Introducing large quantities of rich "people food" into a pet's diet on Thanksgiving is bad for their tummies! In fact, some typical holiday fare should never be fed to pets. One sure way to be certain no one slips up is to place the appropriate portion of your furry friend's normal snacks in a convenient location. Point out the healthy treats to your guests and encourage them to pamper your pals with extra petting or playtime . . . not to feed the snacks all at once.
- Small piece of white-meat turkey
- A few cooked, unseasoned carrots or green beans
- Spoonful of canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
- Sweet Potato Dog Chips
- Small apple or banana slice
What's on your pet's menu for next week?
