Animal Lover? Tips to Make This Thanksgiving a Pet-Friendly Celebration!

Festivities are celebrations for humans, not for animals. High-calorie foods are part of the festive diet, but adding leftover scraps to your dog's diet will make it more sick.

Humane Society, a non-profit organization has warned people not to feed their dogs with Thanksgiving leftovers. Thanksgiving is celebrated on November 26th this year and it is a custom to cook a lavish feast on this day.

Thanksgiving meal mostly comprises of turkey, fish, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, cranberry sauce, hot rolls, fruit salad, mince meat pie, fruit cake, etc. These foods are rich in calories, fats, salts and sugars. Therefore, feeding dogs with these will make them sick and sometimes could even prove fatal.

Effects of Thanksgiving Foods on Dogs
  • Chicken and Turkey bones: Eating these can cause internal damages and may get stuck in the dog's throat.
  • Turkey fat: Don't drip turkey fats on your dog's plate as it can cause stomach pains.
  • Pumpkin: Pumpkin can cause diarrhea in dogs.
  • Raisins: Eating raisins or grapes can lead to kidney failure in dogs.
  • Raw onions and garlic: Uncooked or par boiled onions and garlic induce vomiting in dogs.
  • Tree nuts: Nuts like walnuts can cause central nervous system damage.
Make this Thanksgiving a pet-friendly one by restricting yourself from feeding dogs with thanksgiving leftovers to keep them fit and healthy.
