The Thanksgiving Feast and Dogs

The Thanksgiving Feast is fastly approaching. 
We love the aroma of the turkey roasting in the oven,
So does your pooch. 
Can we share our Feast with our "Best Friends" 
without harming them?

These three items are about the only things,
 your sweet furbaby should eat 
from the Thanksgiving Table.

1/2 Sweet potato, cooked and mashed
1/2 cup of roasted turkey, no fat or bones, cut into bite size pieces
1 T Cranberry sauce, but no berries, skins or seeds

Mix together and serve.

 Be careful introducing new foods 
can cause bad results, 
like vomiting and Diarrhea , 
and could totally ruin you and
 your pooches Thanksgiving day.

What to watch for to keep your Pooches Safe on Thanksgiving:

When throwing away roasting bags, strings, twist ties,
and that pop up thingy..make sure these are securely thrown
out were the pooches cannot get to them. These are all potentially
dangerous objects, if eaten by a dog, that can cause a lot of damage. 
Remember That dogs smell, gobble up and don't ask questions.

Another thing to keep away from your pet is the utensils:

Knives, metal forks and spoons can also be harmful,
but dogs will try to lick them if they smell like turkey on them..

Also avoid, feeding your dog fatty, greasy items like the skin of the Turkey:

This can totally ruin your Thanksgiving, causing
your dog to vomit or have  diarrhea, or worse.

Lastly, Never feed your dog bird bones:

turkey, duck, chicken , etc. These have such small splintery
 bones that can easily get caught in their throats, tummies and even intestines.

Dogs and Crowds :

Also, remember  that dogs can get nervous around large crowds they are not used too.
So help your pet to feel relaxed by allowing them to be in their place or  crate away from the crowd. Many times a dog will bite, if it feels threatened by unsure situations. That would definitely ruin your Thanksgiving day.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving
and keep your pooches safe!
We Pilgrims Do like Turkey and Sweet Taters!
