Here Are The Top 10 Thanksgiving Foods You Shouldn’t Give Your Dog
If your dog is like ours, she or he is very food motivated. And no time in the year is more food heavy than Thanksgiving. Here are the top 10 Thanksgiving foods you shouldn’t give your dog.
Nobody knows better than the American Kennel Club. They have released a list of the foods on the good list and the foods on the naughty list around the Thanksgiving holiday. It is no surprise there is an uptick in visits to the Vet. It is just so tempting to give your best friend a little slice of this or that. Which this and that should we avoid.
1) Ham. Ham is high is salt and can cause kidney damage
2) Turkey fat and skin. I am guilty of giving Winnie the skin. Seems safe but isn’t. It can lead to pancreatitis and stomach issues.
3) Foods with bone attached. Not even a big leg bone is safe.
4) Butter. Just like for us, butter is high in fat
5) Seasonings with salt and pepper
6) Greasy sides like mashed potatoes. That can give tummy aches fast
7) Stuffing. Those spices are not good for your little one
8) Gravy. So much salt and fat.
9) Chocolate desserts. Absolutely toxic for dogs
10) Alcohol. If you think this is funny, it is not. It can cause severe health problems in dogs.
