Celebrating a Pet-Friendly Thanksgiving


Many families and friends will be gathering this week to give thanks.  Before the Thanksgiving festivities, here are a few tips to help your pet enjoy a safe and happy holiday too!

Pet Safety Tips:
  • Maintain Diet – Too many changes to your pet’s diet can cause an upset stomach.  Make sure that you stick to your pet’s regular meal and exercise schedule.
  • Avoid Toxic Foods – Chocolate, grapes and raisins are actually toxic to your pet.  Keep these foods out of reach so that your pet stays healthy and safe.
  • Keep Wrappers Away – Aluminum foil and wax paper may smell like food to your pet, but they can cause intestinal obstruction if they are ingested.  Make sure to dispose of these items in a secure garbage.
  • Provide Plenty of Water – Make sure your pets have plenty of fresh water throughout the day.  Thanksgiving is a busy day and unknowing family members may hit into the water bowl.  Refill it frequently to make sure that your pet stays hydrated.
  • Allow for Quiet Time – Your pet should have a quiet place to hide during the Thanksgiving festivities.  Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t become stressed over the holiday.
