The holiday table is set and as you sit down for the feast keep in mind not to share your dinner with your dog. There are many human foods this time of year that are very dangerous for dogs. Here is a list that we found from www.peteducation.com .
Alcoholic Beverages, Avocado, Bones from fish and Poultry, Chocolate Especially Bakers Chocolate, Coffee and Tea, Citrus Oil Extracts, Fat Trimmings, Fish (raw, canned or cooked) Grapes, Raisins and Currants, Hops, Milk and Dairy Products, Mushrooms, Onions and Garlic, Raw Eggs, Salt, Sugary Foods, and Yeast Dough
Many of the foods listed are dangerous and potently deadly for dogs. We all want to share the happiness of the holidays with our animals but the best feast for your dogs is their regular dog food. They will be happier and healthier if we don’t share the holiday table food with them. Instead of human food there are many great dog cookies and treats that are great for dogs.
We often become busy on Thanksgiving and forget to go for the daily “dog walk”. Even a short walk will do your dog a world of good. A good dog walk will keep them from being destructive and help them keep their “Good Dog” behavior throughout the day.
We at Takhari would like to wish you and your family a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
