Thanksgiving Food

Written by

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, you may have the problem that I have with guests.

They feel bad for your dogs when they give the guest "that face".  Or in my families case... "any face". 

I love when guests come to visit for the holidays.  Thanksgiving is one of my favorites.  Lot of cooking, great food and plenty of clean-up.

The thing is with pets... The guests leave and the clean-up could be a lot longer and disgusting with the pets.

They do not process human food like humans do.  So when they give you those eyes give them a petting or a toy...  It will pay off in the end.

One holiday someone brought donut holes to decorate a dessert.  There were 24 total.  5 made it onto the dessert plate and my dog ate the rest of the bag.  19 donut holes for a little dog????

Dog Friendly Thanksgiving Items:  Carrots, Celery, Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, Apples, and Pumpkin (the pack pumpkin... not pumpkin pie mix).  And remember these items should be given unseasoned and maybe even uncooked depending on the dog...

Undog Friendly Thanksgiving Items: (Some of these are toxic to dogs and other pets.) Onions, Leeks, Ham, Turkey Bones, Casseroles, Garlic, Grapes, Stuffing, Turkey Skin, Corn on the Cob.  

Remember good rule of thumb is just keep your pets on their regular food and diet...  some things will fall on the floor, some pets take things off the table... Keep an eye on family members dropping and feeding dogs and pets toxic and lethal foods.  If they are not a pet owner they may not know... or they just might be trying to win over their favorite 4-leggeds.  And it may save you a lot of clean-up and a huge vet bill or worse...  Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.   Here is a More Indepth List - Click Here.
