AVOIDING THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY DOGGY HAZARDS: ‘Tis is a season tosay thanks to those we love, including our doggy friends. Sharingsome morsels of people food’ with pooches, can be harmful-evenlethal-to dogs.

The foods we eat during the holidays have a tendency to be richand fatty, which can cause health problems in dogs now and down theroad. Vomiting and diarrhea are commonly seen in dogs given foodthat is not a part of their regular diet, especially foods that arehigh in fat.

Never give your dog poultry bones-they can splinter easily andstick in the esophagus, stomach or intestines. Keep him away fromchocolate-it can be fatal to dogs. The darker the chocolate, themore dangerous it is. If he is not trained to stay out of thegarbage, use a can with a lid, or keep it out of your pet’s reach.Dogs are amazing food scavengers.
