How To Keep Your Pets Safe On Thanksgiving

Don’t feed pets turkey.

Turkey is generally safe for pets, but to please the human taste buds, the spices we add are not safe. Restrain from feeding pets skin especially, but you can feed dogs white unseasoned meat from the turkey, sweet potatoes, and peas, but no cranberry sauce, gravy, onions, scallions, garlic, creamed peas, raw yeast dough, stuffing or anything with seasonings. – Why no cranberry sauce? It’s high in sugar and some recipes contain grapes, raisins or currants, which all are toxic. Dried cranberries, aka Craisins, on the other hand, are perfectly safe. If you want to make your dog thanksgiving dinner, you can here.

Give them space, especially if family is over.

Pets may get overwhelmed when there are so many people around. Give them space, a whole room or just a crate, all to themselves.


If you take your pet on a thanksgiving getaway, remember to bring everything you need, food, treats, grooming supplies, a car seat, and anything else you need.
