Harmful Holiday Foods For Your Pets

Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate what we are thankful for.  Your dogs and cats may be very thankful for a plate of turkey scraps or other yummy tidbit from the table.  However, they won’t be thankful for *pancreatitis, food poisoning or the dreaded trip to the animal emergency clinic.

This is a partial list of harmful foods that your pets may get their paws on this weekend:

  • Chocolate
  • Gum/Candy
  • Grapes
  • Raisins
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Avocados
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Tea Leaves
  • Coffee
  • Alcohol
  • Raw Dough
  • Spoiled Food
  • Fatty Foods
  • Bones  

 

*Pancreatitis
Inflammation of the pancreas, a severe and sometimes life threatening disease often associated with eating fatty foods. Symptoms include vomiting and a painful abdomen.
