All of those tasty Thanksgiving foods will have little dog noses sniffing their air and licking their chops for a little taste. While it's okay to give your pup a little taste of turkey, there are a few Thanksgiving staples to keep away from your furry friend.
Grapes and raisins contain something (it has yet to be pinpointed) that may cause kidney damage. Thanksgiving cranberry sauce can contain both grapes and raisins.
Garlic, onions and chives can also irritate your pup's stomach.
Be sure to warn Thanksgiving guests not to feed your little dog, especially if your dog has known stomach issues. If possible, it may be best to keep your pup in a separate room during the feast to ensure your fur baby doesn't eat anything he or she shouldn't have.
If you notice any vomiting or diarrhea, or your little dog seems lethargic or in pain, you can call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You may have to pay a $65 consultation fee to have your questions answered.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
