Thanksgiving Tips: Keep Your Dog Healthy!

on November 19, 2010

We all like to include our dogs in our holiday festivities, but many well-intentioned dog lovers and their equally well-intentioned guests have unintentionally hurt their loyal canine companions by “treating” them to some Thanksgiving goodies. This can result in making dogs sick or causing unhealthy weight gain; and before you say “it’s just one day out of the year”, remember that at least two more “food holidays” are coming up over the next month, not to mention all the pre-holiday parties!

I think I'll stick to my turkey dog food and curl up with a good toy!

DogChannel.com has a wonderful article about keeping dogs safe on Thanksgiving, and besides cautioning dog owners about feeding dogs “people food”, it also covers things like making sure candles are out of your dog’s way and securing trash bins so Spot doesn’t feast on your guests’ castoffs and hurt himself on trashed bones.

It’s a short article, but packed with great information!

    I guess dogs are prone to gaining weight during the holiday season just like their people:) I know Tiffy is looking forward to all the shrimp cocktail that is usually around this time of year.. And some dogs will raid the garbage if not closely monitored, so we do need to be vigilant about keeping that lid on tight!!
