Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to gather together over a delicious meal. Chances are, you want to share this special holiday with your pets as well. However, many foods served at this time of the year can be dangerous for your pets. Assisi Animal Health shares six foods your pet should avoid on Thanksgiving.
Bones. Bones from turkey are bad for your pet. Cooked bones soften and pieces can easily splinter while your pet chews them causing severe blocking in your pet's intestines. Throw bones away immediately and avoid an emergency trip to the vet.
Turkey skin and raw or undercooked meat. Salmonella is just as harmful to pets as it is to people, so don't feed your pet raw or undercooked turkey. Plus, the spices on turkey skin can be hard for your pet to digest, and result in pancreatitis. If you insist on rewarding your pet with a piece of turkey, make sure it is a tiny piece and fully cooked.
Beer and alcohol. Adult beverages can cause havoc on your pet's stomach—including fever, rapid heartbeat, liver damage, seizures, or even death. The hops found in beer can also be potentially fatal to pets.
Mushrooms. When a pet eats mushrooms, it can result in vomiting, seizures, and possibly coma or death.
Green bean casserole. This popular side dish is too rich and fatty for your pet. As an alternative, your pet can enjoy plain cooked green beans or just raw green beans.
Berries and nuts. Cranberry sauce can upset your pet's stomach, as can raisins and grapes. Macadamia nuts and walnuts can cause a reaction called toxicosis. If your pet is vomiting or lethargic, go to the vet immediately.
