The turkey has popped, the stuffing is done, the family sits down to eat. Thanksgiving 2019 is in the books!
The furry family members nose gets to sniffing, you are feeling generous, and frankly you just cant finish your second plate of food – so you put it down and let the dog go to town. HUGE mistake!!! Do you know how many hazards a dog faces from your Thanksgiving meal? The biggest of them being food poisoning and swallowing bones.
I am sympathetic to the love of your dog and I know that puppy dog eyes are killer – but these hazards can actually kill, and an emergency vet call is the last thing you (and your vet) want during the holidays.
Cooked bones can splinter and cause severe internal damage to dogs. Bones can also be a choking hazard. This Thanksgiving make sure turkey bones are absolutely off-limits, along with any other cooked bones.
If you want to treat your doggo to a holiday meal I suggest you look at the treats below. They are all holiday themed, but they are 100% safe. Not only safe but they are made by Hills Science Diet, so a team of veterinary nutritionists specially formulated these to be healthy for your dog. Seriously, take a look! I wish I could say my Thanksgiving meal was healthy for me!
