Thanksgiving Pet Safety

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!
