Tips on Thanksgiving food and your pet | Whitworth Animal ClinicFor most families, Thanksgiving means a mixture of food, fun, and football. But with all the feasting, dog owners need to be on the lookout for their clever friend sneaking a snack when everyone is passed out for the customary afternoon nap.

Although, giving your dog a slice of turkey or ham isn’t an problem, the following ILoveDogs.com list of traditional Thanksgiving fare can be harmful for the furry member of your family and should be avoided:

  • Bones
  • Raw or undercooked turkey
  • Turkey Skin
  • Dough or Cake batter
  • Beer
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions and Garlic
  • Sage
  • Nutmeg
  • Chocolate


The best way to make sure your dog stays healthy this Thanksgiving is to make sure you keep them well fed with appropriate food. Besides, if you give them a few suitable treats, we bet they’ll be more than willing to help you with that afternoon nap you have planned.
