With Thanksgiving quickly approaching us, and as we start prepping for this holiday’s feast, it’s important to keep in mind that there are a few types of food that your fur baby should avoid. Read below for a few of the ones to keep in mind:
While plain turkey is completely fine for dogs, holiday turkeys tend to be seasoned with all kinds of stuff. Recipes typically include salt, garlic, and onions, which are dangerous to dogs.
Even though pumpkin itself has nutritional benefits for dogs, pumpkin pie is loaded with sugar, which is never good for dogs. This type of pie also tends to have nutmeg as part of the recipe, which can cause seizures and central system problems if ingested by dogs.
Walnuts and Macadamia nuts can cause a toxic reaction in dogs. So if you’re preparing anything with these two nuts, make sure your doggie does not get access to them.
Similar to the turkey, gravy is often loaded with garlic, onions and different types of herbs, which aren’t safe for your fur baby. Foods that have high-fat content can also give your dog diarrhea or cause him/her to vomit.
Corn on the Cob
A few corn kernels usually aren’t bad for your pooch, however, if they get their paws on the cob, they can have serious consequences. The cob is difficult to digest, and as a result, this could cause bowel obstruction.
