Thanksgiving AND Pets

19 November 2017

Hi guys! Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Wowsers. Where did time go? Three years ago I was horribly sick and mum flew out to London on Thanksgiving Day to bring me home. Where does time go?

Because of the holidays, I know we furry pet parents are concerned what is allowed for our babies o eat... so I did some research and here is what I found:

Fox News: 10 Thanksgiving Foods You Should Never Feed To Your Pets
here are a couple of the ones to surprise me...
Onions: "No matter what form they’re in (dry, raw, cooked, powder, or within other foods), onions are some of the absolute worst foods you could possibly give your pup (it’s poisonous for dogs, and it’s even worse for cats)," Sadie Cornelius, Marketing Director for Canine Journal told Reader’s Digest.
Salty Foods: While us humans can never get enough of potato chips, pretzels and popcorn, these salty treats can lead to “excessive thirst and urination, or even sodium ion poisoning” in our favorite dogs and cats, according to the ASPCA. 
CareThanksgiving Pet Safety: Can Our Pets Eat Our Favorite Thanksgiving Foods? 
here are a couple of the ones to surprise me...
Corn: Loose corn is fine, but avoid corn on the cob.
Mashed PotatoesVerdict: Depends on how it's prepared.If the potatoes are plain and bland, with minimal fat and salt, mashed potatoes can be slipped under the table. But if you go all out like most people and add butter and heavy cream galore, it makes the potatoes less ideal for your pet -- and your waistline. "Fatty foods can cause GI upset and pancreatitis, which can be life-threatening," warns Dr. Collins.

If you are not sure about something, always best to look online or ask the vet! Have a great Thanksgiving and be safe. x
